How many players can play simultaneously?
Outward can only be played by two players in a split screen mode.
Can players split from each other?
Players are not dependent on each other. They can move in random places and areas. However, it is better to stick together in order to be able to support and to resurrect each other.
Is it possible to complete story missions together?
When your companion joins the team, he or she can explore the world with you, collect loot and develop skills. It is also possible to carry out story missions, but in this case your companion carries out missions on your account and not on his own.
Does the cooperation mode increase the level of difficulty?
In this mode opponents have more health points and there are dozens of them in comparison to the standard mode.
Can I resurrect my companion?
If your companion is killed, you can res him up at any time. This way, he/she will not lose any equipment or valuable items.
Is it possible to trade and share items?
Your companion can be used as another backpack. If you know that he will not escape with your loot, you may give him things from your inventory. This way you will be able to collect more raw materials and you don't have to worry about overloading your backpack.
Can I see where my partner is located?
You can check the location of your hero by looking at the compass, but he/she will not be visible on the map.
