Outlast on Nintendo Switch Out Now

Ever since Nintendo Switch has joined the market competition, AAA game developers have been considering re-introducing their popular titles to the platform followed by an announcement. So, developer Red Barrels decided to join the revolution with their first-person survival psychological horror game Outlast from 2013 and surprisingly, the game is now available on Nintendo Switch eShop without any prior release date announcement.

Following is a disturbing brand-new trailer for Red Barrels’ psycho horror franchise on Nintendo Switch as Outlast: Bundle of Terror.




Although Red Barrels have let the fans know that they are bringing Outlast and Outlast 2 on Switch in the beginning of 2018, there was no mention of a specific release date. They didn't even make a sound about this project till December 2017 and all we had was a Facebook Post on the developers' page of a developer playing the pre-release version of the game on Switch, which truly isn't much for a helpful clue to know when it is due on the Nintendo console.

Just like the creepy in-game jump-scares the game inspires to the players, it was pretty fitting for Outlast to pop out on Nintendo eShop out of nowhere. The Switch version titled "Outlast: Bundle of Terror" contains Outlast and its prequel downloadable content Outlast: Whistleblower. The DLC actually came out a year after the release of the original game though. Outlast 2 probably is the next in the line of Switch release and we won't be surprised if they stealth release the sequel.

With major video game titles like Batman: The Telltale Series, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Doom, Mercenaries Saga Chronicles, Payday 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus have either already released on Switch or awaiting their upcoming release at this point, bringing the Outlast franchise to Switch was a pretty good move for developer/publisher Red Barrels for reaching out to more audience. You can also pre-order Outlast 2 for Switch even though the eShop site still doesn't have a page for the game.
