February 19, 2014 [OUTCAST] - Outcast HD-remake


Outcast will be rebooted as a HD-remake of the original 1999 game.
Franck Saur has announced to several websites that the team is busy porting the code of the original Outcast game to their Fresh3D engine. It won't be a voxel engine anymore. There are not many details known at this point, but it seems that the game will be an enhanced version of the original game featuring additional content and state of the art technology. It is not yet known on which platform(s) the title will be developed.
It is expected that a kickstarter campaign to fund the game will be started very soon with more details on the project.
Stay tuned!
