Outlast: Bundle Of Terror
Top Critic Average
Publisher: Red Barrels
Genres: Horror, Action
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy… until now. Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely.
Whistleblower will let you play as Waylon Park, a software engineer under contract with Murkoff and the man who emailed journalists around the world - including Miles - at the beginning of Outlast.
Although Whistleblower tells the story that led to Outlast, it will actually stretch past the events of the first game to show the final chapter in Mount Massive Asylum's story.
Outlast Switch Launch Trailer
The Switch version of Outlast works fine, in the sense that Red Barrels achieved the maximum result with the minimum effort. The game is a 1:1 porting, virtually identical to the previous releases (except for the frame rate locked at 30 fps), an experience not suitable for the faint of heart, extremely emotional and always scary.

Outlast: Bundle of Terror is a marvelous contribution to the Nintendo Switch catalog which represents a very welcome addition in the field of horror games with its well-crafted atmosphere and plot. The game is simple and the action may be limited but the overall quality sets it very much above the average and players will easily spend many hours in its horror-filled environment.
