Outcast: Second Contact Revealed For Consoles, Launches March 2017

The Outcast remake has a confirmed release window publisher Bigben Interactive reveals ahead of Gamescom showing.

The remake is being developed by the original developer, too: Appeal has stated that it'll introduce cutting edge graphics and reworked controls for optimum immersion.

This is an expanded version (in full HD!) of the 1999 adventure game, which in many ways pioneered the open world genre of gaming. You can check out our gallery here.

Bigben Interactive has stated:

"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 game will release in March 2017 for consoles and PC - more information will be revealed at Gamescom.



  • I really hope they can finally make the game they wanted to back then. This'll be a blast.
  • I always loved Outcast and I was supporting their Kickstarter (that unfortunately didn't reach the goal). I'm glad to see this coming and I can't wait to play it ! :)
