'Outward' Definitive Edition Comes To PS5, Xbox Series X|S & PC Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on May 6, 2022 @ 4:00 p.m. PDT

Outward is an open-world action RPG in which you play an adventurer, traveler, and explorer.

Most importantly, you are vulnerable, equipped with as much power as your adversaries. Survive through wild, brutal lands teeming with enemies, obstacles, and fantasy creatures, using combat and magic to overcome both the harsh environment and the rivals in your way.

While a level of failure is almost guaranteed, failing is merely another spin on the player's personal epic story! A unique magical system, thrilling combat, and survival in a world full of dangers are key elements of this upcoming fantasy RPG, and through each player's unique journey all of this will be learned.

The life of an adventurer isn't about becoming all powerful. It's about outsmarting your enemies and planning ahead to overcome your challenges. Lay traps, use special equipment, perform a magic ritual, bring your friends. Come up with a solution tailored to your problem instead of rushing headfirst into danger.

Outward is playable alone or with friends, either online or in split-screen co-op. Start from humble beginnings and build your way up until you become a hardened wanderer.  Traverse incredible landscapes rich with diversity and life, progressing your skills with each dynamic quest.

While bandits and monsters are serious threats, you still need to eat, drink and sleep to survive. You need to set up your camp to get through the night and sometimes, the cold weather or an infectious disease might be the gravest danger you face.

Casting spells shouldn’t be as simple as pressing a button. To cast spells in Outward, you have to know the steps to the ritual and perform them in order yourself. For instance, to throw a fireball, you must use a firestone to create a fire sigil, then create a spark while standing in the middle of the magic circle to create the fiery projectile.

Outward is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on May 17, 2022 as Outward: Definitive Edition, which will also be available for PC customers at launch.

Along with the base game, Outward: Definitive Edition will contain two DLCs, "The Three Brothers" and "The Soroboreans," along with new content and numerous quality of life updates and balancing adjustments.

Seasoned adventurers will face new challenges in the Definitive Edition of Outward in the form of new unique encounters in dungeons, new defeat scenarios, and some new diseases, too. Players can also look forward to a raft of updates improving their journey through Aurai.

For example, they will be able to access their stash while visiting a friend’s world and enchanting will be less finicky. Additionally, there will be totem workshops in every region.

Crafting will be more accessible as well, and making the world of Outward feel more cohesive, corruption hazards (that were previously DLC exclusive) will spread throughout the game. There are, of course, many other changes and challenges for experienced players to sink their teeth into with Outward: Definitive Edition.

Players who already own the Outward base game and the DLC "The Three Brothers" can redeem a free copy of the Definitive Edition. For those who didn’t set foot into the world of Aurai yet: now would be the perfect time to explore the lands, so lace your boots and grab your backpacks, adventurers.

Key Features:

  • Survive in the wilds as you explore the land
  • Play solo or cooperatively, locally or online
  • Play smart or die: you play an adventurer, not a demigod
  • Constant auto-saving means there’s no turning back. You have to put yourself in the character’s shoes and think about the situation rather than just try things and reload every now and then.
  • Dynamic defeat scenarios that reacts to your context. Losing a fight against a group of bandits won't simply have you looking at a game over screen. Instead, you might wake up to find yourself held for ransom, or being dragged into the woods and left for dead after they looted your belongings. Failure is part of life and defeat is part of the journey for any adventurer.
  • Every new playthrough offers something different. You can't be good at everything and help everyone. By replaying the game, you can play a different character, join a different faction with its own storyline, gain access to different skills and items.As a bonus, you keep a little something from your previous completed story for your next game via the Legacy system.

Available for PS4, Xbox One and PC,Outward: Definitive Edition is coming soon to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on May 17, 2022.
