The ONL stream for Gamescom 2022 had quite a few gloomy images to offer – especially in the closed beta trailer for The Outlast Trials shown there. But how do you actually sign up for the closed test phase? That and more you can find out here.
Finally, news about The Outlast Trials: During the ONL show yesterday, host Geoff Keighly also unleashed a new trailer for The Outlast Trials on the audience. It showed (as it should be for an Outlast game) damn ruthless images from a horror testing facility.
But, there was one thing missing from the “two-minute blood and guts fest”. Information on how gamers can sign up for the closed beta. Don’t worry: It’s as easy as pie. However, developer Red Barrels leaves it completely – appropriately – in the dark as to your chances of getting in.
Signing up for the Outlast Trials Beta is easy, but …
To sign up for the closed beta of The Outlast Trials, first, visit the Steam page of the game. Below the trailer section, you will see the green “Add to wishlist” button and the field “Participate in the playtest of Uninitialized”. Apparently, an error has crept in here, but for us, the reservation worked perfectly.
Now click on the green “Request access” button, confirm your action – and you are already pre-registered. It’s a shame that you won’t receive any information about the criteria used to select the beta participants. So you can’t fill out a questionnaire to positively influence the decision.
Accordingly, it is recommended that you make your Steam profile publicly available if necessary. It will certainly play a role in the selection of the participants, and which games an interested party has in their Steam account. In this context, however, more than one target group is likely to come into question.
When will the closed beta start?
The Outlast Trials closed beta will take place from October 28 to November 1, 2022. A release date has not been set yet, and there is also no information on which platforms the horror number will be released for besides PC.
We will cover every bit of information about the next entry into the depths of the Outlast universe. If you dont want to miss anything, just follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Discord (via Linktree).
