Outward hits milestone of over 1 million copies sold, new dev diary offers a look at upcoming The Three Brothers DLC
Publisher Deep Silver announced today that Outward, Nine Dots Studio’s brutal open-world fantasy RPG, has surpassed 1 million copies sold since its release on March 26, 2019.
“Today, perhaps more than ever, gamers are embracing challenging RPGs and immersing themselves within their deep, rich plots,” said Mario Gerhold, Int. Marketing Director Koch Media in a press release. “Outward is a great example of these games, that are not only great fun, but encourages the creation of emotional bonds from players to their characters and delivers a welcomed, temporary escape into the rewarding fantasy worlds for both single and co-op adventurers.”
“It’s hard to find the words to say when something that seemed impossible happens to you,” said Guillaume Boucher-Vidal, CEO at Nine Dots. “After flopping with our two previous titles, I had very conservative expectations and thought selling 100,000 copies would be a great step up from our previous attempts. To have sold ten times that is surreal. Outward isn’t a perfect game, though it has a lot of heart. And we had more heart than resources when we began work on Outward. Now we have experience, an audience, and more resources than ever before. I’m excited to think about what comes next.”
The latest DLC for Outward – The Three Brothers – will launch on December 15 for PC with a console release following next year. The DLC introduces new quests, weapons, and gameplay mechanics to the game.
In preparation for the DLC, the developer has released a new developer diary with Nine Dot Studios CEO Guillaume Boucher-Vidal to highlight some of the things players can expect to see.
