Outcast – Second Contact Next Month

Outcast – Second Contact will be released on November 14th for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, offering a complete remake of the original Outcast (time for a nostalgic music break). Alleviating concerns you play as the villain, they offer a new Hero trailer showing off the updated version of game. Here are some details, including word on a preorder bonus and an additional discount for owners of the original game:

Alone on an unknown planet, without equipment, with no trace of his companions and without even the slightest idea on how to complete his mission: that's the complicated situation Cutter Slade finds himself in when he awakens on Adelpha, an alien world as beautiful as it is dangerous.

“This mission will be a snap, commander! It's just a simple repair operation! What could go wrong? Well, let's count. I lost my crew, can't find the probe, my equipment is being used by the natives as rosary beads and I have one backpack with my HK-P12 and 30 rounds of ammo. I believe that places this mission somewhere just south of FUBAR.”
— Cutter Slade

But the one the extra-terrestrials call "Ulukai" is not without resources - quite the opposite. As an American Navy SEAL, Cutter is highly trained and has a pronounced love of adventure. His strong character and unconventional methods created serious problems for him back on Earth, so now the Second Contact mission is his chance to redeem himself. Fully immersing himself in an alien civilisation and culture, Cutter will have to negotiate with affluent merchants, rally rebel forces, fight the army of the tyrant Fae Rhan and survive in hostile territory. The future of 2 worlds depends on him!

Buy Outcast – Second Contact before November 29th and enjoy bonuses: on PlayStation®Store you will receive the original soundtrack and the Golden Weapons Pack (DLC), on Xbox Store you will receive the Golden Weapons Pack (DLC). On Steam, you will receive a 15% discount for the game and for the fans of the very beginning that own Outcast 1.1 you'll receive an additional 30% discount.

Excellent game, well ahead of its time. Great story, fantastic world building and some really interesting missions and events. The world is separated into separate areas and accomplishing goals in one area affects the others e.g. disrupt the mining operations and the enemy weapons will be weaker, disrupt the food supply and the enemies themselves will be weaker.

I miss the look of voxel engine as nothing else quite looked like it at the time, but clearly the graphics have improved so much it's irrelevant. The orchestral score is one of the best I've ever heard and really captures the mood of exploration and wonder.

Played it again a couple of years ago and it was just as good. Will definitely be purchasing this, though that doesn't seem possible on Steam at the moment for some reason.

i'm going to be very curious to see how this has aged. i haven't played the original since it released back in 99. i remember thinking even then how cheesy it was.. not often in the best ways.

GTFO!!! Whaaaaat???? I LOVE THIS GAME. I still have it on disc. I even bought it on Steam and it has like a zillion achievements. Everytime you pick something up the achievement icon pops up, lol.

This remake looks stunning. I honestly put some good time into the original despite the graphics from the 90s. It's that addictive. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

Stunning music, fun shooting mechanics that aren't all that complex, and a free world to roam from the get go once you get off the snow planet (basically training planet).
