Outward DLC The Soroboreans Launches Spring 2020
The open-world RPG Outward will be getting a downloadable content pack called “The Soroboreans” this Spring, which was announced by publisher Deep Silver and Developer Nine Dots Studio.
The DLC will up the challenge when it comes survival, meaning you’re going to have to pay extra attention when it comes to “death, dehydration, losing your backpack” and more. There will be a new system called Corruption, which will only affect your in certain areas, however, how it affects you will vary. According to their press release “the level of corruption affects you in different ways, and if you can’t shake it you could meet an untimely end. The world just got a whole lot scarier.”
The Soroboreans are part of a network of merchants and an academic institution, aptly adding magical enchantments to weapons and trinkets this DLC. There will also be new skills which react with the corruption mechanic.
Outward released in March of last year, featuring an open-world where as a traveller you’ll face terrible perils. Death is not the end, but can leave you in a tougher spot than when you begin. It also features split screen co-op, survival mechanics, combat and spellcasting. If you want to know what we thought of Outward you can check out this Outward Review – A Rough Adventure.
