The Outlast Trials‘ first limited-time event, Program Geister, is sure to push the most experienced Reagents to the edge. The event will run from October 27 through November 14 and introduces a few exciting mechanics and cosmetics.

Reagents will be able to play select Trial Programs, however, a few new variators will be in effect. Included in these trials, players can expect increased hallucinations, more Imposters present, enraged enemies, and hidden player names to fully immerse you into a total panic.

Also special to this event are Geister Tokens. Geister Tokens can be gained when succeeding in a Geister Program and can be used to get exclusive outfits and cell customizations.

In addition to Program Geister, Reagents will also be getting two new storylines in the new Program, Courthouse. Reagents are tasked with sabotaging the prosecution of the Murkoff Facility’s ‘innocent institution.’ Courthouse also introduces a new objective enemy: the Scapegoat. Players can use the Tracker to find the Scapegoat to activate a Microwave Trigger device to bring them to an explosive end.
