Red Barrels, the Montréal-based studio, is thrilled to announce that The Outlast Trials has captivated over 2 million players across PC, Xbox, and PS5 since its Early Access launch. Marking one month of adrenaline-fueled horror, the studio is launching its first limited-time event, Toxic Shock, along with a special accolades trailer as a token of gratitude to its growing community.

Celebrating Success with Blood, Sweat, and Cheers

As The Outlast Trials marks its first month out of Early Access, over 2 million test subjects have braved the Trials. Together, players have been marked by countless fatalities and extraordinary bloodshed, with over 38 million deaths and enough blood spilled to submerge NYC’s Central Park under a two-meter-deep sea of blood.

Despite the grim odds, an impressive over 600,000 participants have fought their way to freedom and became Reborn. Be prepared for what’s next: new trials and nightmarish foes are on the horizon, ready to test your mettle in unimaginable ways.
