Nine Dots Studios’ ambitious open world RPG Outward is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Unlike your typical medieval fantasy titles, Outward is all about pure grit and effort as you conquer any challenges thrown at you. Which usually results in a lot of dying.
Along with survival elements, which see players managing their stamina and staying vigilant while camping, Outward employs a complex magic system. It’s all about crafting the right seals and preparing your magic beforehand as opposed to instantly casting spells. There’s also split-screen co-op, which allows two players to venture into the world together.
So you could battle enemies together, manage different inventories, and even watch over the other person at camp while they recover. Outward doesn’t boast the most impressive visuals, but its gameplay does provide a large amount of choice. Check out the launch trailer below and see if it scratches your own fantasy RPG itch.
