Outland’s PC version dropping later this month, first trailer out

To celebrate the imminent release of the PC version of Outland (September 29th; exclusively on Steam), publisher Ubisoft and developer Housemarque have released a new trailer (seen below) for the upcoming 2D action/adventure platformer. “Outland is a fast-paced, dynamic platformer where the player uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos”, reads the game’s official description. “In-between Balance and Chaos stands one man, whose efforts will either bridge the ancient divide or doom the world to destruction. Outland is an ambitious 2D-platformer with a beautiful visual style and a unique, polarity-switching gameplay system. Your adventure will shift between light and darkness as you struggle to adapt in an ever-changing world!”

In addition to the main storyline, Outland also features an Arcade Mode that puts players to the test by putting a set time for gamers to traverse throughout an entire region and defeat its protector. Flipping a switch, pausing the game, and dying halt the timer. Arcade scores increase with multipliers that drop from enemies, and a bonus is given depending on how much time is left after the protector is defeated. An Arcade chapter for one area is unlocked as soon as the area itself is unlocked. Outland is also available on the PlayStation 3 (via PSN) and Xbox 360 (via XBLA).
