Obsidian Entertainment's most recent RPG, The Outer Worlds, released in October last year across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. However, the PC version skipped Steam due to an exclusivity deal by the publisher Private Division with Epic Games, though Xbox Game Pass received the game on day one on PC without any trouble.

After a year-long wait, today it was revealed that the game will finally be arriving to Steam on October 23. The highly-rated science-fiction RPG's story takes place in Halcyon, a colony set in the "furthest edge of the galaxy". The player character is a newly unfrozen colonist that travels around the star system gathering crew members, fighting alien monsters, and solving mysteries while trying to get to the bottom of a corporate conspiracy.
The title also received its first piece of DLC last month named Peril on Gorgon, which delivers a brand new questline with new locations, characters, and weapons. The second and final DLC delivery to the game, Murder on Eridanos, is happening in 2021.
