Thread: Outcast: Second Contact (PC, PS4, XBOne)

  1. Outcast: Second Contact (PC, PS4, XBOne)

    Last year, the developers of Outcast failed to raise money for an HD remake on Kickstarter. It seems development has carried on anyway and it's now slated for a March release and looking very nice. If they waited until it looked this good before going to Kickstarter, of course, I'm sure they'd have been more successful, but of course it seems they didn't need it in the end.

    I read the thread title as "Outlast" and thought, "I'm surprised anyone cares enough to make a thread about the sequel." Now I'm much less surprised. I've never played the original but recognize that I need to.

  3. that's a lot of voxels

    They did a modernized port called "Outcast 1.1" a while back, but at this point might as well wait for this remake.

    It's kind of odd to see these companies put out updated ports in order to fund remakes that in some way supplant those same ports. System Shock did the same thing.

    The original is still awesome so I would prefer a sequel over a remake but I can't complain too much. Those screens look great. The style is still there. Hopefully they won't dumb down the design. Going back to it a few years ago, it was refreshing to have a big 3d action-adventure without much handholding.

    Outcast is one of the best games I've ever played. If they can ramp the combat difficulty and enemy AI up a touch and make shooting in first person work, I'm all in.
    To boldly go where lots of men have gone before...

    The hope is that this will help lay the foundation and (if it sells well) budget for a sequel. That's very much what they hope to do next.

    They're looking to modernize the interface and controls, but I think they want to keep the rest of the design pretty much identical.

    I don't know about first-person, but they did say they want to add a hard mode with smarter enemies.
