Appeal Studios and THQ Nordic have officially announced the upcoming release of Outcast – A New Beginning, an open-world action-adventure game coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
THQ Nordic have developed and published an impressive list of strong titles including Darksiders, Alone in the Dark, Titan Quest and Remnant 2, and this new open-world action-adventure looks like it might deliver the same expansive exploration and guerrilla warfare that made the original 1999 title a cult classic.
Ex-Navy SEAL Leads Talan Uprising for Control
In Outcast – A New Beginning, players take on the role of Cutter Slade, an ex-Navy SEAL who uses guerrilla tactics to weaken enemy bases and lead the native Talan people in an uprising to regain control of their planet, Adelpha. Slade utilizes weapons crafted from salvaged alien technology while coordinating attacks on the occupying forces.
Vast Open World Offers True Freedom of Exploration
A standout feature of the original Outcast returns in this sequel – the massive, open game world with no boundaries.
This creates limitless opportunities for players to explore hidden temples, encounter unusual wildlife, and uncover secrets at their own pace. Appeal Studios has enhanced the visuals and performance to take full advantage of modern hardware while retaining the spirit of the original.
Customizable Jetpack and Weapons Add Strategic Depth
Cutter navigates the expansive landscape of Adelpha using his versatile jetpack which features upgradeable modules such as boosters, grappling hooks, and more.
Players can customize their playstyle by mixing and matching jetpack modules along with crafting signature weapons using different alien technology. This allows players to strategize their approach to infiltrating enemy camps through stealth or more aggressive assaults.
