It appears that Outlast's upcoming Whistleblower DLC will miss its originally-projected April release date. The newest tale of Mount Massive Asylum is now set to drum up some scares on May 6 for both PC and PS4.

Was the original Outlast story not terrifying enough for you? Red Barrels isn't finished telling spine-chilling tales just yet, as the developer has announced that it will be debuting a new DLC prequel story called Outlast: Whistleblower this April on PC and PS4.

It was not so long ago that our own Adam “Murder Maestro” Smith lamented the lack of imagination in horror stories. Implausibly trap-laden asylums, spoooooky forests, and hastily cobbled-together castles dominate, while more interesting locales and subject matters are few and far-between. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that horror’s stuck in a full-blown rut, it could certainly end up there if it keeps wandering down the same predictable trail. I’ve been thinking about it, though (largely while replaying Amnesia: The Dark Descent as Halloween nightmare fuel), and I’ve come to realize that there are some amazing avenues ahead for stomach-lurching scares in gaming. Problem is, there are a few major, perhaps even primeval forces that could slip a dangling noose around possibility’s all-too-exposed neck.>

Outlast might not have been the most inventive horror game ever, but it certainly brought the scares. There is, however, some intrigue in exploring its Standard Horror Setting asylum before> it became an implausible sea of saw blades and psychosis given flesh. In fact, I really like that idea – if only because I want to see horror attempt settings that are less trite, typical, or otherwise funhouse-y. Whistleblower is about, well, the whistleblower that clued in original protagonist [Silly Name] to the crazed goings-on at [Another Silly Name's] asylum. It takes place during a time when everything was still up and running, before it all descended into wanton slaughter. Sounds pleasant, right? Of course not. This is the beginning of the end. You just get to witness it up close.

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.

October is the best month to start thinking about games that will send shivers up your spine. It's the time to think about games that you can play with the lights out and the window open a crack. It's the time to find games that will leave you a quivering mass under your bed.

One game that has proudly waved the horror banner in 2013 has been Outlast, from the team at Red Barrels. Outlast sees journalist Miles Upshur investigating a strange asylum, only to find terror unlike any he's ever seen. The game has received praise from both critics and members of our own Shacknews Chatty community. So now seemed like the best time to reach out to Red Barrels co-founder Philippe Morin and ask some questions.
