RPG Outward gets a definitive edition for PS5, available next week

The Definitive Edition will release on 17th May 2022, but Nine Dots Studio hasn’t shared any details on the graphical modes and framerate options the current-gen version will contain. On a base PS4 and PS4 Pro, Outward runs at around 30fps, so a boost in this area would be most welcomed. As for the game itself, this new version will make changes to combat and interactions, and features introduced by DLC will be implemented into the original adventure.

Outward, an old-school RPG that was initially launched for PlayStation 4 in 2019, will be repackaged as a Definitive Edition for PS5 next week. A free PS4 to PS5 upgrade is available for current owners, but you must jump through an additional hoop to qualify. You must have acquired The Brothers DLC from the PlayStation Store in addition to the main game. It is £19.99/£15.99.

Highlights

  • In our Outward PS4 review, we awarded the RPG a 6/10. “Outward may aim high but is most definitely flawed, constituting a game just above par that’s most ideal for RPG enthusiasts,” we concluded. The game has been patched numerous times since release, however, and has been treated to two expansions — The Brothers and The Soroboreans.
