Outcast – Second Contact is a remake of the cult PC classic, Outcast…and it’s coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC next year. Want to check out the first images!?
Arriving in March 2017, Outcast – Second Contact is the expanded, full HD version of the 1999 adventure title that wowed the crowds back in the day. 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.
Hailed by critics and having received numerous awards for the quality of its visuals and innovative gameplay, Outcast is something of a milestone in the history of video games, and it is for that reason we are pretty excited to see Second Contact gearing up for an Xbox One release.
Even better news is that it’ll be presented for the very first time by the studio Appeal, during Gamescom 2016 in Cologne. Don’t miss it.
