About

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.

Key Features

  • Survive in the wilds as you explore a vast and harsh land
  • Play solo or cooperatively, split-screen locally or online.
  • Ritualistic, step-by-step approach to spellcasting.
  • Constant auto-saving means you must live with your decisions.
  • Encounter dynamic defeat scenarios.
  • A unique experience with every playthrough.
