The Outer Worlds Finally Comes To Steam This Month

Obsidian's hit RPG is finally heading to Steam after a year of Epic exclusivity.


The Outer Worlds is finally coming to Steam. The game, which launched on PC through the Epic Games Store and Xbox Game Pass in October 2019, will soon be available through Valve's storefront--it will release for Steam on October 24.

(This is the Obsidian-developed RPG, not the space-faring Outer Wilds; you'd be forgiven for confusing the two, especially since both launched on Epic rather than Steam.)

The game, which recently released its first expansion, is available through Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One too, and can be purchased on PS4 and Switch. Developer Obsidian has since been bought by Microsoft, so future installments in the series could be Xbox and PC exclusive.

We were big fans of The Outer Worlds, giving it a 9/10 and naming it one of the best games of 2019.

Obsidian followed The Outer Worlds with something very different--Grounded, now available in Early Access. It's a multiplayer title full of giant spiders and terrifying birds. The studio is also working on Avowed, a new RPG for Xbox Series X.
