Release Date and New Trailer Revealed for Open World Fantasy Outward

Hard-core, survival and open world is a bold yet fitting combination for a fantasy RPG, and Developer Nine Dots are attempting this with their upcoming title Outward.

Alongside the announcement of a release date of the 26th March 2019, a new gameplay trailer has been released showcasing how the game will provide a more immersive and challenging experience than most of its genre.

Though there are magical and supernatural elements as you would expect from a fantasy RPG, you will also be expected to maintain your character and take their mortality very seriously – such as exposure to the elements, hunger, exhaustion and some rather tough enemies.

The devs are also boasting coop play – split screen and online – and “a unique experience with every playthrough”.

The game is sounding interesting for certain, and while basic looking in some ways (the combat in particular we will have to wait and see in practice) the trailer shows its potential for something quite unique.

Outward will be releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
