Some sort of DLC or part 1 of a season pass for the game.
Vid from egosoft talking about bugs and forthcoming updates.
How longs this game been out now, 4 years and still no planets with atmosphere and I understand that they have abandoned doing any getting out of the ship apart from that Mario cart thing they have for driving around some moons with a bit of mist on them.
Apparently it’s too hard to do, which is a bit of surprise considering that Frontier Devs like to portray themselves as a cutting edge game developer.
You can also get it on the PS4 or Switch, although no mention of an Xbox 1 version.
Just thinking about that, the three games which we here are interested in, are I think all multi format games, not sure about the outer wilds. but it would make sense for the games devs to tie themselves into exclusive deal for the PC version if they have console versions of the game.
Not sure this Epic store exclusive would be such a good deal for an indie dev just making a PC only game.
I was looking forward to getting it but I think I will do the same and wait.
One thing Epic should do is make the store separate from their Fortnite game, at the moment the store looks like a bit of an after thought.
They have yet to say weather they intend staying on Steam, but I think it a good bet that they will take Epic’s money.
Another one off to the Epic store, for an unknown period of time. https://steamcommunity.com/games/712190/announcements/detail/1721961700671288107
Company of Heroes 2 free on Steam until the 10 of Dec.
The game has been getting a number of updates over the last month. https://store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=465490
Their was an an update to the game about a week ago with no patch notes and no announcement from the devs as to what it was.
It turns out that it some thing call buffpannel ie spyware was added to the game, as they have now admitted to in this thread https://steamcommunity.com/app/366910/discussions/0/1741101364300190771/
Along with Surving Mars it makes you wonder how many other game have this.
May be good news/bad news, depends on you point of view but Double Damage have announced that PC game will be exclusive to the new Epic game store for a year. https://rebel-galaxy.com/rebel-galaxy-outlaw-launching-on-epic-games-store-qa/
Good news for Double Damage as I’m sure Epic have given them a ton of cash for doing this and I read that they will get more cash from the sale of the game, which IIRC was a bug bear with them from the first game.
Might not be such good news for us customers as I read nothing about how Epic/ Double Damage are going to handle the download ie if you lose the connection will you have to redownload it from the start?. How will updates/patches be handled and what type of DRM will be used.
New update for the game https://steamcommunity.com/games/314230/announcements/detail/1691562403168703921 will have to check it out as I have not played the game for awhile.
I have found that you can feed the animals at any time as long you have items they will eat, but I don’t recommend trying to feed the predators. 🙂
I have had a few space combat encounter with pirates, they will usually appear if you carrying anything of value, and they also followed me all the way down onto the planets surface once.
Combat is on the arcade side but is a lot fun to play even in the freighters which has a noticeable slower turning speed than the fighter did.one thing which is not too good is the radar which dose not appear to work very well, although the lock on is auto and the game will show an arrow as to where that ship is.
Reminds me of the Precursors, they also have a Steam page https://store.steampowered.com/app/578650/The_Outer_Worlds/ with a bit about the game.
Two planets are mentioned and my guess would be that the gameplay arear on the planet would be a map rather than a full planet map, no mention of any vehicles or aircraft, but we may see something later about that.
It also mentions a ship and crew and my guess would be a Mass Effect type ship where you don’t fly the ship and it more of a player hub. I know I would prefer a flyable ship and full scale solar system with the planets, moons and stations in it but I don’t think we will get anything like that, more likely to be Mass Effect/ Fallout mash up.
Edit just spotted this on YouTube, 14 minutes of gameplay, also some detail from PC Gamer website https://www.pcgamer.com/obsidians-the-outer-worlds-blends-firefly-and-fallout-into-a-bold-open-ended-sci-fi-rpg/ looks I was right about the ship and wrong about the map as it looks like it will be more linear than open world.
You have to wonder if Egosoft dose this on purposes because they know they can get away with it or it a genuine lack of resources.
