Outpost 2

Outpost 2 PC CD earth is dead world human race survival new planet strategy game 






Earth is a dead world. The survivalists of the human race drifted for nearly a century, suspended in cryogenic sleep. Finally, as resources dwindled and no habitable planet was located, the computers revived a select few to make decisions on the possibilities of colonization of less than Earth-perfect worlds. Faced with life-or-death choices, the crew decided on a stark, hostile and forbidding world they dubbed as New Terra.

The colony, known originally as Outpost, was home to a couple of hundred colonists, all that remained of Earth's great civilizations. Eventually, belying the harsh conditions, the outpost became know as Eden. Matters grew worse as the humans split into two factions -- a group that wanted to conquer New Terra and its environment via the expedient of terraforming and a second splinter group, Plymouth, interested only in adapting to the environment and conditions, leaving the planet intact.

Reconciliation between the groups, although tried on several occasions, failed. The satellite link between the two colonies was irrevocably extinguished. The Eden colonists went ahead with plans for terraforming while those at Plymouth prepared to defend their rights on New Terra. Neither group was prepared for the astonishing and cataclysmic geological upheaval about to tear their world apart.

Outpost 2: Divided Destiny is a real-time strategy, resource management game with 24 unique missions, each requiring specific strategies and tactics. You command either of the two factions with gameplay differing dependent upon which you choose. Combat is real-time, environmental conditions and dangers change based on the planet's change from day to night and survival is contingent upon how well you manage resources, construct useful buildings, conduct research, prepare defenses or create attack forces and handle morale.

More than 140 vehicles and buildings, 60,000 frames of animation and a wide array of natural disasters such as volcanoes, meteor showers and more await you in this survivalist adventure. Multi-player action for up to six players is supported via LAN or Internet and two through modem or serial connections. Scenario types of multi-player action include Last One Standing (king of the hill), Midas (fixed amount of time), Resource Race (predetermined amount of common and rare metals as a target), Space Race (first to construct a spaceship) and Land Rush (random deployment of bases with the last two surviving colonies finishing the game in Last One Standing mode).

Outpost 2 offers two main types of games: campaign and colony. The campaign game is a series of pre-designed missions that highlight all the disasters and problems inherent in running a colony and defending its style of existence. The colony game is a freestyle type of game in which you build a colony with no preset conditions and without the threat of the Blight found in the mission scenarios. Three levels of difficulty are available in either method along with the choice of playing either side.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
