Outcast has been released over 15 years ago, pioneering in the history of open-world games, and it's time for the now classic to make a glorious comeback on modern hardware.
Earlier today, Bigben and Appeal Studio have confirmed that Outcast Second Contact, an expanded HD version of the classic adventure game, will launch during March 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
A fantastic and futuristic adventure, Outcast uses cutting-edge graphics and reworked controls for optimum immersion. As Cutter Slade, players can dive into the extraordinary landscapes of planet Adelpha in an attempt to pierce its secrets in order to prevent a terrible catastrophe... and along the way will uncover many things that will even surprise fans of the original. Outcast takes place in the near future when Humanity has just discovered the existence of a parallel world, Adelpha. The American government, which was behind the discovery, sends a probe there to investigate. The experiment is a success but a native of Adelpha, a Talan, attacks the probe and causes a distortion of space-time that threatens to destroy the Earth. You are Cutter Slade, a former Special Forces operative, assigned to escort a group of scientists sent to locate and repair the probe. Nothing goes as planned, however, and you find yourself embarked on an adventure on an unknown planet, with the future of two worlds in your hands.
The first batch of Outcast Second Contact screenshots has also been made available today, and you can check them out right below.
