Get Outcast 1.1 for Free

Outcast 1.1 is currently available for free from GOG.com. There is no indication if this is a permanent price reduction or a temporary promotion, so it's best to act swiftly if you want in. Outcast 1.1 is a version of the action/adventure that was recompiled in 2014 from the original 1999 source code to run on modern computers. Word is: "The main improvements compared to the original version are: multithreaded voxel renderer for higher performances, software bilinear filtering on polygonal meshes, part of the HUD redesigned to match higher resolutions, new high-resolution sky paintings, new launcher, native support of xbox gamepad, user-friendly controller configuration, a lot of bugs fixed and improved stability." Here's more:
As part of a covert experiment, the US military deployed a probe designed to prove the existence of a parallel universe hidden from our own. Although the probe successfully entered the alternate universe and reached a planet called Adelpha, its first crucial data transmission is mysteriously cut short.

The probe's unexpected demise triggers a disastrous chain of events resulting in the creation of a black hole, one that threatens to destroy the Earth. Unless the missing probe can somehow be found and repaired, planet Earth itself is doomed.

  • Vast and diverse continents to explore, inhabited by thousands of living creatures
  • An excellent mix of action and adventure, well-designed combat and complete freedom of movement
  • One of the best games of 1999 with a memorable and believable storyline set in the not-so-distant future

Score! This was great back in the day, and now it's free! (and the stupid voxel graphics have been replaced with real graphics!).

That's awesome they did that but if you guys really want to experience this and get ready for part 2, pick up Outcast Second Contact. It is a gorgeous remaster but retains almost everything of the original including sound effects and bugs, lol. I actually was able to beat it, having never beat the original from like 1998. Still own the original jewel disc. Has a place in my heart, lol. Can't wait to see what they do with part 2.

Like Xero, said:
Outcast 1.1, voxels still but better filtering, etc, but, voxels, mm ...
Bug: seller stops conversation, can't get out of it.
Draw weapon, seller cowers, recovers, conversation continues.

Or buy Outcast Second Contact, the same original game, but remade with a new engine in 2017, so no voxels, and obviously much better graphics.
The game is so good, it deserves the best version.

Note: corrected my error, thanks Fakespyder, always a pleasure !

Coming out in 1993, Outcast helped lay the ground work for a new genre, open world shooters, around the same time as the first Just Cause. It usually gets painted with a broad brush for it's quirky Sci-Fi story and setting, but at it's core, it is a well done open world shooter.

I didn't enjoy Second Contact. I thought the graphics looked worse, the animation looked stunted... it lacked the charm and awe of the original.
