Nine Dots has released the Pax West trailer for their upcoming open-world fantasy adventure Outward. The role-playing game is said to utilize elements from survival titles, such as the need for food and water, to impact the narrative. Players take charge of one of four factions and lead them across the lands of Aurai. The group will have to manage their resources and fight those that get in their way. The game will autosave frequently to ensure that players live with the outcomes of their decisions, and enemies will not scale to their level, which will make navigation difficult. Magic will take time to prepare, equipment will reduce mobility, and the environment will have an impact on gear. Players can also have a friend tag along locally or online in two-player co-op. Pax attendees can try the game out at Booth #7303.
