Outward delivers an immersive RPG experience coupled with survival gameplay, offering a deeply-rewarding challenge for the most avid gamers. No remarkable journey is achieved without great effort. Outward is an open-world RPG where the cold of the night or an infected wound can be as dangerous as a predator lurking in the dark. What the game does offer is survival mechanics in an open-ended RPG world, where you are free to succeed or fail. If you want to follow quest markers, this is the worst choice you could make. If you want to be an action hero, there are better choices. If you want to run away from enemies, this is a good choice. Explore the vast world of Aurai, embark on memorable adventures alone or with your friends. The amount of fresh ideas, innovative mechanics and interwoven systems make this a survival RPG experience like no other. A punishingly difficult game that will reward those who put in patience and disparage fast play. I can heartily recommend if you are a fan of "old school" RPGs.
