Outlast Developer: We’ll Be Taking Advantage of the PS4’s GDDR5 RAM, Will Have Exciting Features
‘Sony were very proactive’
We recently interviewed Philippe Morin, co-founder of Red Barrels, the development team behind the upcoming survival horror game Outlast. We asked several questions about the PS4 version of Outlast to Philippe and he assured us that it will have ‘exciting’ features.
Outlast is coming to PC later this year and in 2014 for the PlayStation 4. Given the fact that Sony have been really pushing for indies on their next generation console, we asked why the game is not coming on the Xbox One.
‘Sony was the one to reach out to us. They were very proactive. They sent us a dev kit and invited us to E3,” said Philippe.
We also asked him whether they are using cloud computing and the DualShock 4 features for the PS4 version. Philippe did not revealed any specific details about it but it will surely have features that gamers can look forward to.
“The PS4 version of Outlast will come out early 2014, so we will focus on it after we launch on PC this summer. The PS4 has exciting features, but at this point we can’t commit for sure about anything specific,” he said.
One of the strongest parts of the PS4 is its super fast 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and Outlast developers will surely be taking advantage of the same.
“Development on the PS4 is still early, but I’m sure we’ll be taking advantage of the RAM available,” he added.
