A new piece of DLC expanding upon the story of horror title Outlast will launch on PC and PlayStation 4 in April, Red Barrels has announced.

Titled 'Whistleblower', the DLC sees players take control of 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".

The DLC is set both before and after the events of Outlast, exploring the events that led to the original game's story and expanding on the ending to "show the final chapter in Mount Massive's Asylum's story".

"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," says Red Barrel. "Identifying with those poor souls fueled Waylon's anger, and set the stage for his unmasking of Mount Massive's rotten core."

A price for Whistleblower has yet to be announced. Outlast is currently available to download for free on PlayStation 4 via PlayStation Plus.
