It includes The Outer Worlds base game and both its narrative expansions, Murder on Eridanos and Peril on Gorgon, for £49.99.
Players who already own the game and both DLC packs for Xbox One, PS4 or PC can upgrade to the Spacer’s Choice Edition for $9.99 / £5.
Microsoft, which acquired Obsidian in November 2018, has said it hopes to build The Outer Worlds into an “enduring franchise”.
And in June 2021, Obsidian announced The Outer Worlds 2 for Xbox Series X/S and PC with a comedic trailer indicating the game was nowhere near ready.
Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart recently said he’d love to work on another Fallout game given the chance.
The RPG veteran was involved in the production of the first two Fallout games during his time at Black Isle Studios and Interplay Entertainment in the late 1990s, and Obsidian developed 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas.
