Creepy Reversed Audio Easter Egg Found In Outlast 2’s Catholic School

As was shown in Outlast 2's teaser trailer last year, Red Barrels loves to play with reversed audio. That penchant was put to good use once more during the actual game.

Throughout Outlast 2, you will have to record certain events to get 100 percent completion. Once you record those events, you can play them back with narration by Blake. But, when you record events in the surreal Catholic School segments, their playback will just be static with echoing garbled audio.

On a hunch, GameRevolution reversed that audio, and transposed it onto the corresponding recordings. While we don't have everything down just yet, there are a few very clear words, phrases and sentences, and we have transcribed those below. Keep in mind, these may contain some contextual spoilers for Outlast 2.
