Deep Silver's 'Outward' brings an adventurous open world to Xbox One on February 12

Publisher Deep Silver unveiled its latest game today, an open-world RPG called "Outward." Coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 12, 2019, Outward promises to subvert the usual trope of making players "the chosen one" in favor of placing you in the shoes of a simple wanderer. And while details are still a little light, the publisher offered an early peek at some of the epic combat and creatures you'll encounter with a brief trailer.

Deep Silver states:

Outward is an open world RPG that you play alone or with friends, either online or in splitscreen. It's more than just an open world RPG you can play coop though. You live the life of an adventurer, from his or her humble beginnings up until you become a hardened wanderer, whilst traversing incredible landscapes rich with diversity and life.

In a market full of grandiose epics, Outward sounds like it could be a breath of fresh air for open-world RPG fans. Outward isn't up for preorder just yet, but you can look for the game to hit consoles and PC on February 12.
