The RB Team is pleased to announce that our DLC Outlast: Whistleblower will be released on May 6 (PC & PS4 America) and May 7 (PS4 Europe). Stock prices for diapers are about to rise again!
Hello Gamers,
The whole team here at Red Barrels is pleased to reveal that our first DLC, Outlast: Whistleblower, will be released this April for PC and PS4!
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 in Boulder 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.
See you in the asylum.
The RB team.

Outlast Now Live on Steam: Will you Survive?
Red Barrels’ Terrifying Survival Horror Game Challenges Players to Run and Hide from the Horrors of Mount Massive Asylum
MONTREAL – Sept. 4, 2013 Independent game development studio Red Barrels, founded by veterans from some of gaming’s biggest franchises, today announced that the highly anticipated survival horror game Outlast is now available on Steam. Frightening previewers since this year’s PAX East, where some attendees were so startled that they jumped through the booth, Outlast follows investigative journalist Miles Upshur as he explores Mount Massive Asylum with his trusty night-vision camera, hoping to break the story of his life. But his story – and his life – is quickly put in danger as he discovers a mystery that walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely…
To experience the game that aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind, download Outlast from Steam now for $19.99:
“Outlast contains intense violence, gore, graphic sexual content, and strong language,” said Game Designer and Red Barrels Co-founder Philippe Morin. “Please enjoy!”
Inspired by Red Barrels’ true passion for the horror genre and real-life cases of criminal insanity provided by scientific consulting firm Thwacke, Outlast features:
• A True Survival Horror Experience: You are no fighter - if you want to survive the horrors of the asylum, your only chance is to run... or hide
• Immersive Graphics: AAA-quality graphics give players a detailed, terrifying world to explore
• Hide and Sneak: Stealth-based gameplay, with parkour-inspired platforming elements
• Unpredictable Enemies: Players cannot know when - and from where - one of the asylum’s terrifying inhabitants will finally catch up to them
• Real Horror: Outlast’s setting and characters are inspired by real asylums and cases of criminal insanity

About Outlast:
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy…until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

MONTREAL — July 24, 2013 – Red Barrels announced today that its darkest brainchild, survival horror experience Outlast, will be available on September 4, 2013 for digital download on Steam for $19.99. Outlast received great accolades and awards this past E3, even earning the honor of “Most Likely to Make you Faint.” White-knuckled attendees playing the game for the first time struggled to maintain composure (and consciousness) when faced with the frightening effects of Outlast’s immersive audio design and the shocking truth of what lies inside Mount Massive Asylum. Outlast will keep hearts pumping and palms sweating as players’ fiercest fears are awakened.

Miles ventures blindly into the asylum where a bloody crime scene forebodes a gruesome story to unravel. Players will be in for a true derangement of the senses this September, where fainting may be the only way to escape.
