Annapurna Interactive has shared that last year’s smash hit Outer Wilds is inbound for a Steam release. On June 18th, Steam users will be able to experience the critical darling of 2019 without having to use the Epic Games Store.
Outer Wilds – not be confused with The Outer Worlds – thoroughly put its stamp into the gaming landscape of 2019 with fascinating game design and thought-provoking gameplay loop. Being one of the most important games of the last year, Epic managed to swoop in and secure the game as a timed-exclusive on their Epic Games Store.
After a little more than one year, the Outer Wilds will soon be freed from this exclusivity and finally also be available on Steam. So, if you haven’t yet played the excellent game on neither console nor the Epic Games Store, there’s no more excuses not to experience one of the best games of the generation come June. Here’s the developer’s official game description.
