Obsidian's new Outer Worlds skips Steam

Obsidian's new Outer Worlds skips Steam

Exodus, which had earlier switched from Steam to Epic Games Store, had faced a backlash.

During today's Unreal GDC 2019 livestream, Epic Games revealed a host of new exclusives coming to the Epic Store that won't be available on Steam for a year.

The partnership will enable developers to decide whether they want to sell their Epic Games Store titles on the Humble Store. Epic says it won't take a cut out of sales from Humble as it does from its own store.

Vietnam veteran Terry Barker, who voted for Trump and agrees with his politics, told the Times the president "should let it go". Prior to his death, McCain asserted that he had no regrets about his role in the release of the Steele dossier.


To date, Humble Bundle has raised more than $145 million for charity, Graham said. At the moment, Epic Games hasn't announced how many units of the game were sold on Steam or even what percentage of the sale took place via pre-orders.

Notable developers who have committed to launching their upcoming PC games as Epic Games Store exclusives (at least initially) include Remedy Entertainment (Control), Obsidian Entertainment (The Outer Worlds), and Heart Machine (Solar Ash).

Epic launched the Store in December 2018, offering developers an 88 percent cut of earnings rather than the 70 percent Steam offers. The completely free software development kit (SDK) will work on games for any platform on any store running on any engine. After that, the next free title will be Oxenfree. You can pick up Slime Rancer until tomorrow at 10:59 a.m. ET.
