Bigben Games has released a new gameplay video for the upcoming Outcast remake Outcast: Second Contact. The gameplay video focuses on the exploration mechanics included in the game.
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 game is the remake of the classic PC game Outcast that was released in 1999.
Players play as 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 players will find themselves embarked on an adventure on an unknown planet, with the future of two worlds in their hands.
The game is currently in development at Appeal Studio, the same studio that developed the original title that was released in 1999.
A sequel to the original game was already in development in the early 2000s and was titled Outcast 2: The Lost Paradise. The game was planned to be released in 2004 for Windows and PlayStation 2, but was put on hold due to financial struggles.
Outcast: Second Contact is expected to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
