Outcast 2: A New Beggining It was one of the big surprises at the THQ Nordic Showcase, held to commemorate the distributor’s tenth anniversary. It is the sequel to the cult classic released in 1999 (in 2017 it received a remake for PC and consoles) and its arrival will take place in PC, PS5 y Xbox Series X|S, although no details about its release date are yet known. The project has been in development for more than three years and is the responsibility of Appeal Studios, the team responsible for the original game that is currently part of the ranks of THQ Nordic.
The first details offered about the game point to a story set two decades after what happened in the first installment, in which the protagonist will once again be Cutter Slade. How could it be otherwise, we will put ourselves in his shoes again to explore a huge open world (more than 60 square kilometers), ally ourselves – or antagonize us – with different factions and face all kinds of native creatures from another planet.
Outcast: a classic with more than 20 years of history
The 1999 title created divisions of opinion due to its cryptic history, the harshness of its controls, and how confusing it was often to move forward. However, the passage of time allowed it to occupy that category of cult classic that we often use to define games that “are not for everyone”. In any case, there were many users who are fond of Appeal’s work, in which we discovered that finding signs of life on another planet may not have been such a good idea as humanity has always thought.
Outcast 2: A New Beginniing will be released on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. Title no release date yet.
