Outward 2 Announced for PC and Consoles

Outward 2 is following in its predecessor’s footsteps by offering a challenging open world, as well as local and online co-op.

Developer and publisher Nine Dots Studio has unveiled a sequel to its co-op open-world RPG Outward. Appropriately titled Outward 2, the game was announced with a new trailer, which you can check out below.

Among the features of Outward 2, alongside a general improvement to visuals when compared to the original Outward, will be more content than before, including new non-combat encounters, impactful day/night cycles and weather conditions, and even more active NPCs.

The game will also have improved character creation tools, as well as a complete overhaul to progression that brings with it a new exercise tree and gives players tasks to help unlock new improvements and abilities. The combat system is also set to be improved, with more responsive attacks, as well as the addition of dual wielding.

Outward 2 doesn’t yet have a release date, but the game does have a Steam page, which reveals that it will support single-player, as well as online and split-screen co-op. It’s in development for PC and consoles.
