Outer Wilds to release on PC and Xbox One next week; new trailer out
21 May, 2019
In Outer Wilds, you must solve the mystery of a solar system that’s trapped in a time loop. You can get to it later this month, on either PC or Xbox One.
Outer Wilds has some really adorable-looking planets. They look like marbles that you can fly around or even fly through, as the case may be. These varied planets are all trapped in a time loop, and your job is to find out why. Don’t start packing your spacesuit just yet, though, the game is only coming out next week.
According to a newly-released trailer for the game, Outer Wilds will release on 30th May for PC (exclusively via Epic Games Store) and Xbox One.
No other platforms have been announced, but as for PC launchers, the game will also launch on Steam at some point. Or maybe we’ll all be stuck in a time loop before that happens, and the game will keep perpetually releasing on Epic Games Store? Anything’s possible.
Right, here’s the trailer in question:
Outer Wilds is being developed by California, USA-based outfit Mobius Digital and it is being published by Annapurna Interactive. You might be familiar with the latter for their impressive publishing line-up, which includes the likes of Donut County, Sayonara Wild Hearts, and Ashen.
By the way, if you have the distinct feeling that you’ve heard of this game before, but it looked nothing like what it does—you might be thinking of Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds. You’re welcome.
