Video games have spread far and wide to a hugely diverse range of people that are young and old, women and men, and everything in-between: luckily, the independently-produced documentary series Outerlands will chronicle the fascinating places that gaming can take us with the series’ six installments.

Currently in development by the production company AREA 5 (previously of the documentaries I Am Street Fighter and Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, a new trailer has been released for the company’s upcoming Outerlands, a six-part documentary series that will explore “the people and culture of video games” by delving into a wide range of topics and following numerous subjects.

The documentary series will release over the course of six episodes, and is being made possible following a successful Kickstarter campaign that ended last year. Since then, AREA 5 have been traveling and shooting at a variety of locations including this past year’s Train Jam 2015 and EVO 2015, where the series will dive into indie game development, gaming communities, and an assortment of others.

The first episode of Outerlands will be screened at the upcoming XOXO art festival in Portland, Oregon, with the first episode to also begin releasing to Kickstarter backers in the near future – in the meantime, you can check out the brand new trailer for the documentary series below:
