Genesis Pt. 1: The Nightmare
It doesn’t take long for things to go bad in Outlast 2. Flying to a remote reservation in Arizona, you (Blake) and your companion are chasing a strange story. All the details haven’t been revealed yet, but there are hints of something gruesome. A strangulation – and a fetus.
Taking a helicopter to your destination, a strange flash of light appears in the distance. It’s enough to kill the engines of your chopper, sending it spiraling into the valley below. When you wake up, you’re not where you started.
When Blake (you!) wakes up, you’re inside a school, facing a crucifix. Is this a Catholic school? Time to start exploring. Turn right at the end of the hall (and try to ignore the locker that opens all by itself) – at the first right turn, you’ll see a strange man walking away. Follow him down the brightly lit corridor.
The doors slam shut at the end of the path. Turn around, and you’ll face a mysterious girl… and a tidal wave of blood.
This is just the start of our full walkthrough for Outlast 2. Check out the rest of the parts as we continue to update in the Table of Contents above.
