The Outer Worlds
Publisher: Private Division
Developer: Obsidian Entertainment, Virtuos (Switch)
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch
Read that headline carefully now.
Last year saw the release of two different games with names that saw them endlessly get confused: The Outer Worlds from Obsidian Entertainment and Outer Wilds by indie developer Mobius Digital. They were both great games, but in very different ways, and now in a twist of what must be destiny, the two have had a behind-the-scenes crossover.
Earlier today at the Xbox Games Showcase, we got a trailer for the upcoming expansion to The Outer Worlds, Peril of Gorgon. Shortly after, Kelsey Beachum, Writer and Narrative Designer for Outer Wilds went to their official Twitter to say they wrote for the DLC. It’s not clear what position or role Beachum had, but they can put on their resume they’ve worked on both.
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon will launch September 9th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. As of now, no word on when the expansion will come to the Switch version. Outer Wilds is available on the same platforms.
I DID IT.
THEY ALL TOLD ME I WAS MAD, BUT I DID IT.
I WROTE FOR BOTH OUTER WILDS AND THE OUTER WORLDS. https://t.co/0EdMqKkeEl
