The Outer Worlds Coming To Physical Media, Sets Price

For our March issue cover story, we visited Obsidian Entertainment to take a deep dive into The Outer Worlds. Led by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, two of the creators of the original Fallout, the new game has sparked the imagination of gamers with its new original sci-fi pulp setting and its first-person RPG gameplay. It’s safe to say that the game has rocketed into the territory of highly anticipated, and we now have some more details about how publisher Private Division is planning to handle release.

In addition to its availability on digital platforms, The Outer Worlds will also be available on disc at physical retail on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. [Editor's Note: Private Division followed up after our publication of this article to correct their earlier statement, clarifying that The Outer Worlds will indeed come to physical retail on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but will be digital-only on PC.] Regardless of format, Private Division has shared with us that the game will retail for $60.

While we know the platforms and price, Obsidian and Private Division are still not ready to share a release date for the game. As of now, we only know that The Outer Worlds has a planned release date sometime in 2019.

Granblue Fantasy Relink No Longer Developed By PlatinumGames

Granblue Fantasy, a popular Japanese mobile RPG from Cygames, has been exploding into different types of games recently. Just a few months ago, Cygames and Arc System Works announced a fighting game using characters from the title. Even longer ago, Cygames announced a collaboration with action game experts PlatinumGames for a large scale PlayStation 4 RPG called Granblue Fantasy Relink. Now Cygames has announced that PlatinumGames will no longer be developing the console title and that it is being moved entirely to their internal development.

Cygames announced this change in a short and somewhat terse press release that does not go into any reasoning on the subject.

"Tokyo-based video game publisher and developer Cygames, Inc. (HQ: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; President: Koichi Watanabe, hereinafter referred as “Cygames”) has recently been engaged in the co-development of the upcoming console game Granblue Fantasy: Relink together with esteemed developer PlatinumGames Inc.," the press release starts. "Going forward, Cygames will handle 100% of development internally."

Valve Holding Award Show For Steam Awards

Every year, Valve has Steam users vote on various Steam awards, picking out the best games from the previous year and beyond in a large number of different categories. For example, in the 2017 awards, The Witcher 3 won the "Choices Matter" award, while PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds won the "Mom's Spaghetti" award. Some are a little harder to parse than others. When the results are in, Valve makes a news post with the winners and puts a badge on the store page and everyone just moves on with their lives.

Now that the voting is over for the 2018 awards, Valve is going to go a step further with a Steam Award Show.
