While Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division's space RPG The Outer Worlds has been available on the Epic Games Store and Xbox Game Pass for PC, it hasn't been on any other PC platforms until now. The Outer Worlds is now available on Steam and GOG and if you grab it before November 6, you'll be able to get it for 50% off, or $30.

The Outer Worlds has one DLC expansion, Peril on Gorgon, while the second DLC, Murder on Eridanos, is scheduled to arrive at some point in 2021. There's a long list of science weapons and other unique gear for players to acquire as they talk, shoot or slash their way across Halcyon colony.

In our review, Xbox editor Jez Corden wrote that "The Outer Worlds is a tremendous RPG that feels like the culmination of Obsidian's efforts with similar franchises over the years. As a fan of classic Bioware and Bethesda RPGs, The Outer Worlds not only scratches the itch, but exceeds the legacy of the titles it draws inspiration from in some ways."
