Developer Nine Dots and publisher Deep Silver have announced today the release date for their upcoming survival RPG Outward, which will be 26th March 2019 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Steam. The announcement is also accompanied by a trailer highlighting “the game’s focus on challenge, immersion and fulfilment.” Check it out below along with more info about the game.
Outward is an open-world fantasy adventure game featuring deep simulation and immersion. In it, players will experience an entirely new kind of RPG, where they play the role of a true inhabitant of a sprawling world, requiring biological maintenance and self-preservation against a harsh, uncaring environment. These simulation aspects also extend to the game’s representation of magic as an intricate web of rituals required to evoke supernatural powers. The game also packs a surprising feature: two-player local and online multiplayer, with split-screen (including online split-screen). This feature allows two friends to share a journey knowing they have at least one ally at their side and offers unique opportunities for streaming and strategy.
Today’s trailer showcases the rich fantasy world and the various obstacles the player’s avatar will have to face in this mystical environment. As a regular human being, players will create their own destiny against a variety of dangers both magical and mundane. Exposure to the elements is just as likely to kill the player as the monsters that roam the world. To survive, they will have to grow and master the game’s complex weapons, traps, and magic.
