GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

Outcast: Second Contact clearly feels dated in many respects, but it has managed to keep that nice retro flavor older gamers are so fond of. Still, the game came out with a series of issues on PC, one of them being the severe stutter which was supposedly caused by the absence of exclusive fullscreen mode. This has been addressed successfully in the latest patch, along with a good number of other things. Patch details and a short homemade video are inside.

Patch notes


• Controls have been enhanced and inertia of movement lowered.
• Constraints on jumping have been relaxed in some areas to avoid the occurrence of "invisible walls".
• The responsiveness of jumps has been improved.
• Slight adjustments to jumping behaviour when in air.
• The triggering of dodge rolls has been adjusted in order to prevent interference with sprinting.
• The contents of ammo boxes have been rebalanced.
• A rare bug that could occur when purchasing the Magwa in Shamazaar has been fixed.
• Fixed a bug that caused some characters (for example Zokrim) to get stuck in bodies of water, and sometimes blocking progression.
• A display issue that caused Naarn to not properly display in some instances has been fixed.
• Added a "vibrant colors" graphic mode. (Thanks to Dmity Andreev for this feature)
• Implemented true full screen mode (as opposed to the default borderless windowed full screen) as an option in order to alleviate stuttering that appeared on some PC configurations.
• A target frame rate option has been added.
• Ultra-widescreen support (21:9) has been implemented.
• Implemented automatic surround sound support, in cases where adequate hardware is detected.
• Audio options with separate volume controls have been added to the options menu.
• The audio mixing has been rebalanced.
• Snowfall animation at high frame rates has been improved.
• CPU usage has been optimized to allow for better frame rate when multiple characters appear on screen.
• Multiple crash fixes, in particular when using Daokas, have been implemented.

They're also working on a console patch. Audio volume control and jump responsiveness are nice to see adressed.

Never played the original but bought it instantly, haven't played it much yet, was waiting for some first patches.
The music is really great in this I must say, loving it ;)
I'm glad they fixed the surround audio - the stereo only was horrible to listen to :/
And they didn't forget about us UWD fanatics with 21:9, nice.

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The Dualshock 2 and 3 (PS2 and PS3) had analog face buttons (Triangle, Circle, Cross, Square), but DS4 went back to digital buttons. I don't think many games used the functionality. MGS2 used for aim (28 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth It's probably mostly first party games, which is sorta the norm with features like that. (39 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I know some X1 games supports this, like Forza 5 where the triggers gives feedback on your tires. don't really remember many other games. perhaps some feedback on firing a gun in some shooter (41 minutes ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts We need more info and people's playing with the DualSense to say what the experiences was like to know if that's what it does. I love rumble, so this could be great. (2 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts This could be really great, as if you're playing a F1 racing game, you would feel the smooth circuit. While when playing a Rally racing game, you would feel the bumps in the road. (2 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts I believe it's something similar, but more advanced. If it's what I'm imagining, it will be great and will make you "feel" the difference between shooting a bow and a gun. Hence the name "DualSense". (2 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts you go into controlled breath mode, where it zooms in and you can more accurately take a shot. Same for Racing games where the harder you press R2/RT, the faster the car goes. (2 Hours ago)
