Outlast will receive its first DLC expansion on both platforms in April, providing answers to many questions left open by the core game’s story.
Developer Red Barrels released the following synopsis on Facebook:
“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 pack serves as a prequel, but its storyline extends past the events of Outlast and gives “the final chapter in Mount Massive Asylum’s story”.
