    • Well, OUTLAST and WhistleBlower take place at the same time. 

      Murkoff Account tells the story that happened between OUTLAST 1 and II. 

      OUTLAST II is either the end of the OUTLAST story, or the beginning of something new. 


      But, the ways it connects is weird. the way OUTLAST I connects with WhistleBlower and M.A is obvious, but to OUTLAST II? 

      I read the Murkoff Account series *even the last issue!*, and replayed every game, but it doesnt add up. Either there's something we're missing/missed...

      or Red Barrels has a suprise in store for us.

    • Well

      That's where the Tumblr page comes in...

      and it IS weird. Murkoff erected a tower that's incredibly relevant, let's just say that.

      Although, if that tower is weird...

      then maybe you're right.

    • There are some rather clear connections in regards to how the stories connect. Murkoff Account stretches before the events of Outlast, focusing on the Pauls' storyline, past the original game's events and the fifth one should fulfill some of the missing plot.

    • Well I think it's evident and proven already that Murkoff actually has a factory near Temple Gate, and they are performing similar experiments on a larger scale. I believe these experiments are causing the locals to become delusional, extremist and straight up crazy (this can be explained by the way the locals react to the white light). Another thing is we know that Lynn's pregnancy was psychosomatic (not real), and that's the reason why the female ward was shut down in Mount Massive Asylum, due to the morphogenic engine causing psychosomatic pregnancies in the female staff and patients. I believe that the Murkoff Corporation is not only experimenting on mentally ill patients, but also conducting experiments on the locals in rural and isolated areas.

      Murkoff never had female patients at the asylum and the female ward was still mostly abandoned during the first game, but I agree on the rest. They seem to have realized the side effects of the Morphogenic Engine could be weaponized (which Wernicke didn't) and decided to apply it to one of the most secluded and easy to secure place.

      I wonder how the inhabitants of Temple Gate never saw them building the facility up though, unless Murkoff used old buildings like the mine. Also was driving a population crazy their only objective for the experiment? There could be more to it.

    • "At the time of Ms. Cho's termination, the psychosomatic effects of the Morphogenic Engine on female employees and patients had been well established. (Already more than seven female employees and patients had reached fictitious half-term pregnancies in a matter of weeks before miscarrying the nonexistent children, five of them fatally.) Female employees were moved to higher floors in the facility, then to other buildings, and eventually off of the Mount Massive facility." '- according to a document in Outlast: Whistleblower

      Aside from that, we don't REALLY know what Murkoff are trying to achieve. We don't know the real reason why the morphogenic engine was created. I am also confused as to how the facility was built without the locals noticing, and where it actually is. Maybe Murkoff aren't even aware that there's anyone living in Temple Gate? I hope they release a DLC to further explain the storyline of Outlast 2, because compared to the original game, this is too damn confusing, and hopefully in the 3rd game we will get to learn more core information about Murkoff.

    • The facility is on the opposite side of a large lake, with said lake being rather far away from Temple Gate, so only a few people (Like John) were stationed there for an extended period of time, and if John's note is to believed he only noticed the facility after getting to higher ground and looking at the area from an angle where the only attempt at hiding the facility was thin, rather tall trees.

      So Murkoff did their best to hide it, and I can imagine them deliberately messing up the terrain around the facility (if it wasn't already messed up) so no villagers could get too close. They also likely had reinforcements at the facility during its construction just to be extra careful.

      Who? I missed this part

      I missed that note, although it contradicts Miscarried Profits where Blaire doesn't seem to know they experimented on women before. Also, the comics seem to suggest another story in parallel of Outlast 2 so there is a high chance that if they ever do a DLC, it will involve said facility.

      John is the author of a note found by the lake. He mentions spotting the towers, attempting to reach them and succumbing to the brainwash effect, awakening miles away later.

    • Yes after some researching I did find the note, and I also noticed that you can in fact see and record lights coming from some towers and a building when you get up the hill before going down to the rack. Pretty sure that that's Murkoff. (Also I forgot to link the aforementioned document: Gender Selection in Mount Massive Contractors)
