I’ve got bad news for everyone. Our offices have been overrun by the undead. We’ve managed to take out a large sum of them, but with low ammo and our webmaster being bitten, things aren’t looking too well for us. We are currently locked up in the cafeteria located at the far end of our headquarters. Rather than calling for help or contacting the local authority through my Laptop, I’ve decided that now would be the perfect opportunity to write one last possible piece for MP1st. Sorry, Niosus. Your wounds will have to wait.
Time for some undead updates!
I know these aren’t multiplayer titles (well some are), but since it’s the holiday and some of you guys are looking forward to these, we thought we would make this an exception. Plus, these do make great titles to play when your with a group of friends.

Oh, and that’s not the only reveal from thechineseroom’s (developers). Speaking with PC Gamer, Dan Pinchbeck revealed that the team is looking for players’ screams. Yes, that’s right. They want you to send them audio files of your screams.
“What we really need are some screams,” he says. “We want fans to record themselves screaming, puking and freaking out. Tape it all, send it through to us, and we’ll sift through it and the best stuff will end up going into a background mix for one of the levels.”
Send your screams here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outlast (PC) Release 2013
Outlast: Probably the most impressive, in terms of graphics, out of all these horror titles. After watching this trailer, I have never been so hyped about a horror title since, well, since forever. In a way, it does look to follow the Amnesia formula – leaving players with no weapon whatsoever and a limited source of lighting.
