If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to grab Obsidian’s latest sci-fi RPG romp then you’re in luck, because after a long exclusivity period with the Epic Games Store The Outer Worlds is finally available on Steam, and you can even grab it for a great 50% discount too!
Greetings, Spacers, Obsidian Entertainment have confirmed that their latest sci-fi RPG romp The Outer Worlds is officially coming to Steam on October 23rd after being an Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store exclusive for 12 months. So if you’ve been waiting to brave the Halcyon system with your trusty Steam locomotive, well now’s your chance.
If you've been waiting for your next fix of The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon arrives September 9th.
The most recent Xbox Games Showcase just debuted a couple days ago, and whilst we got a good look at some Halo Infinite campaign gameplay, one of the biggest takeaways was just how busy Obsidian clearly is. The first of which they unveiled was the first DLC expansion for their sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds.
The juggernaut that is Red Dead Redemption 2 dispatched Halo with all the ease of an experienced rustler herding cows, firing a repeater square between Master Chief's eyes. It's become the first game to reach the Grand Final.
In the run up to The Outer Worlds’ launch, all the talking surround DLC was pretty emphatic ‘no’ from developer Obsidian. It was a once-and-done game, the sort of complete package which we, sadly, rarely get these days. 
Yesterday's fight was what I like to call squeaky bum time. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice traded punches for hours on end. Ultimately, there was just a handful in it and Respawn's Star Wars game walked out the victor. Just.
In Obsidian we trust, or so the old saying goes. Not content with giving us the sublime Alpha Protocol, they've only gone and outdone Fallout with The Outer Worlds, a planet-hopping sci-fi romp with humour to spare. It's a joyous little thing and it also happens to run really rather well too, at least on our test rig.
Obsidian probably couldn't have planned The Outer Worlds timing any better. While Bethesda cocks up at every available opportunity, along comes the Fallout: New Vegas developers to show us exactly how a sci-fi RPG should be done. The Outer Worlds has been earning rave reviews and it could be played on PC for as little as $1 through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Nvidia’s latest GeForce Game Ready graphics card driver has arrived with day one support for the release of this week’s two biggest titles - The Outer Worlds. 
Here we go, it’s time for one final peek at Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds before it’s launch time. They’ve dropped a launch trailer for Outer Worlds which pretty much sums up all you need to know about this off-the-wall sci-fi RPG.
