The Outer Worlds is about to end its one-year exclusivity on the Epic Games Store. Obsidian Entertainment’s space-faring, action role-playing game is coming to Steam in two weeks.

When The Outer Worlds was first released, it garnered mostly favorable reviews as a spiritual successor to the immensely popular Fallout: New Vegas. Aside from some performance issues, the main critique was a lack of content. Well, the game’s first DLC actually launched last month.

A second, final DLC is expected to release in 2021 called The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos. Players can purchase Peril on Gorgon by itself or as part of an expansion pass featuring both DLC from the official website. Prices are listed as $14.99 and $24.99, respectively. Steam has not announced its pricing yet. Recently the game made another headline with its extremely fast load times on the upcoming Xbox Series X.

  1. Cool.

    I’ll probably buy it to show support, as long as they don’t price it like it’s a brand new game, which it no longer is.

    **** Epic. **** them long and **** them hard.

  2. This game was also on the Microsoft Store since release. I got it there already for the Play Anywhere perk.
  3. LOL I forgot I even had this game that I actually paid for. Some day I might even finish it. Maybe.

    I can’t remember what I got it free with but it was something involved in my 3700x build last year. One of these days I’ll get around to playing it.

  4. As someone who usually takes a long time to get around to new games anyways, I almost never notice when games have time-limited EGS exclusivity. Before I even know it, they’re being made available on Steam. A year of exclusivity can go by real dang fast.

    Probably better that way anyway. These days it seems like it almost takes a year for game to fully bake after release.

  6. I played it because I Got a game pass sub with my 3700x, but I do not wish that expereience even on my enemies. I mean games pass on PC, not the game itself. I liked it well enough, but it’s not spectacular I never went back to it after completing the main campaign once.

    My experience wasn’t far from this.

    Game was not too bad.

    Game Pass on the PC – ~almost~ there. Great idea, fails in the execution. I think tying it to the Windows Store, with it’s very arcane method of file management and permissions, makes it pretty awkward to use. Particularly if your a neat freak and like all your files and folders to line up nice and tidy.

    Yeah I tried that too, and yeah…. just not a very well thought out / designed process.

    I think that might be how I got it as well but somehow I was able to link it to my EGS account. I do remember some kind of clunky process for it all though.
