THQ Nordic Scoops Up Rights to PC Classic Outcast

Outcast

THQ Nordic has swept up yet another forgotten IP via its acquisition of the classic action-adventure game, Outcast.

For anyone unfamiliar with the 1999 science-fiction title, players took control of Cutter Slade, an orange shirt and visor-wearing adventurer. Outcast sent players on a mission to protect Earth, explore an alien planet, and protect three scientists.

A remake of the original title was released in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Since its rebrand in 2016, Nordic’s goal of sweeping up dozens of classic games has been more than successful. So far, Time Splitters, Darksiders, Alone in the Dark, and Saints Row are just a few of the properties in Nordic’s arsenal.

For more news on what THQ Nordic plans to do with its new IP, keep up with OnlySP on  FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
