Miles Upshur is a reporter and he is the main character of Outlast. After receiving a email from an anonymous source of Mount Massive Asylum which was bought by the Murkoff Company, stating terrible things happening to patients. Miles tries to expose them for a story "that will break the bastards." As Miles enters the Asylum for a report, he encounters dead staff and an impaled S.W.A.T member telling him to get out. Miles then tries to leave the place while encountering hostile patients, lock exists, and problems he needs to solve in order to escape.
Miles has a camera which has the ability for night vision, guiding Miles through darkness. Batteries can be found all-over the asylum to continue powering his night vision. However, his batteries don't seem to drain when his camera alone is up. His camera can record events that Miles will write about such as raising a camera up to Mount Massive Asylum before entering, or recording the impaled guard.
Miles himself is not a fighter, and his only ability is to run, hide or die. If Miles gets hit he will have to escape his pursuer and recover in order to take more damage if necessary. However, he will die instantly if he is hit with a machete.
Miles is played by First Person, his shadow can be seen at times, however his face is never shown.
