Breath of the Wild heavily inspired the sequel to one of the first open-world games ever: 'You can literally go anywhere'

Outcast: A New Beginning, the sequel to one of the first open-world games ever, is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Outcast series returns after a quarter-century hiatus, but the 25-year hiatus gave the sequel more influences to draw from. Outcast: A New Beginning is about our main man returning to the alien planet Adelpha to liberate his home villages from an invading mech faction – and surprisingly, the way you move around its terrain has a lot in common with Nintendo's beloved open world.
