Outlast 2 is a first-person survival horror video game released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 25, 2017. It is the second installment to the 2013 video game Outlast. It focuses on the story of a journalist named Blake Langermann and his wife named Lynn. They are on the way roaming the Arizona desert in order to uncover the dark secrets behind the murder of a pregnant woman known as Jane Doe. The two main characters are separated unexpectedly in a helicopter crash. And now, Blade has to find the wife while trying to travel through a mysterious village, the home of a sect, a person who believes the end of the day is coming to them. In other words, the Outlast 2 game introduces you to Sullivan Knoth and his followers left the wicked world behind so as to give birth to Temple Gate, a town located deep in the wilderness and hidden from the civilization. Knoth and his gang are getting ready to suffer tribulations that the end of times brings.

Gameplay

The Outlast 2 game is similar to its predecessors Outlast and Outlast: Whistleblower, a singleplayer campaign. The story is set in Northen Arizona. The game also has the found footage characteristics from the first one. You will take the role of Blade, an investigate journalist. You should to inspect and figure out the truth of a dilapidated rural area in Supai positioned near the western edge of the Colorado Plateau. Similar to the original, you are not able to fight. You can only protect yourself, run, and hide in lockers, barrels, wardrobes, beds, and pools. Nevertheless, you will have a much more limited stamina meter. Besides, you must manage to survive and run further or you will get slower, leading the chaser will catch you. You are equipped with a camcorder which allows you to view everything at night. Unlike the first game, you have a more advanced camera with clearer footage, zoom. The audio system will help you detect distant footsteps and noises. The inventory system will show the amount of footage which is recorded on the camera and the items they carry. The spare batteries that are suitable for the camcorder are spread throughout areas. You can collect the medical kits as well. The glasses will limit the own vision if they fall off.

Finally, there are some pros such as the incredible sound design and highly effective visuals. The hallucination elements are resolved very well. On contrary, you will find a few cons like highly repetitive gameplay is much more linear than the original. There is a lot of trial and error along with unpredictable deaths. Battery collecting is still silly. The plot lacks the originality.
