Publisher Prime Matter and developer Nine Dots have announced today that their all-encompassing ultimate adventure experience, Outward Definitive Edition, will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on May 17th, 2022.

The Definitive Edition of Outward lets seasoned players rediscover the base game with both DLCs – “Three Brothers” and “The Soroboreans” – along with a plethora of new and updated content.

For first-time players, this is a golden opportunity to dive headfirst into all the adventures the magical world Aurai has to offer, either as a solo experience or co-op with a friend.

To celebrate the announcement, Prime Matter has released a new Release Date Reveal Trailer that has both the base game and expansions.

About Outward Definitive Edition

Outward Definitive Edition delivers an immersive RPG experience coupled with survival gameplay, offering a deeply-rewarding challenge for the most avid gamers.

As an ordinary adventurer, you’ll not only have to hide or defend yourself against threatening creatures, but also brave hazardous environmental conditions, protect yourself against infectious diseases, and make sure you get enough sleep and stay hydrated. Embark on perilous expeditions across untamed lands to reach new cities, undertake varied missions and discover hidden dungeons crawling with formidable enemies.

Complicating matters is the ‘Corruption’ – a toxic material spreading across the land that can best be described as radioactivity of the soul. Found naturally in the land, its distribution was concentrated and expanded after the Scourge Spell was cast, which also destroyed cities and created the most dangerous monsters at the same time.


  • Survive in the wilds as you explore the land
  • Play solo or cooperatively, split-screen locally or online
  • Ritualistic, step-by-step approach to spellcasting
  • Constant auto-saving means you must live with your decisions
  • Encounter dynamic defeat scenarios
  • A unique experience with every playthrough

These and many more challenges await all adventurers who dare to go venture out into the wilderness and cities the world of Outward Definitive Edition has in store.

Returning players who already own the base game and the Three Brothers DLC can redeem a free copy of the Definitive Edition.

Outward is already out on PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store).
