Outlast 2 PC Issues And Fixes (Black Screen, Sound problem, FPS Fix And Game Crash)

Outlast 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Outlast. Set in the same universe as the first game, but with different characters and a different setting, Outlast 2 is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets.

Outlast 2 introduces you to Sullivan Knoth and his followers, who left our wicked world behind to give birth to Temple Gate, a town, deep in the wilderness and hidden from civilization. Knoth and his flock are preparing for the tribulations of the end of times and you’re right in the thick of it.

You are Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife, Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch.

You’re following a trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe.
The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.

Unlock Outlast 2 30 FPS Fix

Since the game isn’t out yet, nobody has a clue as to how to solve this issue. The three most likely options are:

  • Patch – The developers at Hangar 13 might have a change of heart once they start hearing player complaints. One of the streamers who caught the issue said he talked to a dev about it and that they were “surprised”. Hopefully it’s all a big misunderstanding, and a first week hotfix will clear it up.
  • Ini file changes – PC being what it is, it might be that the setting can be easily changed by editing an .ini file. This is probably the first thing that will be checked once the PC version has launched.
  • Mod – If the first two don’t work out, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of the community might offer a solution by way of mod. Of course, this depends on how receptive the game is to modding and how well received it is – somebody has to care enough in order to work on an unofficial fix.
