Hot on the heels of news on Outward’s first premium DLC expansion earlier this week, Deep Silver and Nine Dots Studio have announced a new sales milestone for the game today. Outward, the open-world adventure RPG set in the fantasy world of Aurai, has now sold 600,000 units since its release on March 26, 2019.
CEO of Nine Dots Studio Guillaume Boucher-Vidal celebrated Outward as an “outstanding success” and spoke of looking forward to revealing the studio’s future plans for the game moving forward in a press release today.
To mark the occasion, the developer has also released the game’s wonderfully atmospheric OST. Boucher-Vidal praised composer Jean-François Racine for his efforts on the score, which was his debut as a video game composer:
“We are the first studio that hired for an entire game soundtrack and are thrilled with the result. Jean-François is still a newcomer, but he has a great career ahead of him. His music helped our game to build a very special atmosphere that the players will surely remember for a long time. We are therefore looking forward to his next works.”

As mentioned earlier, Outward’s first premium DLC, Soroboreans, is set to launch later this spring, adding new mechanics and features, and seemingly locations to the already robust experience.
Before that, a major free update released in October of last year added a hardcore mode for those wanting an even more harrowing survival experience.
Outward is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game supports both single-player and split-screen/online co-operative multiplayer functionality.
