Outlast: Whistleblower Coming to Terrify You Again on May 6
Independent game development studio Red Barrels today revealed that Outlast: Whistleblower, the first DLC for the critically-acclaimed, widely-feared survival horror title Outlast, will be available to download on PC and PlayStation 4 for $8.99 on May 6, 2014. Taking gamers back to Mount Massive Asylum, the hell on earth that over 2 million players explored in the first game, Outlast: Whistleblower will again challenge their sense of safety and comfort as they encounter firsthand the corporate conspiracies and deranged experiments that led to the blood-soaked halls original protagonist Miles Upshur faced.
Outlast: Whistleblower follows the story of Waylon Park, the software engineer under contract with the Murkoff Corporation who emails journalists around the world – including Miles Upshur – at the beginning of Outlast.
Players meet Waylon a few weeks into his time at Mount Massive, during which he has been unable to even contact his wife and son thanks to strict security protocols. Having developed a deep-seated distrust of the profit-motivated scientists and doctors leading dangerous and irresponsible experiments on their patients, Waylon ends up setting events in motion that lead to the unmasking of Mount Massive’s rotten core.
Whistleblower starts the story that led to Outlast, and stretches past the events of the first game to show the true final chapter in the story of Mount Massive Asylum.
