Outlast 2’s PC Specs Have Been Revealed By Red Barrels Studios

PC Specs

Outlast 2 is coming next week, after a long wait for fans. Since the game’s announcement, developers have been hard at work on story, soundtrack, and game mechanics – creating a terrifying new experience for gamers everywhere. So terrifying, in fact, that the game was temporarily banned in Australia because of the gratuitous amounts of non-consensual sexual violence and gore contained within the story. Now, as fans of the previous title wait in anticipation for the game to drop next week, Red Barrels Studios has revealed the PC specs required to run the game at top efficiency, giving PC players a chance to secure final preparations before the big launch.
