Corey’s rating indicates that a full version of The Outer Worlds may be on the way.
Looking at the games due for release this year and beyond, one thing that is definitely not lacking is space-themed adventures. We’ve got High on Life, a wacky FPS with guns launching in December, the sprawling Starfield due to take off sometime in the first half of 2023, and many more. Now it looks like Obsidian is inviting us again for another slice of the choice-filled space show, The Outer Worlds, with all DLC included.
As spotted by Gematsu, something called The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition has been rated in Korea. Exactly what this is, when it will be released, and what platforms is not yet clear, but it is believed that it is a full release that will include expansions of the two-story game along with the main adventure. The first of the DLCs is Peril on Gorgon, where you investigate an abandoned Halcyon Science Facility that previously specialized in suspicious experiments. He sees you in the second murder on Eridanos venturing with Eridanos to unravel a murder mystery.

If you are still on board with this sci-fi adventure, we highly recommend that you do. In our review, we said The Outer Worlds “represents the Obsidian brand that is at the top of its game, and a solid foundation for a new series that appears to be headed for greatness.”
Microsoft bought Obsidian back in 2018, and last year it was announced that any future titles for The Outer Worlds would be published by Microsoft. A sequel to The Outer Worlds is currently in the works for Xbox Series X and PC. Not much is known about the game yet, but Obsidian revealed that The Outer Worlds 2 will be something of a clean slate. The developer tweeted, “New star system. New crew. Same outer worlds.” There’s no word on a release date, so you should have plenty of time to catch up on (or replay) the first game and its downloadable content before the sequel arrives.
