On Xbox One, Outer Wilds releases day one on Game Pass. Provided you’re already paying the $10 USD a month subscription fee, you can download and start playing the game come May 30. On PC, Outer Wilds is launching as a limited-time Epic Games Store exclusive.
Mobius Digital has released a new trailer for its upcoming open world exploration game, Outer Wilds. The game is scheduled to release for Xbox One and PC on May 30.
After fans expressed a desire for the game to launch on Steam as well, Mobius Digital said people can feel «rest assured» that their feedback is heard and that the overall goal is to «bring the game to players’ preferred platform as quickly as possible.» Mobius Digital explained that deals were struck with both Epic Games and publisher Annapurna Interactive-the latter of which is also responsible for publishing indie games such as Ashen, Donut County, and What Remains of Edith Finch-to «keep our small studio running long enough to ship the game at the level of quality that it is today.» The studio added that «each of these partnerships has enabled us to make the game better and more accessible for everyone who will play it.»
In Outer Wilds, you play as an alien caught in a The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask-like time loop. As the newest member of your planet’s space program, you travel from planet to planet within your solar system in search of an explanation as to why the loop keeps occurring. Like Majora’s Mask, you use what you learn from each loop to further your progress in subsequent attempts.
«The planets of Outer Wilds are packed with hidden locations that change with the passage of time,» Mobius Digital said in a press release. «Players can visit an underground city before it’s swallowed by sand, or explore the surface of a planet as it crumbles beneath their feet.»
