Outer Wilds gets an Xbox Series X|S & PS5 release date

  • Outer Wilds will release for PS5 and Xbox Series X in September
  • It will include the Echoes of the Eye DLC
  • Save files will transfer over, but achievements and trophies won’t

Annapurna Interactive and Mobius Digital Games have announced a release date for Outer Wilds’ Xbox Series X|S and PS5 launch.

The action-adventure title will arrive on September 15. If you already own the game on Xbox One and PS4, you can upgrade for free.

On release, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Outer Wilds will boast native 60 FPS support, meaning a smoother gameplay experience. Additionally, it will include the Echoes of the Eye DLC, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on the complete experience.

However, there is one drawback to be aware of, which the developer revealed in a reply below the original tweet. While save files will transfer over, you will need to recollect all of your trophies or achievements again.
