Brutal Survival RPG Outward Has Definitive Edition This Month

2019’s surprising and unique survival RPG Outward has a definitive edition coming, complete with a few updates. Outward: Definitive Edition will be released on May 17, 2022 and will include The Soroboreans and The Three Brothers DLCs, as well as “completely new additions”.

Some of these completely new additions that I already know, like changes to combat, quality of life making some interactions more fun, adding DLC ​​features to the base game areas, and the like. There are also revisions to some game areas that were less developed and more defeat scenarios – from you can’t die in Outward. (Don’t worry… no less hardcore for all that.)

We really liked Outward for a number of reasons at launch, whether it’s useless map or the pure high stakes to lose on any match. For a small RPG developer trying out a lot of new ideas, Nine Dots Studio has been very successful in combining endurance-based action RPG combat with tough elements of exploration, survival, and crafting. That said, the extremely punitive nature of the external and sometimes rough mechanics turns some off.
