Outlast's Whistleblower DLC returns to the asylum

How did Mount Massive Asylum come to be the way it was during the events of Outlast? You'll soon get to find out in the game's upcoming Whistleblower DLC.


If you've played Red Barrels' first-person horror game Outlast, chances are that Mount Massive Asylum isn't going to be on your list of vacation destinations. But how did the asylum come to be the way it was? The answer to some of the questions lie in the game's first piece of DLC, Outlast: Whistleblower, announced earlier today.

Whistleblower is a prequel, putting players in the role of the original anonymous whistleblower whose tip brought reporter Miles Upshur to Mount Massive Asylum in the first place. Players will explore the area as it once was before witnessing the asylum's horrific experiments, minutes before the entire place would go up in a blaze of mass slaughter.

Outlast is out now on PC and is coming soon to PS4. There is no release date for the Whistleblower DLC.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
