Outlast, a first-person survival horror game previously available on PC and PlayStation 4, has arrived unannounced on the Xbox Marketplace. Costs £15.99 / US$19.99 / AU$26.95
Is it free? It was on ps4
It was free with PlayStation Plus, not free for all. I know some people like to stir the pot, but at least try a little harder. =\ On Topic~ Glad to see this game finally made it to the Xbox One. Great game for the survival horror fans out there.
Is it rentable through Live?
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Prepare to get absolutely terrified. I cant even go back to this game.
I havent made it far at all! I forced myself to get into the house and progress abit, but I couldnt find a security door so I happily stopped playing. The game is too scary for me but if you like that pick it up~
Okay admiral, is it free for Gold Members? That is a legitimate on topic question.
I agree, with you on that one admiralvic, every survival horror game must experience Outlast. I'm glad it's available for Xbox One players too.
Free with PS+... true, but PS+ is required to play retail games online on PS4 so many PS4 owners are subscribed to it by default, much like Xbox Live Gold memberships. X1 owners didn't get this game "free" with their subscription though so I think the comment about it being "free" on PS4 is somewhat valid. Even though it was only said to be an obnoxious troll.
@morganfell No, it's not free for Gold members. So tell us how evil Microsoft is for charging us for a game, how much better the PS4 and PC versions are, and then be on your way so the rest of us can have a legitimate discussion. On-topic (really on-topic): I played this for about fifteen minutes at around midnight last night. Got scared and threw my controller across the room, so I decided to wait until daylight. Excited to play after work.
Who doesn't have plus? Meaning the game was free on ps4
You are misreading matters creatchee. And apprently the misreading got under you skin. I asked a simple question. And I asked it because of admiral's response completely avoided the legitimacy of DEEBO's inquiry. I agree DEEBO may have seemed like he was trolling but if you catch your breath a second and reread his remark it may also have been nothing more than what it was. A simple question. The real problem is you do not like the answer to that question because you feel it looks bad for MS. You are more concerned with perception than reality.
@ morganfell You're defending a person who lost a bubble for trolling and uses an avatar of a bunch of Xbox One's stacked on top of one another (I believe from Skewed and Reviewed craptastic "I went to Costco and they couldn't sell them and I think this is news, so I wrote an article and put it on N4G article a few months back). Furthermore, it shouldn't be our fault that their post was read as such. It wouldn't have killed the person to say "Any chance this will go free with Games with Gold? I only ask because it was a PlayStation Plus title" or something along these lines and it would have went from an obvious trolling attempt to a legitimate question.
No I am not defending him, rather the legitimacy of the question he asked. And as a question it was not only legitimate but lacking smugness, snideness, or any accusatory language. Do you not think the answer to that question is of any importance to Xbox One owners - the persons that may or may not have to pay for the game depending upon whether it is free? No matter how he phrased the question you would not have liked it because it was the answer that lit you on fire. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the manner in which it was postulated and for you to now surmise there was some less offensive manner is simply absurd and transparently dishonest. Laughable to say the least.
@ Morganfall But you're still ultimately defending the person. Like I mentioned, their avatar / display picture is a bunch of unsold Xbox One's, they lost bubbles for trolling and they've many Sony fanboy comments, so it's pretty obvious that the intent was to troll / get this reaction. Furthermore, when you go into reading it that way, the "it was on PS4" comes off as a smug remark. However, you very clearly think everyone is out of line because the question is, in theory, legitimate. "No matter how he phrased the question you would not have liked it because it was the answer that lit you on fire." The funny thing is how you attack me for assuming DEEBO was trolling and then assume a lot about me. For what its worth, I only clicked this article to get the link to report another Outlast article as a duplicate ( http://n4g.com/news/1534803... if you look at the numbering order, it was submitted just after this one) and saw DEEBO's comment. I posted because I dislike trolls and nothing more. Perhaps the funniest thing is that I don't even own an Xbox One or even a 360 for that matter.
