Outlast Prequel DLC to Blow the Whistle on Mount Massive Asylum


Here’s a little Halloween treat to snack on from Red Barrels. (Actually, you may not want to snack on it. Who knows where Red Barrels gets its treats from…)

Indie horror game Outlast, available now on Steam and coming early next year to PlayStation 4, is getting a prequel DLC chapter called Whistleblower. As the title suggests, the DLC will take place prior to the events of the original game, starring the whistle blower whose tip sent Miles Upshur straight into the horrors of Mount Massive Asylum. As this whistle blower, you will experience the terrible experiments and torture that led to the asylum’s current state of disarray.

Red Barrels isn’t ready to reveal any more details beyond that, but while you wait for more information to hit you can always go play the original Outlast to prepare for the DLC. It’s 33% off right now across all the various digital download storefronts. Or if you buy it through the Red Barrels website you can receive the soundtrack for free.
