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.
