Red Barrels will release ‘Whistleblower,’ the first downloadable expansion for Outlast, on PlayStation 4 and PC in April, the company announced.
‘Whistleblower’ tells the story that leads up to Outlast, but stretches past the events of the game to show the “final chapter” in Mount Massive Asylum’s story.
Find a synopsis below.
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.
