With only brief, abstract descriptions to its name and a trailer that leaves a litany of lingering questions, California-based Mobius Digital‘s Outer Wilds has an unmistakable aura of mystery. Now, freshly launched on May 30, Outer Wilds is at last within our grasp. The narrative adventure flings you into a space program called Outer Wilds Ventures. As the newest member of this initiative, you’ll trek through a solar system rife with ominous questions lurking beneath the surface of every planet. Outer Wilds explains itself with the following minimalist inscription:
“Outer Wilds is an open world mystery about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop.”
Explore a universe filled with chaos and conundrums. Navigate the impossibilities and intricacies of time. And, above all else: survive. Outer Wilds is available now on Xbox One and, while there’s also a Steam page, it seems it’ll live exclusively with Epic and Xbox for the time being.
