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.

Not as scary as the first one but overall this is a great DLC. Whistleblower is set as a prequel to the original game. You play as the guy who sent the email to Miles so that even he could enjoy the sexy Asylum that is filled with cannibals and Grooms who want to marry you by killing you.

Great story, definitely worth playing. Obviously shorter than the main campaign but well worth the time if you liked the base game.

In my opinion, this DLC is stronger than the base game itself! If you enjoyed the vanilla product, you have to buy it. (about 2-3 hours long)

The DLC for Outlast, 'Whistleblower', is more or less more the same sort of thing as the main game. And that'll either be a good or bad thing depending on who you are. They do switch up stuff, and they have a few new interesting stalkers, and a narrative that ties in well with the main game. But still, it for better or worse feels like an expansion of the game. If this is what you're looking for, you'll be very pleased. If you wanted something more different, this may not be it.

Something I noticed is that they tried to be a lot more radical with this one. And by radical, I mean they wanted to disturb the player and really make them feel uncomfortable. There's a specific section of the DLC that might really turn some people off, and this feels like the intended effect. And they deal with more radical ideas. It's hard to talk about this without spoiling elements of the DLC, but just know if you're offended, disgusted, or have an issue with nudity and mutilation, it is here in the forefront and trying to offend those with weaker appetites for the deranged.

You spend a little more time outside than you did in the main game, and most of the areas are new in the DLC (and those that you revisit have twists on them). There's also more on the overall story and outcome of the events that happened in the main game, so for those interested story-wise, it expands some on the universe and fallout from the events of the main game, as well as telling the personal story of somebody new who goes through the incident from beginning to end.

One thing I was curious about the DLC was how encounters would differ. One of the biggest flaws of the original game was that the encounters got very predictable after a while. Whistleblower does mix things up some, but honestly it was less different than I was hoping. There's no segments of 'Go to three points and exit' like the original game, and I noticed a bigger presence of back-tracking than I recalled there being in the original game. A few encounters were set-up to start at different points than you might expect, but they do feel like the same sort of thing. Though I did find the areas to be more designed to allow you to sneak around, the original game felt towards the end like it was throwing most of the same sort of things you'd already seen before during the last third of the game until the very end sequence, so I was hoping to see more mix-up here.

The new stalkers (of which there are two new main ones of) are both enjoyable. One makes a very distinct sound, which makes his encounters much more audio-based. The other is deliciously deranged, and charismatic. You also encounter a few of the original game's stalkers once or twice, but notably they seem to have chosen the stalkers that didn't appear much in the original either.

The DLC I would place at 2-4 hours long. It took me 3 & a half hours to complete it, but I got confused at a few segments of what I needed to do, and took some time to look at things.

It's well-made, and really does feel like an expansion. If that's what you want, more Outlast, this is it. And it's good. However, if Outlast dragged on you, then this is more of it. It's well-made, but not really all that different. There are some fun encounters and moments, however. But heed that it all gets more messed-up than the original game. I don't say that exaggeratedly, they obviously decided to take advantage of the fact that DLC is not rated, as if it was this goes into some ESRB AO-Rated territory.

A good piece of DLC that maybe isn't revolutionary or all that different from the main game, but is still well-made and worth experiencing if you happened to like the main game.

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.
