‘Whistleblower’ will be the first downloadable content for Outlast to be released in April for the PS4 and PC. A survival horror game where the player is in first-person view as a journalist escaping an asylum with only a camcorder to see in the dark, while avoiding danger in every corner.
Red Barrels, the developer of the game announced the exciting news on their Facebook page stating:
Whistleblower will let you play as Waylon Park, a software engineer under contract with Murkoff and the man who emailed journalists around the world – including Miles – at the beginning of Outlast. Spending a couple of weeks at Mount Massive, during which he was unable to even talk to his wife and son in Boulder thanks to strict security protocols, Weylon developed a deep-seated distrust of the profit-motivated scientists and doctors leading dangerous and irresponsible experiments on their patients. Identifying with those poor souls fueled Weylon’s anger, and set the stage for his unmasking of Mount Massive’s rotten core.
The DLC, Whistleblower will take you in deeper into the story of Outlast, where you will be able to play the story that led you in the events that took you to the first place.
