While The Outer Worlds found plenty of success on Xbox Game Pass for PC and also sold on the Epic Games Store, Steam-only PC gamers have been missing out on Obsidian's latest RPG since launch. That will change very soon, with The Outer Worlds heading to Steam later this month.
The Outer Worlds is launching on Steam on the 23rd of October, alongside the game's recently released story DLC, Peril on Gorgon.
The Outer Worlds was originally developed by Obsidian when it was still an independent studio and published by Private Division, a subsidiary publisher of Take-Two Interactive. Private Division made the decision to release The Outer Worlds as an Epic Games Store exclusive for its first year on PC, but that timed period is now coming to an end.
Of course, when Microsoft bought Obsidian Entertainment in late 2019, that gave some leverage to bring the game to Game Pass, giving players another option outside of EGS to play the game.
Work on The Outer Worlds isn't over yet though, so if you are coming in late, you still have new content to look forward to after the Steam launch. The first story DLC, Peril on Gorgon is already released but a second expansion is also in the works for 2021.
KitGuru Says: The Outer Worlds was one of my favourite games of last year. Have many of you been waiting for it to come to Steam before playing? Will you be picking it up when it arrives later this month?
