When THQ Nordic acquired the rights to the cult-classic open-world action adventure Outcast in 1999, we wondered if we would finally be able to look forward to a full-fledged sequel. Today we got our answer, with the official announcement of Outcast 2: A New Beginning.
Set twenty years after the events of the original, Outcast 2 will bring back Cutter Slade for a new (but not entirely different) adventure on the alien world of Adelpha. This time around, the lush but dangerous planet is under threat from ruthless corporations stripping its resources and enslaving its people, and it falls to Cutter to organize a resistance and cast off the invaders.
Like its predecessor, Outcast 2 will be a third-person action-adventure in an open world, and will tell a non-linear story featuring “dynamic plot progress based on players actions.” Fans of the first will also appreciate that it’s being developed by Belgium-based Appeal Studios, the creator of the original Outcast and the 2017 remake, Outcast: Second Contact.
