    If you listen to what Phil Spencer said when he was interviewed by this old dude:



    If your game is on Game Pass expect to have millions playing it as soon as it comes through on the playlist! Outer Worlds is already a success before it even releases just being a fresh-faced day 1 Game Pass release!

    The game is coming to Steam on October 2020. The question is, if you've already bought the game before then, will you have to pay again to get it on Steam? Here's the email I sent to Private Division:

    It's all p. bizarre. It can't be an EGS key because keys are not a thing on EGS. It can't be a Steam key either. And Private Division doesn't have their own launcher. So it's what, a simple offline installer like you get on GOG? Or inb4 PD's own launcher announcement?

    EGS keys exist. They're being sold with boxes and via Humble Store.

    Isnt Windows Store exclusive game doesn't have .exe to begin with and just kinda launch?

    I remember Dead State 2 not having an actual .exe to be cracked but require making a shortcut of somesort emulating Windows Store launching the game. TOW will probably use the same system on Microsoft store?

    Shit you're right, the option is there. I could swear they said they wouldn't do keys.

    That's sounds a really good way to make Charisma/Spech based builds present into actual gameplay other than ''normal'' dialogue and their skill checks more frequent so you feel more reward about your choice of build , also make stealth/sneak skills something that isn't as needed, unlike FNV , for no-Kill/pacifist playthougths. But not dumb and unreliable as Fallout 4's Wasteland Whisperer and the Intimidation perks.

    One possibility is to sign up for one month of Xbox Game Pass for PC on November 1st (only costs 5 dollars), play the game for a month, forget about the game for a year and then buy it when it comes to GOG with bugfixes and DLCs.

    The downside is that you have to use the shitty Microsoft Store when the game first comes out.

    The upside is that in theory it should be easy to migrate save files from Microsoft Store to GOG/Steam, although that is not a 100% certainty obviously.

    I don't think you understand. I'm disappointed because I refuse to install any game clients whatsoever on my PC (whether it's Steam/Epic/etc), so the only way I have to legally buy games is through retail or GOG.

    The new XBOX app is hopefully out of beta by then, or use the GOG Galaxy 2.0 client if its out by then. (Doubt)

    Unless I missed something, afaik it's not guaranteed that this game will ever come out on GOG. Don't wait a year expecting it to show up there unless we hear otherwise.

    I sent Private Division an email asking if their store offers an offline installer similar to what GOG has.

    Absolutely. I was thinking more along the lines of New Vegas where it was put on GOG nearly a decade after release.

    Yeah, I realised this right after I wrote my post.

    I think thats a policy that is going to be hard for you to maintain in the long run. Physical distribution is dying. In a couple of years time I suspect that the only physical versions of most PC games that will be available will be collectors editions.
