Outcast: Second Contact, the HD remake of the cult 1999 open-world title, will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come March 2017.

Set in the near future, Outcast: Second Contact takes players to the parallel world of Adelpha, where an attack on a US probe causes a distortion of space-time and threatens to destroy both Adelpha and Earth.

Protagonist Cutter Slade, a former Special Forces operative, travels to the landscapes of planet Adelpha in an attempt to prevent the catastrophe and save the two worlds. Along the way, the and the player will uncover many things that will “even surprise fans of the original.” Apparently, Second Contact will feature additional new content that was not present in the original Outcast.

March 2017 may be a long way away, but Outcast: Second Contact will be shown for the first time during Gamescom 2016, starting August 17.
