Annapurna Interactive revealed today that Mobius Digital‘s acclaimed sci-fi exploration adventure Outer Wilds will shed the shackles of exclusivity on June 18th, as it’ll get a Steam release on that date (the game was originally released as an Epic Games Store exclusive last year).
I do wonder if the planned Microsoft Store version will also materialize on that date, as I recall that the game had been given away for free in a MixPot (from watching a certain event on Mixer) and the exclusivity deal removed it from players’ libraries on PC.

You’re the newest recruit of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly evolving solar system.

A World That Changes Over Time
The planets of Outer Wilds are packed with hidden locations that change with the passage of time. Visit an underground city of before it’s swallowed by sand, or explore the surface of a planet as it crumbles beneath your feet. Every secret is guarded by hazardous environments and natural catastrophes.

For anyone who might have read a different thing, this is Outer Wilds and not The Outer Worlds. Obsidian‘s sci-fi RPG should be on Steam in October of this year, if that’s the one you’ve been waiting for.
