Stutter is gone in Outcast

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.

Our videos of Outcast

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.

PGW 2017 report

As the big rush due to our Xbox One X coverage is over, we can finally offer some off-screen videos of game demos captured at Paris Games Week last week. While the most awaited titles like Monster Hunter World, The Crew 2, NFS Payback or Dragon Ball FighterZ did not offer new builds compared to those already presented at E3 or Gamescom, some other games, also very anticipated, could unfortunately not be filmed for various reasons. We still brought you back a few videos, but they're clearly not high profile titles.

GC: Outcast gameplay

Outcast - Second Contact is real, and we got to play and capture it as seen in the following video. The most nostalgic among us will probably cry about the lack of visible voxels, but this is clearly still the good old Outcast, for better or worse.
