Ah, the open-world action RPG - an incredibly popular genre that continues to thrive thanks to the massive success of titles like Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Witcher 3.
Now we have another one to look forward to, and that's Outward, a new title being developed by Nine Dots Studio and published by Deep Silver along with Maximum Games.
Outward is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC through physical and digital formats sometime in early 2019. Here's a rundown of the game from the publisher:
In Outward, 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.
Outward is an open-world RPG 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.
Here is the announcement trailer:
