GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

Outcast - Second Contact was released yesterday and we have a few videos of this remake to show you. We'll start with the PC version, which suffers from pretty annoying stuttering issues on our rig (i7 6700K @ 4.5 GHz, 16 Go RAM, Windows 10, Nvidia GTX 1080 Founder's Edition MSI), whatever the resolution or graphics settings we choose. The PS4 Pro version seems to be ok in that regard, but runs at 30 fps. As for the game itself, although the remake is actually pretty well done, gameplay hasn't aged well and it will mostly appeal to nostalgic players who can accept the old approach to open world and action games of the late ninteties.

Thanks for this. Very excited for the game, sure it is nearly 20 years old, but it was pioneering when it first released and has one of the best OSTs out of any games. Anyway, I will take it for what it is...For its time, was much better in my opinion than the Mass Effect games, it had an actual sense of exploration and an intruiging world. I am sure it feels dated now, but its a nice surprise that this got made. Very much underappreciated at the time and in my opinon it was much more impressive than many more well known games.

Oh god, I remember buying this when it first came out and running it on my Pentium II 333Mhz & 128MB Ram and a completely useless & unused 3DFX Voodoo II, because it didn't use 3D cards but rendered the entire game with voxels on the CPU only!!

I'm such an old fart.

Had a Voodoo 3 and a Celeron. I feel the pain.
It was my first PC game. The music and sound design alone amazed me.

I was stunned by this game and it´s water "physics", when I first tried it on my Celeron calculator. It looks like they recreated the complete experience even with the clumsy performance on PC.

You should try with Nvidia last drivers 388,31, maybe the stuttering is gone.

I will, but I don't think it was the drivers. To me, it's really the game. We'll see. :)
