Outcast 2: A New Beginning is in the development of the Belgian Appeal Studios, the original creators of the Outcast series, which has received no new title for over a decade. Outcast 2 will take place on the Adelpha planet like the first game and the player in 20 years will follow the footsteps of Cutter Slade. Unlike the original Outcast, this will be a fresh start, an open-world game for third parties that allows exploration, an alien setting, and a story. Just like the first Outcast game, the game will take place on a planet called Adelphi, and players will return to Slade’s position 20 years later.
After the rise of almighty Yod, he returns to find the Talens enslaving the world, robbing it of its natural resources, and interweaving his own past with invading robots. Twenty years after the events of the original, Outcast 2 is bringing Cutter Slade back to Adelaide for a new but not so different adventure. After 20 years since the award-winning action-adventure outcast revolutionized the genre of nonlinear open-world games, Cutters returns to the spectacular alien planet in yet another open-world action-adventure.
The long-awaited sequel to their classic Outcast is set to be released on Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 5, and PC. A New Beginning describes THQ Nordic Appeal Studios as an open-world action-adventure with a non-linear storyline in which players’ actions and decisions can alter the story’s ends. The game is currently being developed for PC, PS5, and Xbox.
Although we do not have a release date, THQ Nordic has told us that Outcast 2 is approaching the end of its pre-alpha development phase, which is a very good sign of what we will see from the sequel. Although we do not yet have a release date, The Nordic has informed us that the sequel to the classic Outcast is nearing the end of the early development phase.
Appeal Studios comes from Belgium, the developers of the original game and its remakes Outcast 2. Although there is not much information about the game yet, we know that the development is done by the same studio, the same team behind the first game. It will be interesting to see if the developers will continue the story of the original outcast and make the story more accessible to newcomers.
A New Beginning is a sequel to the Open World PC adventure from 1999 with state-of-the-art technology and a non-linear narrative bringing back the former soldier-and-hero Cutter Slade. Announced at the THQ Nordic 10th Anniversary Digital Showcase, the game received two trailers showing the beautiful world of Adelpha and insight into battle mechanics. A look behind the scenes of Outcast 2 during the THQ Nordic Livestream gave a brief insight into the gameplay and some insights into the development of the games. This short insight is a short presentation of the game in development.
Outcast, released in 1999, was one of the first action-adventure genres to use an open 3D world and won many awards at the time. It is now known as a cult classic and a remake of Outcast: Second Contact was published in 2017. The original Outcast, originally released in 1998, is considered a cult classic and is considered by many to be one of the first open-world games of its kind.
Although a remake of the first game was released in 2017, fans of the original outcast never received a true sequel to the original game. However, when THQ Nordic in 1999 acquired the rights to the iconic open-world action-adventure Outcast, we wondered if we would ever look forward to a full-fledged sequel. During THQ’s 10th Anniversary Showcase live stream, they revealed the long-awaited sequel to their classic Outcast.
The appeal of the studio is to create a huge sci-fi world in which the editors venture into a non-linear narrative form of player action. The sequel to the release of Outcast 20 years ago will be an action-adventure in which we act twenty years after the events of the original. The first details were offered and it was pointed out that the story would take place two decades after the events in the 1999 cult classic and that the protagonist would be the cutter Slade.
In this sequel, the protagonist of the first game, Cutter Slade, has a goal that has changed: to protect Adelpha and his inhabitants. The player will meet Talan, a female child who is not an outcast. Cutter Slade must organize resistance to save the kidnapped Talan and free the world from the “Adelpha robot invaders” who enslave the natives, but not as it seems. Outcast 2 is a third-person shooter game with a modular and weapon-oriented interface. It is a classic open-world role-playing game that takes players into the post-apocalyptic world of Magalan that is offered by the creators of Gothic Rising.
The Third Person Open World game is designed to bring the combat, movement, graphics, and speed we expect with modern hardware. Cutters Slade, the original Navy SEAL hero from the game, has a jetpack that allows him to jump, slip and slide to move in the open world.
The original team behind the original Outcast has come together to create a fascinating world filled with dangerous creatures and home to the ancient culture of the Talan peoples whose destiny is tied to Earth after the events of the first game. It’s twenty years since the first games, and the time between Cutter and Slade has passed since they got stuck trying to teleport back to Earth. As a cutter, your job is to form a resistance and fight the invaders in a lush tropical world.
