open Outcast should become a free unofficial successor of the Action-Adventure Outcast (by Appeal). Therefore we are creating a total conversion of Crysis Wars.

Story Teaser

Cutter has departed, and everything is far from perfect on Adelpha.Cutter Slade

Without their godlike leader in the form of Kazar, and liberated from the oppression they faced under Fae Rhan, the talans attempt to organise their own society - this doesn't happen without conflict, and with Sidestep 2 launched, the situation can only get worse. On top of that, unseen, another puppetmaster pulls the strings.

Only one man can handle this: the Ulukai himself! Cutter will step into the String Tunnelling Device once again, and discover the truth behind an ancient mystery...

A short summary what happened so far:

  • OpenOutcast started as a total conversion mod for Crysis Wars (CryEngine 2)
  • Crytek released the CryEngine Free SDK, allowing smaller teams to develop entire games using the latest CryEngine technology (CryEngine 3)
  • We decided to continue the development using that engine as it would allow us to release a standalone game rather than staying a mod
  • In order to reflect this change, the project was renamed to Outcast: Legacy of the Yods
  • The plan was to port over the Oasis 1.1 demo, redesign the levels and add more features such as combat and in general prepare the framework in which the whole game could be developed
  • At the end of this process, we would release a standalone demo version and launch an extensive PR and application campaign to mass enough talent to finish the content, as the final regions, more assets, ...

Now we are announcing the closed beta of this demo. More information about the application process can be found HERE.

After its release, there will be a new project page on IndieDB.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Tracking this game...

But dude, if it indeed works with crysis wars trial or demo or whatever, then why dont u intergate the files from the demo version into this game, so u can create a free, standalone, indie game showcasing the power of CryEngine(DEMO)?

Not sure if it's possible, let alone legal ;)
I am sure crytek won't be happy with such actions.

I am not a specialist but the way I understand it game companies like crytek allow modders to use their engine for free because that makes their game/engine poplar and prolongs the life of their product. Hacking around and make it look less like a mod won't make crytek happy.

anyway, installing crysis is not such a huge effort. I think we are fine as a mod.
