FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.Feb. 27, 2024 – Saber Interactive has announced it is partnering with indie developer Serious Sim to publish the highly-stylized, immersive driving game Heading Out on May 7, 2024, on PC via Steam. Heading Out is a narrative adventure with roguelite elements inspired by cult classic road movies like Thelma & Louise and Vanishing Point. Check out the game’s new release date trailer for an up-close look at the lawless action and attitude that await when you put the pedal to the metal and leave your fears in the dust.

It’s you, your car, and the road. Take off down America’s cities, highways and backroads on an emotional trip of discovery blending white-knuckle racing, strategy and storytelling. Grab the wheel and choose your own route across the USA on an unpredictable thrill ride shaped by the decisions you make. It’s not about the destination – it’s about your journey.

Key Features

  • Your Adventure: Each trip offers a unique balance of high-speed chases and races, treacherous hazards and challenges, and colorful characters and stories, brought to life with stylish graphic novel visuals. Outrun your fears and the law, pursue your dreams, and risk the consequences at the end of the road.
  • Your Choices: Every journey is yours to define. Strategically plan out your route and resources in advance on the map, or hit the gas and fly by the seat of your pants. Each decision shapes the road ahead, including your narrative encounters, fuel consumption, car condition and wanted level.
  • Your Legend: Your unique story unfolds with every pitstop across the heartland. Meet strangers, oddballs and lost souls who’ll influence your tale, but don’t linger too long – you’ve got to keep moving. Listen to radio hosts spread your myth to the people as it grows while an eclectic Americana soundtrack carries you down the horizon.

Heading Out will be present at PAX East (March 21-24) with a playable demo at the Indie Games Poland booth, #18084. Don’t miss this chance to discover this immersive driving game firsthand.
