Your character is exploring a solar system that’s experiencing the last 22 minutes of its existence, as the sun is about to go supernova. Fortunately for you though, you’re caught in a time-loop, allowing you to experience those 22 minutes again and again. With that in mind, and with the fact that knowledge crosses over between loops, it’s up to you to learn more about the mysteries of the solar system and a long extinct alien race.
Having a whole solar system to explore sounds like a fantastic starting premise for a game, so it’s no surprise that Outer Wilds has become such a popular independent title in recent years. If you haven’t played Outer Wilds yet, now is a great time to do so, as it’s now available on Game Pass for consoles, PCs, and even the cloud.
Truth be told, Outer Wilds already appeared on Game Pass in the past, with the game being removed from the service at the end of June last year. If you missed it first time around, you can play it now as part of Game Pass, and if you’ve been thinking of picking up the DLC, Echoes of the Eye, there’s no better time than now.
