General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4May 6, 2014
PCMay 6, 2014

Publisher: Red Barrels

Genres: Horror, Adventure

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.

Outlast: Whistleblower's hellish adventure is still scary, but relies too heavily on the same old tricks.

Outlast: Whistleblower doesn't muck around with a formula that's already proven to work, and it subsequently succeeds at extending the spooky atmosphere of Red Barrels' survival horror release. The new campaign accompanies the original game well, and even improves upon it in many ways. It also ups the ante in the terror department, hitting harder and more frequently, without relying too heavily on jump scares. As such, if you liked the main game, this expansion is a real scream.

Outlast: Whistleblower isn't quite as memorable as its parent game, but nonetheless provides plenty of grisly encounters and tells a more complete story.

Whistleblower is an impressive and welcomed addition to Red Barrels' Outlast canon, and is incredibly easy to recommend as a result.
