Outcast: Second Contact launched on November 14, 2017 and now we've received an exhilarating launch trailer to go with it. There are a lot of characters, explosions, and gorgeous visuals that manage to maintain their old-school feel. The game looks great on Xbox One even though there aren't any specific Xbox One X enhancements.
The original Outcast is memorable, having introduced several innovations surrounding an open-world environment. The title managed to capture that sense of wonder you get when exploring a new world due to its mesmerizing setting. Few other titles have been able to replicate that, and just like the Stargate series, going through the circular gates to new regions never gets old.
Outcast: Second Contact puts you in the role of a human named Cutter Slade, an American Navy SEAL alone on an unknown planet, without equipment, trace of his companions, or an idea of his plan. In order to locate his team, he needs to help the locals. While immersing himself in their alien civilization and culture, Cutter will have to negotiate with affluent merchants, rally rebel forces, and fight a tyrant in hostile territory. Outcast: Second Contact is available from the Microsoft Store, priced at $39.99 on Xbox One.
