The Outer Worlds (not to be confused with Outer Wilds), is Obsidian's space-faring RPG, released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2019.

This new version brings plenty of visual improvements: higher resolution graphics, a dynamic weather system, overhauled lighting and environments, improved performance and load times, and enhanced details on characters.

It also includes an increased level cap, as well as both DLCs: Murder on Eridanos and Peril on Gorgon.

Players who already own the game on previous consoles can upgrade for £5, otherwise the complete Spacer's Choice Edition package is £49.99.

If you're yet to play The Outer Worlds at all, it's original edition is available on Game Pass.

The Outer Worlds 2 was announced for PC and Xbox Series X/S in 2021, though we've heard nothing more about it since then.
