Oh Boy, Petrifying PS4 Survival Horror Outlast Is Getting DLC

Posted by Kell Andersen

The horror never ends

If you fancy yourself a glutton for punishment, and you've access to an endless supply of clean undergarments, then we're delighted to inform you that utterly terrifying survival horror Outlast will be receiving downloadable content. Positioned as a prologue to the main story, the Whistleblower pack will see you playing as the anonymous tipster from the first game, and aims to detail all of the blood curdling nastiness that led to Mount Massive becoming such a messed up menagerie of masochism.

The story will also cover the events directly following the main game, which is terrific news for the three of you with sufficient internal fortitude to have made it all the way to the nail biting finale. We'd love to provide some searing journalistic insight into what all of this might mean in the grand scheme of things, but unfortunately, this particular reporter is not equipped with the cojones required to play a game such as Outlast, let alone its DLC.

Will you be picking up this devilish add-on, or was one trip through a mental asylum more than enough? Scream for dear life in the comments section below.

Really, really excited for this. I thought Outlast was exceptional, barring a bit of repetition with one particular enemy type. Really liked the setting, and I can't think of another game that's made me jump as much as this one.

I'm glad they're going to expand on the ending because I thought that was probably the weakest part of the game. Also wasn't a fan of the way so much of the narrative was locked behind collectibles. Don't get me wrong, I did as much exploring as possible — but I found it hard to find all of the documents when most rooms are pitch black and there's a great big mutant following you.

Outlast isn't as scary as people say it is. At first, yeah, but the game turns you into a badass by the end, since the game builds you up. The AI can be hell sometimes though.

Buying this day 1, Outlast is one of my favorite PSN games ever!

I can honestly say I never had a dull moment in this game... Even my lodger who's no gamer...was hooked yet terrified by it said it was better than watching most horror movies. Can't wait for dlc, just hope they can keep that level of terror up and add new things to keep it fresh

Really enjoying this game, but still working my way through it. I can only play it in short bursts. Definitely plan to finish, but not sure if I will be up for DLC once I'm done.

Here's the pattern, every game that gets released free on PS4 will eventualy get DLC to get at least some revenue from the PS4 PS+ users.
It apply to all the cases and makes complete sense.

It wasn't all that scary barring jump scares...and the section involving the Doctor but it's atmosphere and the tension it built is superb. I think I'm very very close to the end of the game...I had to pull myself away from it at 12am to get some sleep.
While the whole camcorder/night vision thing works well in the main game I hope it isn't forced into the DLC, and they flesh out the narrative with some good spoken dialogue as it seem it's set before and during the fall of the facility.
Outlast is the best horror game I've played in a long long time.
