The Outer Worlds Launching on Steam This Month
Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment announced that The Outer Worlds will be available for PC on Steam on October 23, 2020. The PC version is currently available on the Epic Games Store and the Microsoft Store. It is also available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
The Outer Worlds is co-directed by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, two of the original creators of Fallout. The game features first-person exploration and combat, with players able to use “Tactical Time Dilation” to slow time down, as well as branching dialogue, a companion system, and setting heavily influenced by player decisions. A story expansion, Perils of Gorgon, was released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in September 2020.
