Red Barrels conducted a Reddit AMA this week all about Outlast on Switch. Philippe Morin, co-founder and senior game designer, as well as senior programmer Mathieu Gauthier participated.

Between the two, they spoke about how the games have been selling on Switch, porting them to the console, why they run at 30 frames per second rather than 60, and more. We’ve rounded up some of the more noteworthy comments below.

Now that both Outlast games can be downloaded on Switch, Red Barrels has come out with a new series trailer. We have it below.

Outlast - Nintendo Switch

The popular survival psychological game Outlast recently landed on Switch. Its sequel, Outlast 2, also arrives later this month.

Bringing both of these titles to Switch looks to have gone very well for developer Red Barrels. On his LinkedIn profile, programmer Mathieu Gauthier indicates that Outlast 1 and 2 were ported “from scratch” in just “a matter of weeks”.

Without any prior announcement, Red Barrel Games brought Outlast to the Switch eShop this week. Get a look at the new launch trailer below.

Direct-Feed Games has produced a video to show how the newly-released version of Outlast for Switch stacks up to the PlayStation 4 edition. You can watch it below.

Outlast - Nintendo Switch

New footage is in showing off Outlast on the Switch. Check out the gameplay below:

Despite no prior announcements, Outlast showed up on the Switch eShop around the world today. Red Barrel Games has since confirmed some technical information.

When docked, Outlast runs at 1008p (apparently this isn’t a typo) on Switch. The resolution drops to the highest possible amount of 720p in portable mode. Also, in both modes, Outlast runs at 30 frames per second.

Outlast 2 will launch for Switch on March 27. Thus far, Red Barrel hasn’t provided any technical information about that title, but it’s possible that it will run at the same frame rate and resolution.


Update: Bumped to the top. Outlast: Bundle of Terror is out now in North America as well.

Original: We knew that the Outlast games would be coming to Switch at some point. Yet strangely, out of the blue, Outlast: Bundle of Terror has popped up on the European eShop and can be purchased right now.

It’s unclear if this is a mistake, but it’s rather odd for this to appear randomly. In any case, we have some screenshots of the game on Switch below, along with an overview.

The horror franchise Outlast is on its way to Switch, Red Barrels has announced. The two games are set for release sometime in Q1 2018.

Today’s news comes as part of a larger status update from Red Barrels. The company has ruled out DLC for Outlast 2, and has teased something else in development in the Outlast franchise.
