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!

There’s also the latest expansion - The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon - available as well as a standalone purchase or as part of the expansion pass, along with the game’s official soundtrack. Or you can pick up The Outer Worlds: Non-Mandatory Corporate-Sponsored Bundle which includes the expansion pass and soundtrack in one great bundle for a 39% discount.

Or if you prefer to get your games on GOG, The Outer Worlds is also available there for the same 50% discount, though it looks like you won’t be able to pick up the Non-Mandatory Corporate-Sponsored Bundle or the game’s soundtrack over there, but the expansion pass and DLC is still available.

What do you think? Have you been waiting for the Steam/GOG release of The Outer Worlds? Have you already played it? What did you think? Let us know!

I actually did the xbox pass for 1 dollar and beat it on PC doing the xbox play anywhere pass. It was 100% worth it! can't take advantage of the DLCs though which is sad but the game was a lot of fun!

I wanted to buy it but it's too costly... Same with control also.. I expected it to drop it's price but samn. The only game from 2019 I was able to buy was resident evil 2 and Halo mcc

Nice to see some games jailed by epic finally get released. I'm still bitter about those exclusive deals but it's a hard offer to pass for some indie devs.

Yeah I'm not gonna support publishers who try to force me to use a platform I don't wanna use.

Already got it on Epic Store, but nice to see it coming to the reset of stores. Personally I just didn't feel like waiting and game is great, so no regrets there.

Did you know that the Epic Store version is DRM free and doesn't require the store app once downloaded? You can delete the .egstore folder and then it will launch without trying to launch the Epic app. I know it's a bit more to have to do than simply getting the files from GOG. There are quiet a few games on there that are DRM free, such as the Batman Arkham Trilogy (GOTY Versions).

You still need the account and that's way too much in case of Epic.

I remember watching a workaround for that on Chris Titus Tech YT channel.

Fair enough, I just use it for the DRM-Free games that I can't get through GOG.

A link for anybody wondering: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_DRM-free_games_on_Epic_Games_Store


I've decided to download the Epic app just for the Xmas period to get the free DRM-free games during their advent promotion then delete the store in the new year to prevent info being sent to Epic for the rest of the year.

That is a surprisingly-high number of DRM-free games!
