[UPDATED] The Outer Worlds Will Be Getting a Physical Release, Priced at $60
The anticipated action-RPG The Outer Worlds from Obsidian Entertainment has officially been confirmed to be coming to retail as a $60 release.
With its reveal at The Game Awards this past December, The Outer Worlds quickly shot up to the list of most anticipated games for the year for many watching. While it’s not known just yet when the game is actually hitting later this year, we do know at least a few more details for the game, namely that you’ll be able to pick it up in stores or grab it digitally.
Coming from Game Informer, publisher Private Division has revealed that The Outer Worlds will be getting a physical release across PS4, Xbox One,
and PC, outside of its release on digital platforms as well. The publisher also confirmed that the title will be priced at $60, indicating that we can expect it to a full-priced release.
At this time, neither Private Division or Obsidian has revealed just yet when The Outer Worlds will arrive later this year, so its release date is still up in the air. However, while the game was only formally revealed a few months ago, we do at least have some core ideas of what the game will offer.
Notably, The Outer Worlds will be open to a degree for players to explore, though it won’t quite be a true “open-world” game where players will have one giant map to explore. Instead, the game will be composed of multiple areas across two planets, which sounds a bit closer to something like the Borderlands series.
Likewise, it was also reported last year that The Outer Worlds will not feature microtransactions of any kind in the game, which should give those looking for a single-player-oriented experience something to look forward to.
Coming from the minds between the original Fallout and developer Obsidian Entertainment, it’s no surprise that The Outer Worlds is a game that many will be looking forward to later this year, or at least I will. Though it’s still up in the air when the game is actually arriving, I’m just excited to get to know more about what’s in store from Obsidian’s new world to explore.
The Outer Worlds is expected to to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year.
UPDATE: Private Division has reached out to DualShockers in order to clarify that The Outer Worlds will only be receiving a physical release on PS4 and Xbox One. PC players will only be able to get the game digitally via Steam.
