Outcast 2 – A New Beginning: Cutter Slade returns in the action-adventure


Outcast from 1999 officially continues with Outcast 2 – A New Beginning for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. A release date was not mentioned by the publisher THQ Nordic. The game is being developed by Appeal Studios from Belgium. Ten people work in the studio who were already involved in the first part, including the art director and the composer. Production began at the end of 2018. The project is currently in the alpha phase.

Outcast 2 – A New Beginning will again thematically deal with the exploitation and destruction of an alien world. Cutter Slade, the main character from the predecessor (voice actor is still unclear; original: Manfred Lehmann), will again pay a visit to the planet Adelpha. The game is again an action-adventure from the pursuer’s perspective for single players based on Unreal Engine 4. The developers think that you don’t have to know the predecessor.

THQ Nordic: “The friendly invader hunter from the neighborhood is back. (…) Twenty years after the events of the first game, Adelpha is now threatened by invaders: a nefarious robot army is exploiting the planet, enslaving its inhabitants and even going over Corpses. Cutter’s mission is clear: He must organize a resistance, save the residents and give the invaders a powerful (…) kick! “

The game world will be larger than its predecessor and should be much more vertical, which is why Cutter Slade can use a jetpack. In combat, he uses a modular weapon system that is supposed to provide a lot of variety. The talent system is supposed to enable “magical superpowers” if you want to. But exploration should also continue to play a major role. For example, you will find out where the women and children have gone, who disappeared without a trace in the first part. In general, the story should not be shaped by black and white thinking.
