Outcast - Second Contact Released

Publisher Bigben and developer Appeal now offer the promised release of Outcast - Second Contact for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The launch trailer provides a look at this remake that uses the source code from the original Outcast. Here's the news:

Set off on a wondrous journey and discover the marvelous planet of Adelpha. But this trip is for business, not pleasure! A mission of utmost importance is waiting for you! Embody Cutter Slade, the most badass soldier in the U.S. Navy, as he's sent to an alien planet to recover a damaged probe that's threatening to destroy the Earth. Hailed as a messiah (L'Ulukaï) on your arrival, you find yourself swept up in an adventure where the destiny of two entire worlds is in your hands.

Outcast — Second Contact was developed from the original's source code, but the voxels of the time have been replaced with more optimised graphics. New elements were added to make its gameplay more modern and dynamic, such as new types of combat, dodging abilities for Cutter Slade, and a reinforced AI for the enemies. Finally, a revised and more accessible interface will guide players through this adventure worthy of the greatest sci-fi films.

Highlights:

  • An open world inhabited by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.
  • Total freedom with your missions and actions, which have consequences on the balance of the world.
  • More than 50 hours of gameplay in this heart-pounding adventure.
  • Spectacular fights thanks to an extensive arsenal and futuristic gadgets.

Outcast - Second Contact is now available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC.

Outcast 1.1 from GOG.com is already really very playable and solid.

I'm not sure who this game is marketed to.

Yeah the graphics are nicer but that's seems to be all there is. No added features like deformable terrain, physics, reactive particles or reactive environment.
