2018 was the year of epic games which included hits such as the Red Dead Redemption etc. Fallout 76 is coming sooner than ever and Borderlands 3 still MIA, people have been wondering when The Outer Worlds will come to town. The recent development in the world of games is that Obsidian Entertainment, known for RPG games such as Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, may have just been acquired by Microsoft. Hence The Outer World will be the last nail in the coffin before their studio is painted by the Xbox-flavor.
It was announced at E3 2018 by Microsoft announced that it had
acquired Obsidian Entertainment. Microsoft will be the first party
studio to develop exclusives on its platform after the release of The
The highly anticipated game, Outer Worlds will be out sometime this
year. Obsidian has spoken of some of the key details such as how the
shooter-infused game will work. Today we’ll talk about The Outer World
game including the latest on release dates, platforms, gameplay and
more. We’ll update this page throughout the year.
As goes for the release date of The Outer World, it is notified that
it is gonna be releasing this year. The Outer World was announced last
December. Very briefly, Obsidian hasn’t specified any exact launch dates
just yet. A delay is obviously on the cards, but the important thing to
remember here is that The Outer World won’t be coming in the first half
of 2019 at all. My bet is laid upon the second half of 2019. The only
platform is Xbox One, and the game is coming to PS4, PC, Xbox One, and
PS4 but not the Nintendo Switch.

Those playing on PC will find it strange for the game to not be
available via Steam. That’s right. We’re told that The Outer World won’t
be out on Steam. Epic doesn’t have any plans to do that. According to
Obsidian, the game will be available solely via Epic and the Microsoft
Store for at least a year.
While that is strange, it is understandable because that’s just how
Epic works. All in all, it shouldn’t be a major problem. I expect the
game to be good either way. I hope it doesn’t disappoint and the
acquisition of the game doesn’t get complicated due to the whole Steam
Fiasco. When a release date for The Outer World is announced, we’ll let
you know here on Otakukart. Make sure that you keep an eye.

The demo of the game, which was made available just a few weeks ago when
turned out to be bug ridden. While none of them were too huge, it
certainly did point out the weaknesses of the game. We expect the
finished product to be a lot better than the showing we got earlier this
Also, recently it was revealed that the game isn’t going to have a
lot of crafting in it. Most of the games today have tonnes of tedium.
This game is going to be a bit different. This has generated a mixed
reaction from the gamers community, but we’re excited to see how it
