DreadOut Remastered Collection Announced

One of the major announcements was the upcoming DreadOut Remastered Collection for PC and consoles, which includes the first DreadOut game and its add-on, Keepers of the Dark. In collaboration with Softsource Publishing, the remastered collection promises improved framerates and resolution, with potential additional changes yet to be unveiled.

Singleplayer Plans for Co-op Multiplayer Spin-off DreadHaunt
