Outlast 2 released a new update today which restored cut content that may have given it the AO rating. For all platforms, they've also released a story mode just in time for the Nintendo Switch Release.
Interesting. Though I imagine that the content they had originally cut was given the ok for an M rating later on? Otherwise it would be strange that you could remove content that put the game at an A0 rating, only to add it back in months down the road without consequence. Either way, I like that they've added a tweaked mode. I love Outlast, but man, I could barely make it out of the opening area in Outlast 2. Felt like I was being chased every time I breathed.
Esrb doesn't/can't regulate patches, as far as I know, so maybe loophole?
Unrated Director Cuts?
Omg if this is an untapped loophole... the potential lol. How does a game that’s been rated get more heated content above it’s given rating? Idc I’ll take it. They’re gonna need by the looks of how demented Agony looks
Can't wait for Agony!
This is exactly why the new ESRB label for Microtranactions will not work.
Was just planning on playing this again
Iv still have to play outlast 2 work work work gets in the way outlast 1 was amazing love the game
Anybody know what was added?
I've been planning on buying this game for a while... That pushed me over the edge. 70% off on PlayStation Store today!
Looks like they slid their AO content right in the back door!
I see what you did there. =D
Yep! I consider it a come from behind victory for inserting AO content into a console release!!!
I've never played them but I'll get them for Switch, anyone tell me how good they are???
From the reading of the statement they are not inserting AO material into the game but instead simply adding some stuff that got removed when they were trying to have it pass AO. As example if say a Pizza delivery guy scene was removed completely due to the AO rating potential they might later go back and add it minus the AO specific encounters. So people shouldn't get their hopes up for AO material... likely the pizza is the only thing hot in the added material. ;)
