Outcast: Second Contact is a remake of the 1999 open-world action adventure Outcast, one of the first 3d game to offer non-linear gameplay, and free-roaming environments.

A fantastic and futuristic adventure, Outcast uses cutting-edge graphics and reworked controls for optimum immersion. As Cutter Slade, players can dive into the extraordinary landscapes of planet Adelpha in an attempt to pierce its secrets in order to prevent a terrible catastrophe... and along the way will uncover many things that will even surprise fans of the original.

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.


In Outcast - Second Contact the action takes place on Adelpha, a vast open world to explore and the cradle of an ancient alien civilization, the Talans. This video shows a bit of the gameplay in Outcast – Second Contact and the depth of its unique world, in which exploration is at the heart of adventure. Sacred portals, called Daokas, let you travel freely to the four corners of Adelpha from the very start of the game, as you search for your crewmates and the lost terrestrial probe.

To successfully complete your mission and the hundreds of side quests, you will need to gain the trust of the local inhabitants. Talk with the people, negotiate with rich merchants, save oppressed farmers, take on dangerous predators and even undergo a mystic ritual with the great Shamaz priests of Adelpha. Each Talan has a unique history and personality.

In Outcast – Second Contact, you explore a wide variety of regions and landscapes that range from the arid plains of Motazaar to the snow-covered lands of Ranzaar. The world of Adelpha is your playground.

Outcast has been hailed by critics and received numerous awards for the quality of its graphics and innovative gameplay, and is a milestone in the history of video games.

Outcast: Second Contact will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC in October 2017.
