Outer Wilds, not to be confused with The Outer Worlds (I know I have a few times) is heading to PS4 this month. The game is all about space exploration as you try to discover why you are stuck in a time loop on the day your solar system dies.
Mobius Digital Producer Kelsey Rice explains the premise of the game: “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. 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.”
If you are looking for a great adventure game and want to solve a mystery, then you should give Outer Wilds a look.
