A couple of days ago we gave you early word about some potential DLC coming to “Outlast.” Today we now have a name along with a description about what the DLC will be.
Whistleblower, the name of the DLC, will center on a character briefly mentioned in the intro of “Outlast” and will give players the chance to see what Mount Massive was like before the shit hit the fan.
Starting just before the events of the original game, Outlast: Whistleblower will take players on another terrifying journey through Mount Massive Asylum and into the depths of the human mind. As the whistleblower, whose anonymous tip brought original protagonist Miles Upshur to Mount Massive on one fateful night, you’ll encounter the experiments and abuse (conducted in the name of science, of course) that led to the asylum’s downfall – in fact, your encounter may be a bit too close for comfort… Explore the asylum minutes before the slaughter, then experience the outbreak firsthand. If you can survive, you’ll find new environments and meet terrifying new characters in another quest to uncover truths which were never meant to be revealed
I imagine that the gameplay will remain largely the same, with running and stealth being key to your survival. However, I wonder if the camera will make a return? The nightvision segments were among the most tense moments of that game. It certainly would make sense for a whistleblower to have some sort of camera to document things.
The biggest questions, though, are when will the DLC be available and how much will it cost? At this time, there is no planned release window (I asked), but with things like this, developers don’t like to wait too long before adding extra content. Ideally, we’ll know soon enough. For now, enjoy the first image from the DLC.
And don’t forget, if you want to get Outlast the game is currently 33% off from now until the end of Halloween on Steam and if you purchase the game through Red Barrels’ official site you’ll get the discount, a DRM-free version, a Steam key and the soundtrack.
