Outer Wilds is coming to PlayStation 4
Mobius Digital has announced that its open-world mystery Outer Wilds will be coming to PlayStation 4 on October 15th.
The game puts players in control of the newest recruit of Outer Wilds Ventures, a space program searching for answers in a solar system that is stuck in a 22-minute time loop.
“In space, there is no friction, oxygen and fuel are limited, and alien planets are home to deadly and unforeseen hazards. Outer Wilds presents all these challenges to players via a real-time physics simulation of the solar system,” producer Kelsey Rice wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
“This system gives rise to unpredictable events which can add danger to a seemingly calm expedition into ancient ruins. Players must use their jetpack, ship, retrievable scout, translator, signal scope, and, above all, their own knowledge to navigate the dangers of the solar system. Because the player carries knowledge between loops, uncovering new information can sometimes require deadly one-way journeys that inspire existential dread in players.”
Outer Wilds is available now on Xbox One and PC.