@Admiral, No, uhm, no, and of course, no. Have you ever heard the phrase, "Even a broken clock is right twice a day?" That is the case here. Perhaps not on purpose, yet he is correct and the question is valid. It is very much apples to apples. It was simple, straight forward, and without any reference. That question could have been asked by someone with no gaming budget this month because they genuinely wanted to play the game on the X1. Now I will say I asked the question not for knowledge but to make a point. Soemtimnes though it isn't what you write that matters but when and where, or in this case how. Your defense is that you do not own a X1 or 360? So what you are telling me is you did something innocent and perception is condemning you or twisting your actions into something else? Does that not sound the least bit familiar? I assume nothing about you other than what you wrote - as you did with DEEBO, plus I am influenced byu the unavoidable knowledge of your post history. The odd thing is I actually like your posts. I have seen you here and think you are actually one of the more balanced thinkers on the board. And that is a double hurdle, balanced, AND thinker. But I do not agree with you on this and full well know I will never agree in this matter. The reason being is the simplicity of the statement and the validity of the question leaves no wiggle room for debate.
@ Morganfall "Does that not sound the least bit familiar? " That was exactly the point I was trying to convey to you. Just because my post defends the Xbox One, doesn't mean I am doing it because I don't like the answer. I was doing it because I don't like trolls. "But I do not agree with you on this and full well know I will never agree in this matter." Then lets just agree to disagree. There is no point in arguing if neither party is ever willing to concede.
So why not grant the post by DEEBO the same thing you are asking for your own posts on the Xbox, taking the post at face value - as a simple direct question. You want a consideration that you are unwilling to grant him. If what you say is indeed fact regarfding your position then I say both of you should be held in the same face value light.
@ Morganfall So I guess thats a no to agreeing to disagree? Okay then... "So why not grant the post by DEEBO the same thing you are asking for your own posts on the Xbox, taking the post at face value - as a simple direct question." 1) My post was just pointing out the irony that you were doing the same thing that you're calling me out for. 2) As I've already pointed out, I got ample reason to believe they were trying to troll. You yourself even note this was where your mind first went "I agree DEEBO may have seemed like he was trolling." 3) Your "simple question" defense is pretty weak. Even the excerpt says "Costs £15.99 / US$19.99 / AU$26.95," where as it would probably note it would be free with Games with Gold if it was. Even then, you could just check the store and see if it was free, since we don't know the future lineup of Games with Gold and can only speak for the now. In the end, I don't see why you're making this into an issue, though I will not be continuing this debate.
Again, no. Your original post, the one that started this was not pointing out anything to me because at that point I was not yet in the conversation. See the difference there? DEEBO was trying to troll? Now you are back to denying him the face value assessment you wish to reserve for yourself. Me calling you out? Doing the same thing? Okay, fine. See the difference? I don't deny it. I don't see it that way but I will not deny that is your perception. Yet here you are going after DEEBO all the while doing the same thing. The hypocrisy is in the denial. And since when does agreeing to disagree mean shutting up? I beleive that is actually what you wanted. Also the tagline you wasted time quoting does not bother to define whether these prices are across the board or Gold Inclusive, so that point about them being listed is moot since there is still vagueness in the matter of to whom the price applies.
Please don't turn it into that. Its completely unnecessary. On subject. Glad more people get to experience the game. Freaky stuff 🆓or not.
im sad , cause its garbage
Sloppy seconds for xbone owners.
Wouldn't this be sloppy thirds? Sloppy seconds would have been the PS4 version that came out months after the original PC release.
@DeadRabbits I wonder why you have 1 bubble? Yoda is right though. It was on PC first.
soooo scary. im near the end i think.at least i hope couse its killing me =D
Says a lot for how serious people are gonna take [email protected] then huh?? I thought if it came to other platforms first it was banned from Xbox?? Gotta love how MS back up themselves when the crap hits the fan and sales are bad.. Seems MS are instead just cherry picking the ones that sell well on PS4 and allowing those games to break the rules..
Use your other bubble ask ask about the resolution and framerate, and the trolling will be complete.
I paid 19.99 for it on ps4
You should get a PS+ subscription.
I didn't renew my ps+ yet, I'm waiting for destiny and driveclub. only game I play online at the moment is titanfall
Did you read the Article?
Fun game for sure :)
For sure fun game:)
I haven't finished this yet but what I've played so far I've really enjoyed. Great to hear Xbox One gamers now get a chance at this fantastic indie title. So it's sounding more and more like MS's parity clause is done. Oddworld announced it'll be coming to the Xbox later, this game launched first on PS4 and now it's coming to Xbox One. If Microsoft has relaxed restrictions on developers they should really make an announcement or something. I know speaking to other developers there's a few of them that are simply skipping Xbox development altogether rather than have to deal with MS's arbitrary restrictions at all. Although, I guess that shouldn't be surprising considering how poor MS's communications with indie developers have been overall, from what I've experienced personally as a dev and from what I've heard from other devs trying to get onboard MS's [email protected] train.
