Sullivan Knoth addressing his followers

Testament of the New Ezekiel[1] is an antagonistic cult led by Sullivan Knoth that appears in Outlast 2. The group is located in a remote settlement simply known as Temple Gate.

Plot

As Blake and Lynn Langermann investigate the murder of a Jane Doe, they're led to the canyons of northern Arizona. Because of the location's inaccessibility by road vehicles, the two take a chopper which ends up crashing in a narrow ravine due to unspecified complications. Blake wakes up some time after, only to discover that Lynn's missing. Venturing deeper, Langermann soon realizes that he's been stranded in a remote village that's inhabited by a cult who believe that the end of times are upon them.
