Outward is an adventurer life sim: an open world RPG that focus on immersion rather than empowerment. The player isn't a the godsent hero from a prophecy: he's an adventurer, a traveler, an explorer. And most importantly, he's vulnerable. The game breaks many conventions to offer a new type of experience, with the intent to create a new RPG sub-genre. The cherry on top: it can be played coop.
