Yes, The Outer Worlds Is Coming To Xbox Game Pass

Want to play The Outer Worlds, but don’t have the spare cash? If you’re planning on playing on XBox One or PC, you can pick up the game on Game Pass.

Game Pass is a subscription service for the Xbox One that allows players to pay a monthly fee for access to hundreds of games. The back catalogue, including games like Dishonored 2 and Wolfenstein: The New Order, may be worth the eleven dollar a month subscription on its own. The Outer Worlds, which is available on Game Pass when it launches Friday, definitely makes the whole thing more enticing.

The Outer Worlds Will Rattle Your Idea Of A Perfect Planet

The very first quest in The Outer Worlds, Obsidian’s highly anticipated first-person RPG out October 25, asked me to make what felt like an impossible choice. On one side was a community of outsiders frustrated by corporate control. Their outpost was something like a worker’s paradise — they were well fed and mostly happy, surviving by relying on each other. I admired their leader, Adelaide, for the passion that she had for her people. On the other side was the corporate-owned town they left, led by Reed Tobson, an idiot that didn’t seem to realise that asking his workers to only eat canned fish (for protein!) led to the population being ravaged by plagues.

At E3 this year, Microsoft announced that Game Pass would be coming to PC. The first month of your subscription is currently one dollar. After the first month, the price goes up to eleven dollars per month. You also need to have Windows 10 and the XBox Beta app installed — the service itself is still in beta on PC. In addition to the basic deal, there’s also the higher tiered Game Pass Ultimate, which includes Xbox Live Gold, PC access and Xbox access for $16 a month.

If you decide to grab Game Pass to check out this truly wonderful game, you’ll also be able to pre-load it onto your system. Enjoy your time in Halcyon, captain.


    • First month during the 2 weeks after E3 it was $1 for the first month, $4.95 per month while still in beta, and $11 when in full release which should have a bigger library. For PC that is.

      • Yeah, I took a look at the library on the Windows app >(fuck me that thing’s awful to navigate – Guys. I just want a complete list of all XGP PC games, sorted alphabetically. WHY IS THAT SO FUCKING HARD TO DISPLAY? Why did they not anticipate that this is a list that someone would want to view?!).

        It’s not inspiring. A bunch of shit I already own, Gears, Crackdown, State of Decay 2 (hah, yes, I remember the xbox 360 when those franchises were cool!). Some sports/racing shit, I guess, those titles just make my eyes glaze over. Sea of Thieves, I guess? No… this ain’t worth the sub yet. I’ll pay the buck for the trial that gets me a month’s access to Outer Worlds and then I’m pretty sure I’m done for however long it takes them to put some good shit on there.

  • I got the pass on pretty much day one. It has been totally worth it. The fact that I’m getting Outer Worlds on day one is such a huge bonus.

  • Or if your like me you sign up and Game Pass makes you update Windows which then knocks out your external GPU.

    So you think stuff it I’ll install the X-Box software and play on my internal GPU anyway which then just hard crashes Windows every time.

    So you have to roll back to a previous version of Windows and go and buy it at full price.

    Thanks Microsoft.
