If you’ve recovered from your first trip to Outlast, then get prepared to be scared once again, as the Whistleblower DLC will be releasing on PC and PS4 next month.
It’ll be available on May 6th for PC and PS4 if you’re in the US, though if you’re in the UK you’ll have to wait until the PS4 store update the next day, on May 7th.
Whistleblower sees you playing as Waylon Park, who is a software engineer who emailed journalists around the world – including the game’s protagonist, Miles – at the start of the last game.
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, Waylon 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 Waylon’s anger, and set the stage for his unmasking of Mount Massive’s rotten core.
It sounds quite creepy, as it should, but it will be interesting to see how it holds up when compared to the full game. That screenshot is certainly something.
