The Outer Worlds and The Outer Wilds may have come out over a year ago, but their nearly identical names are still easy to mix up to this day. I’m not above mixing them up in casual conversation 12 months later. Here’s a quick reminder in case you’ve forgotten which is which. The Outer Worlds? Spacefaring RPG by Obsidian in the style of Fallout. The Out Wilds? Indie Ground Hog day where a man plays the banjo in space. Got it? Okay, well now that we have that straightened out, The Outer Worlds is $15 today on PS4 and Xbox One. Both come with free upgrades to the current-gen. It’s also available on Switch for $. It’s a standout RPG anchored by strong writing and characters, plus a must-play for fans of Fallout.
