Ray Stevenson portrays D.C., a retired Royal Marine Commando who became an alchoholic. Richard Brake portrays Prior, an ex-Marine who works with D.C. Julian Wadham played Hunt, a mysterious man who offers D.C. money to help him on his journey to find "minerals" in No Man's Land.
In a seedy bar in a town ravaged by war, mysterious businessman Hunt hires ex-marine D.C. to assemble a crack team of ex-soldiers to protect him on a dangerous journey into no-man's land. To this gang of hardened warriors, battle-worn veterans and borderline criminals killing is just a job - and one they enjoy. Their mission - to scope out an old military bunker. It should be easy - 48 hours at the most. Lots of cash for little risk, or so he says. Once at the outpost, the men make a horrific discovery that turns their mission on its head - the scene of a bloody and gruesome series of experiments, carried out by the Nazis on their own soldiers during WWII. Amid the carnage, they find something even more disturbing - someone who's still alive. As war rages above ground, and a mysterious enemy emerges from the darkness below, D.C. and his men find themselves trapped in a claustrophobic and terrifying scenario. Their mission is no longer one of safe-guarding - it's one of survival. Together they must discover why Hunt has brought them to the outpost - and what it is that's killing them off, one by one.
- "Outpost" had a budget of £200,000 ($281,540 U.S. dollars).
- When DC pulls out the pistol from its holder in the generator chamber, its sound is identical to Return to Castle Wolfenstein when the player swaps weapons. Similarly, when the soldiers emerge from the truck, the slamming noise is the same as in RTCW when the player attempts to open a locked wooden door.
