  • Outcast - Second Contact

Humanity is not alone in the universe, after all.
In Outcast: Second Contact, players assume the role of the hard-faced hero Cutter Slade, a veteran elite soldier exploring the universe, when first contact with intelligent lifeforms goes awry, as a government-issued probe is destroyed by the inhabitants of Adelpha. As a consequence, an energy cataclysm is created which threatens the very existance of earth. As Navy Seal Slade you'll come across deadly enemies in a hybrid world of magic and science to repair the probe and discover the link between Adelpha and Earth.
Serving as a remake of the classic Outcast game, Outcast - Second Contact brings the 1999 groundbreaking 3D open world action-adventure into the modern age, with up to date graphics in a reworked universe, with new dynamic combat and more in over 50 hours of sheer adventure.
Meta: Outcast - Second Contact thrusts a classic, groundbreaking game into the modern era, boasting new graphics and more for the action-adventure game.

Outcast (not to be confused with Red Barrels' horror series Outlast, but watch me go and mistype that at least once here) originally released in 1999. It featured an ambitious proto-open-world structure, and told the tale of the absurdly named Cutter Slade - a form...

THQ Nordic don’t reveal any firm plans for Outcast, but I ima...

Here's a bit of a treat for those with a hankering for some nostalgia-tweaking space exploration; Outcast - Second Contact is currently free to download on the Humble Store. Outcast - Second Contact, for those unfamiliar, was released last year, and is developer Appeal's tastefully modernised remake of its 1999 cult classic sci-fi action-adventure Outcast. Both tell the tale of the preposterously named Cutter Slade, a US Navy Seal sent through a black hole to retrieve a probe from an alien world...
