Spotted by VGC, it appears a new version of Obsidian’s acclaimed space-faring RPG, The Outer Worlds, is headed to new-generation consoles as well as PC.
According to a now-removed listing on the Taiwanese Ratings Board (image below captured by Gematsu), this re-release is coming to current platforms – the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC – and is called The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition.
Presumably both released story expansions, Peril on Gorgon and Murder on Eridanos, would be included in this newly-packaged version of the game, though exact details aren’t yet available as nothing has been made official.
We gave The Outer Worlds an 8.5 in our review, saying “The Outer Worlds is the kind of inspired take on a genre that could only come from a team as passionate and talented as Obsidian. It’s not perfect, but it’s creative, succinct, compelling and funny in all the right ways.”
Obsidian’s various teams have been busy of late, having just launched Grounded in its 1.0 release and with the PC and Xbox-exclusive medieval narrative adventure Pentiment just around the corner. A sequel to The Outer Worlds is also in the works, alongside the still-mysterious Avowed.
