Outcast – Second Contact Debut Trailer Released; Delayed to Fall 2017
Today, publisher Bigben Interactive and developer Appeal Studio released the debut trailer for Outcast: Second Contact. In addition to releasing the debut trailer, the pair also announced the game, which was originally supposed to launch this month, has been delayed to the Fall.
For those that don’t know: Outcast: Second Contact is the full remake of the 1999 PC action adventure game Outcast, released by the same studio. At the time of its release, Outcast was critically acclaimed and quite successful. In 2001, developer Appeal developed a sequel, called Outcast II: The Lost Paradise, which never was finished or released due to bankruptcy issues. In 2014, Appeal required the franchise rights and took to Kickstarter looking for funds to remake the first game. The Kickstarter was unsuccessful. However, Appeal went on to strike a deal with publisher Bigben Interactive, and the remake was greenlighted.
Outcast: Second Contact is in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Below, you can find an overview of the game via Bigben and the new debut trailer:
The Ulukaï is back!
In the near future, humanity has discovered it is not alone in the universe, or rather universes. Alas, first contact with intelligent beings turns disastrous when a probe sent by the US government is destroyed by the natives of a world called Adelpha. The incident creates an energy cataclysm which threatens to destroy the Earth. You are Cutter Slade, a former elite soldier sent on a mission to Adelpha to prevent this catastrophe…
Welcomed by natives as the “Ulukai” – a messiah of an ancient prophecy – you learn that to save Earth, you must save Adelpha: the destiny of both worlds is in your hands.
