Outward: Definitive Edition launches for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in May

Prime Matter and Nine Dots Studio have announced that Outward: Definitive Edition will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam, Epic, GOG) in May. This re-release for the open-world survival RPG includes both "The Three Brothers" and "The Soroboreans" DLC.

Outward originally released in March 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, & PC, and has sold more than 1 million copies. In his review for the game's original PC release, Bryan stated at the time that "Outward is a series of good or even great ideas, but many just seem to be roughly implemented."

Outward, the open-world RPG where you explore the dangerous and vast world of Aurai alone or with your friend, is coming soon to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S for the first time as Outward: Definitive Edition. Available digitally for the first time on next-gen consoles, this Definitive Edition 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.
