More info: On March 26, 2019, Look Outward for a Different Kind of RPG – December 20, 2018

If you’re an aficionado of hardcore RPGs, particularly ones that combine fantasy elements and realism, Outward is the game for you. Players will have to deal with such real-world concerns as hunger, disease and harsh elements, along with fantasy-based plunderers and monsters.

Your backpack will become indispensable, as the game’s inventory will not be limitless.

You can choose to travel light with a small backpack, picking up items you need along the way. This will permit you to maneuver relatively quickly.

Or you can be better prepared by stowing more equipment in a larger backpack. But the extra weight will leave you more vulnerable to attack.

You’ll have a map, but it won’t reveal your position. You’ll need to determine this by using your compass and making note of your surroundings within the four distinct regions of Aurai.

Outward is scheduled for release on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows (Steam) on March 26, 2019.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
