As some of the most terrifying recent horror games to release in the past few years, the Outlast series has combined thrilling jump scares with the terror of a restricted POV thanks to its video camera mechanics, and now the series can be experienced on-the-go with its surprise release on the Nintendo Switch.

Developer Red Barrels has announced that Outlast: Bundle of Terror — a package which comprises of the first game and its “Whistleblower” DLC — is releasing today on the Nintendo Switch, after the studio previously confirmed that the series would be arriving for the system sometime this year. Red Barrels clarified that the games are already available now in some regions (such as Europe), but will be rolling out to other territories (like North America) throughout the day.

Outlast II is also scheduled to release on the Switch sometime later this year, and while no specific release date has been confirmed just yet, pre-orders for the game are available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
