Outer Wilds dated for PC and Xbox One
Highly anticipated space exploration game releasing at the end of May
Mobius Digital will launch its award-winning space exploration game Outer Wilds on May 30.
The game will be available on Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games store.
According to its official blurb, “Outer Wilds is a space exploration game where you uncover the mysteries of a solar system stuck in a time loop.”
The alpha build of Outer Wilds won the Grand Prize and Excellence in Design awards at 2015’s IGF awards, and has been downloaded almost 90,000 times.
Mobius raised over $126,000 from 968 backers to help develop the game, which was originally planned for release on PC, Mac and Linux through Steam.
But in a recent update on crowdfunding site Fig, Mobius revealed the PC version of the title would be an Epic Games store exclusive at launch, angering some backers who claimed they wouldn’t have supported it had they known.
“Rest assured that we read all of your comments and our goal is to bring the game to your preferred platform as quickly as possible,” Mobius added.
