The Outlast Trials is a fairly new game, as it's still in Early Access, but developers are going all in with events and festivities this year. These event updates include new features, limited-time modes, and updates to existing content to keep the game as fresh as possible.

For 2023's spooky season, the game is celebrating with a Halloween event that includes some special limited-time gameplay items, a new Trial, and quality-of-life updates. Here's everything included in The Outlast Trials' 2023 Halloween Event, as well as when it begins.

The Outlast Trials' 2023 Halloween event will begin on 26 October 2023. It'll last until 2nd November, giving players about a week to enjoy the special features.

Also going on during this time is a Steam sale for the game; it'll be 20% off to celebrate the Halloween season, allowing new players to start enjoying the game (and the event) at a lower price than usual.
