'Outward' (ALL) The Soroboreans DLC Gets Dated - Trailer

by Rainier on June 2, 2020 @ 12:07 a.m. PDT

Outward is an open-world action RPG in which 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.

While a level of failure is almost guaranteed, failing is merely another spin on the player's personal epic story! A unique magical system, thrilling combat, and survival in a world full of dangers are key elements of this upcoming fantasy RPG, and through each player's unique journey all of this will be learned.

The life of an adventurer isn't about becoming all powerful. It's about outsmarting your enemies and planning ahead to overcome your challenges. Lay traps, use special equipment, perform a magic ritual, bring your friends. Come up with a solution tailored to your problem instead of rushing headfirst into danger.

Outward is 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.

While bandits and monsters are serious threats, you still need to eat, drink and sleep to survive. You need to set up your camp to get through the night and sometimes, the cold weather or an infectious disease might be the gravest danger you face.

Casting spells shouldn’t be as simple as pressing a button. To cast spells in Outward, you have to know the steps to the ritual and perform them in order yourself. For instance, to throw a fireball, you must use a firestone to create a fire sigil, then create a spark while standing in the middle of the magic circle to create the fiery projectile.

Launched early 2019, Outward's popularity grew substantially but that wasn’t the end of this adventure. It was just the start. Allow yourself to be immersed in Aurai once again and see what’s new.

You have battled your way through the landscape, dedicated yourself to your favourite faction and bounced back from defeat countless time. Allow yourself to be immersed in Aurai once again and see what’s coming in the new, hard hitting DLC for Outward, “The Soroboreans”.

Filled to the brim with new content that will add a breath of fresh air to your game, “The Soroboreans” DLC will get you worried about a lot more than starving to death, dehydration, losing your backpack and… well everything else!

From New Skills, Enchantments, New weapon type (The Gauntlets) to terrifying Dungeons and blood thirsty creatures, you’re going to be busy for a while in the world of Aurai!

  • Corruption: The level of corruption affects you in different ways and if you can’t shake it you could meet an untimely end. The world just got a whole lot scarier!
  • Enchantments: Weapons, trinkets and armors will now be able to be changed with the new enchanting system!
  • New Skill Trees and Status Effects: 2 new skill trees (The Hex Mage and The Speedster) and reality twisting status effects for your character! That can completely change your gameplay!
  • New Weapon Type (The Gauntlets): Deliver a flurry of punches to your enemies and put them firmly back in their place!
  • Dungeons: Great rewards await those who venture forth within the depths of these deadly, mysterious and interconnected dungeons!

The Soroboreans DLC will be available for PC on June 16, 2020, and shortly afterwards for PS4 & Xbox One on July 7, 2020 at $19.99/EUR 19.99/GBP 16.99.

Key Features:

  • Survive in the wilds as you explore the land
  • Play solo or cooperatively, locally or online
  • Play smart or die: you play an adventurer, not a demigod
  • Constant auto-saving means there’s no turning back. You have to put yourself in the character’s shoes and think about the situation rather than just try things and reload every now and then.
  • Dynamic defeat scenarios that reacts to your context. Losing a fight against a group of bandits won't simply have you looking at a game over screen. Instead, you might wake up to find yourself held for ransom, or being dragged into the woods and left for dead after they looted your belongings. Failure is part of life and defeat is part of the journey for any adventurer.
  • Every new playthrough offers something different. You can't be good at everything and help everyone. By replaying the game, you can play a different character, join a different faction with its own storyline, gain access to different skills and items.As a bonus, you keep a little something from your previous completed story for your next game via the Legacy system.

Outward is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC for $39.99.