I know it doesn't release until 24th, but has anyone tried to even buy this on X1? You can...if you find it in the search you can buy it and Whistleblower right now. I wonder if this preloads it (or auto-downloads it later).
It's available to play now.
very peculiar. good to see the good indies going multiplat though. played it on my ps4. great 4-6 hour game
I'm downloading it now. Hope it's available to play immediately
Enjoy, this game is very effective at being scary
Good news as more and more games are being bought to the XB1 which pretty much mean the parity clause restriction is either gone are less restricted now. Hope to hear news about No Man's Sky soon.
Technically this game falls under the "deal before ID @ xbox went live" clause which is allowed.
Thats right and its the reason why New and Tasty is coming to the Xbox One ad well. Regardless they still need to get rid of the parity clause.
Ah right.. Thats good to know.. Even so some will see this as MS cherry picking what was a good game from Sony and allowing it past the parity system because it was a good game and well received..
This game was from Red Barrels. It wasn't signed as an exclusive. It came to PS4 first because of Sony's good strategy and Microsoft's policies. No Man's Sky has been signed exclusively to begin with because Sony was interested in the game and actively reached out to Hello Games to make it possible on PS4. You'll probably be waiting longer, if an Xbone version even comes out. PC is guaranteed though.
I don't have to wait, I'll just buy it on PS4.
At the Sony press conference, NMS is announced as making its console debut on PS4, not that it was exclusive to it.
DOWNLOADING. I never played it before.
It's funny, i've seen you write how all the indies on the PS4 are bs games that no one cares about.. Enjoy hypocrite.
I have read him saying that indies are not reasons to buy consoles. No one is going out to buy a X1 or a PS4 for indies. Where did he ever say all indie games are bs on ps4?
"What really need to die are indies" "No indies!" "Xbox has a very strong library of triple AAA (not indies) games. And this is what people want." There are loads more along those lines, stop being so ignorant. This game has a higher metacritic than most exclusives released. If you haven't figured out that this troll, along with his blatant second accounts, uses the whole indie situation as an unreasonable point of argument as to why the XBone is better, then you've been living under a rock. A game is a game, Journey won game of the year, No Man's Sky looks amazing, Outlast is great, while Ryse and Knack sucked. AAA isn;t necessarily all its cracked up to be.
It's an experience like no other game you've ever played.
Now indies are good? Sad, sad, sad.
One of my fav games on PS4! Enjoy Xbox-ers!!
The term is Xboners lol
Glad to see it came to the X1. Have fall all! I HIGHLY recommend this game for anyone who's a fan of the genre. It's awesome. And the whistleblower DLC is shorter, but just as great if not more. Def on my top 10 games of all time. NO MATTER WHAT SYSTEM YOUR ON, HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK!!!
Xbone fans, buy this game!
And adult diapers because they will crap themselves when they play it. :)
I jumped out of my skin within the 1st 5 mins playing that!!
Happy more people can enjoy this horror gem :3
This is a game u wish u had a vr headset for
I've grown quite accustomed to my sanity, thanks.
played this with plus, it's well worth a playrhrough on easy lol, but it's that type of game I can only play once hence after completion I deleted
It's more a stealth game than a horror game. It's not as scary as some make it seem either.
Enjoy it folks, it's a great game.
Whistleblower is up on Xbone too. Why in the hell would this all get put out without even the slightest word? That's just fucking bizarre.
Glad to see PLAYSTATION only gamers, saying nice things in the comment section to the XBOX only gamers :-) This is how N4G should be. Anyhow, this game is scary! Watched a stream of it through PLAYSTATION LIVE. I missed the PS+ free download of it! and never got around to buying it. I may pick it up for my XB1, if it's a deals for gold release.
The only ones who don't deserve to play a game like this are those that keep hating on Indies. The rest deserve to play this game. Hopefully they get a good port and I hope they enjoy it.
a great game, glad its available for xbone players aswell. outlast devs deserve tonmake as much money as possible. outlast was too freaking scary for me. i couldnt complete it ;(
