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.

What a great expansion, one so beautifully blending and overlaping with the main storyline.

Waylon Park
He is a software engineer that was working for Murkoff Corporation and trying to expose them for their experimentation. Now I cut Waylon a little slack because to me he might’ve never been in a fight in his life, but I take it back because he had more reasons to fight back when it comes to this company one of the biggest ones is that he is made a patient against his will . Waylon should've been able to gain help from the people hes encounters with with in the asylum.

REason why I recommend this is because it tells you a big chunk of the story that you need to play.

While I do prefer its predecessor, this is definitely worth downloading and playing. It adds dimension to the events of the original game, while also introducing us to new characters and plot points. I have played through it several times, and it is still scary. Trying to gather all of the documents and notes is challenging, as well as trying to climb the difficulty ladder from Normal to Insanity. A really scary atmospheric game with an intriguing story and believable characters. I would definitely look into anything else 'horror' released by Red Barrels.

For horror Games I have always been a fan, since I was little I loved playing spooky games in the dark. But this game is something else. I can't emphasize enough how much I love this game's atmosphere. The thrill of carefully opening a door and peer inside to make sure it's safe, or make it to a room before a chaser, and slam the door just barely before he gets there, to slow him down. Looking around a corner or waiting in a locker before the coast is clear, praying that the guy who's after you won't check the one you're in. It is truly a scary experience
Outlast is probably also the scariest game I've ever played, not (just) because of the monsters and environments, but because of the run for your life sequences.
This game is amazing, I had such a awesome/frightening time with it, and the story-line was point-on
It's a beautifully well made game and I can't wait for the second one. I strongly recommend this to everyone
Thia is an amazing DLC, it opens up the story even more. If you buy Outlast, make sure to get this as well.

I honestly believe that this DLC is much better than the actual game itself, now don't get me wrong, the original game itself is very well made and detalied, but the DLC goes even deeper into the inner workings of Mount Massive, and the horrible atrocities commited there by the company running the place. It is more gruesome, but still a great add-on overall.

Also a note to all gamers who plan on buying this DLC; prepare to become a bride, darling.

I can say that this dlc couldnt be better! I also think that its story and ending makes you feel better after the ending of the normal game. 99/100 from me.. If you own outlast then you definitely need to purchase and this dlc.

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.
