When the initial reports on Outland surfaced, many believed that developer Housemarque would continue to send their titles exclusively to Sony’s PlayStation Network. They have seen success with Super Stardust HD and Dead Nation. Now, teamed with Ubisoft, Housemarque is bringing their next highly anticipated title, Outland, to Xbox Live Arcade on April 27th, for 800 Microsoft Points.

Commonly compared to Prince of Persia and Ikaruga, Outland is a departure from the twin-stick shooter titles that we are used to seeing from Housemarque. Don’t remember what the game looks like? View the Trailer. After getting some hands-on with this game at PAX East, we are very excited for the release. Come back to the site for our official review soon after the release.
