Outward is a Role Playing Game developed by ‘Nine Dots studio‘ and published by ‘Prime Matter‘. Outward its said to be coming out the 17th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5. Outward was already released in 2019 on previous generation consoles and stuff but seems like no one cared. Next Generation is it’s chance to do better. X35 Earthwalker will speak. Let’s take a look.
Outward set in the “dazzling yet deadly” world of Aurai. This world isn’t all safe and nice. Sure there are some nice views and beautiful sights but there be danger around this world. But more on that danger later. You are basically an adventurer. You are traversing and exploring these crazy lands. So head out on expeditions, complete missions (off course), make discoveries like dungeons and even reach cities. There’s quite a bit of exploring to do. So get to it.
So basically you play as… well here’s what the website says, “You play an adventurer, traveler and explorer.” You’re an ordinary character. Nothing special, no chosen one, no super powers, you’re not a demi god or even a fully trained soldier. So no super strength for you. You have to rely on your mind. You’ll need to be smart and strategic in order to survive. Not just that, there’s also your basic needs like eating, drinking and even getting enough sleep. So yeah, take care of that. Outward be playing games there. We also heard that there’s a so called “ritualistic, step by step approach to spell casting.” We would like to see how this works.
We checked out some Outward gameplay and it’s not what we expected for the most part. We definitely love that Outward has co-operative play and even better SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP. Feels good to yell that while typing. This means grab your friends, family or a complete stranger without their consent and go on an adventure together. You must watch out for the many enemies and creatures that come straight from a fantasy book but not as cool. There’s diseases to avoid. Infectious ones. Players must wield and use combat and also magic. Also, there’s said to be rivals.
Overall Outward seems like it can be a good game. We aren’t impresses at all yet. We need to see more of Outward. We like that the game has a form of constant auto save to make sure players are stuck with the actions and decisions they take or make. There’s what’s called, “Encounter dynamic defeat scenarios”. Interesting. The developers ‘Nine Dots studio’ have done an alright job so far. We need things to be more dynamic. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to wait and hear what this game accomplishes. Now Outward may have fantasy creatures and dungeons but they are too simple for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
