The lights are on
Developer Red Barrels is working on DLC for the recently released Outlast that will follow a new character through the continuing horrors of Mount Massive Asylum.
The DLC will cover a new character's new storyline in the same setting, but that's all we know. Red Barrels is promising more details on Thursday, October 31, which is appropriately Halloween.
In honor of the DLC announcement (which is really more of a tease), Outlast is currently on sale for a 33% discount until Halloween. If you buy the game through the developer's website, you will also get the game's soundtrack, which became available today.
For more on Outlast, you can read our review. You can also see Conan O'Brien's experience with the game by heading here, as well as our own in our Outlast episode of Test Chamber.
Our TakeI'm surprised to see DLC coming to Outlast so quickly. Thursday might reveal a release date that is far out, but the fact that Red Barrels is already excited to talk about it means it probably isn't too far off. I'm interested to learn more about the DLC's new character.

Whoo cannot wait to see my fav youtuber's play it and me to get nightmares so awesome :D
what a great idea for dlc. i love when they do this, rather than just tack on additional story for the main character because it doesnt really progress or expand on the story
this game was scary i got mine steam i hope its good
Mount MASSIVE... still rad
I've really wanted to get my hands on this and can't wait for the PS4 version next year!! Looks to be a "TRUE" survival horror experience.
Can't wait to see if it's as good as the original. Enjoyed the simplicity a lot.
