Nine Dots Studio and Deep Silver have announced the release date for their open world sandbox RPG Outward.
The game set to launch on March 26th, 2019 for Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Outward‘s primary focus is on immersion. Players control an ordinary person living in the high fantasy world of Aurai, and you’ll need to use your wits to overcome magical beings and fantastical creatures in combat.
Outward also has a few survival elements, with hazardous environments that will dictate the sort of tactics and gear you might have to use in any given area. You can find a new trailer for the game above.
Here’s a rundown of 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 local 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 strategy.
