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!

The game looks more and more fantastic every time i check back for any news! The move to Cryengine 3 is great as this means a hell of a lot more people will try and play open outcast.Really the job the devs did so far is nothing short of amazing.

Also i hope the new demo has improved movement/expression animations along some new visual tricks like heat distortion and dust being kicked up during running or walking...( i know i have mentioned them many times but i believe they are not so difficult to implement but will add a lot of immersion to a dessert environment!

Looks absolutely fantastic. Since there is a possibility of this expanding beyond a mod, are you considering charging money for it? And will there be legal issues with creating an indie game based on the Outcast IP, who owns that IP these days? I'm very excited to see a sequel to Outcast finally emerge, best of luck!

We're not planning to go commercial with the project, it's a free game from fans for everyone. Atari owns the IP on the Outcast universe, we already talked with some community staff and they saw no problem as long as we don't charge money for it.

Nice to hear some news about open Outcast.
I really hope that the release of the CryEngine 3 UDK will help you guys a lot.

The art style is spot on compared to the original. I tried the 1.0 demo a while ago. I must have missed the 1.1. Shall try that later this week.

Good work, I dont have crysis wars so I cant play this. A port of the entire mod to CE3 SDK will allow so much more and soo many more to play.

Actually you can play the current demos with the free Crysis Wars Trial, see Moddb.com
That's not the best solution though and we're looking forward to go standalone obviously.
