About This Content

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 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.

Although Whistleblower tells the story that led to Outlast, it will actually stretch past the events of the first game to show the final chapter in Mount Massive Asylum's story.

Have you ever wondered who'd sent the message to Miles Upshur in Outlast? Who made him approach the facility so that he would fall victim to the many horrors its inhabitants have already faced? There is no wonder why the DLC was titled Whistleblower.

So, you play this guy from the inside who needs to escape just like Miles needed to. While I use past tense it should be noted that his story was first - Whistleblower is meant to be a prequel. Also, the story of our new protagonist is a bit more interesting (after all, he is not an investigative journalist), but revealing anything further would be a spoiler so I'll refrain from doing that.

Whistleblower is long. As an expansion / DLC pack, that is. 3-5 hours is what you get and the content seems excellent. The concept is the same here: you have chase sequences, sequences that give you jump scares, crazy inmates who desire to grab and consume you and of course extreme violence and gore.

The sequences where you needed to turn 3 levers or press 3 buttons are now over. There are no repetitive tasks as the developers have eliminated these. However, the various stages sometimes seem a bit more "labyrinthine"; there is no clear indication as to where you need to go and sometimes it is easy to get lost. But the solution is right there - you just need to jump up somewhere you never thought would be possible.

Overall, Whistleblower is a great addition - an example of what a good expansion / DLC pack should be. I highly recommend it to all of those in favour of Outlast.

Simply put: if you like Outlast, you'll like the Whistleblower DLC. The gameplay is virtually identical (which is a good thing) and it fills in more of the story that takes place before and after the main game. I found the enemies in Whistleblower to be a little more sinister and dangerous (if you can believe it). Simultaneously fun and terrifying.

Again, same gameplay as Outlast (including the camera). It's just an extension of the story.

Definitely recommended, if you know what you're getting yourself into! Where the original game had a lot of (mandatory) "hide & seek", this DLC was more about a) exploring the amazingly immersive and creepy environments, b) running into REALLY INSANE PSYCHOPATHS (way more insane the original), and c) and running like hell.

There were a couple frustrating parts where I had to "die" a few times to learn the layout of an area (in one case resorting to YouTube for a less-than-obvious passage), and a couple awkward spawns right next to the psychos, but overall I felt the experience was quite polished and cohesive.

I thought the length was reasonable: about 2 and a half hours, a little bit longer than a movie. In fact I thought to myself a few times that the whole experience felt like a movie, in a good way. Yes it's quite linear and there are many scripted events/cutscenes, but everything is tied together so seamlessly, and the immersion level is so high, that it didn't bother me at all.

As noted by others, if you are easily (or even not-so-easily!) disturbed then this game probably isn't for you. It pushes the envelope beyond anything I've ever seen, and I consider myself relatively desensitized to video game horror/gore!

P.S. this is the only game to ever make me look away from the screen, while protectively clutching my manhood... I'll leave it at that ;)

Outlast: Whistleblower DLC is an incredible addition to the game. I was worried that after being worn out playing Outlast that Whistleblower would be flat and lose its fear factor, I was wrong. The game catches you out still in a creepy and sadistic expansion keeping in style with its original. The situations you face and witness are even more terrifying, gory and damn right strange. Although short at two and a half hours its was worth every penny because its another perfectly created nightmare to play through.

The fact that the full Outlast game showed that the whistleblower died means this prequel DLC is kind of pointless

WARNING: This DLC is not for the faint of heart. I wouldnt reccomend anyone under the age of 13 play this.

Now that being said, this DLC was great, i say it was even more horrific and traumatizing than the actual game. It goes hand and hand with the main games story, and it makes a few connections to the main game. Its also quite long for a DLC, worth every penny.

I thought this wasn't going to be as scary as the first, but I was wrong! The DLC is pretty sweet! If you like Outlast, then you will love the Whistleblower! And by love, I mean you will feel more terrified of the crazies you end up meeting and you might highly likely be disgusted from the disturbing (or should I say vulgar) things you'll see. D:<

I played through Whistleblower on Nightmare difficulty just like I did the original, and it pains me to say it but it just wasn't as intense. I never felt truly afraid of my surroundings. Perhaps that is the point this time around, playing as a fellow inmate rather than a journalist. The main curtain has already been pulled back. There is no great mystery drawing you deeper into the madness, just survival, shock horror, and trying to escape it all.

Whistleblower shows a different side of the events that unfolded at Mount Massive Asylum. It's an ok ride, nowhere near as good as the original story, but still better than most "scary" games out there.
