No, The Outer Worlds isn’t an Xbox Play Anywhere title

Xbox Game Pass, though? Yes.

Despite being available on Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass for PC, Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds is not an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you won’t be able to benefit from cross-saves or cross-progression between the two platforms.

The Outer Worlds went live on PC via the Microsoft Store at 10am AEDT, and we’ve confirmed that our Xbox One save file is not accessible inside the PC version. Sadface.

The good news? Two sets of Achievements

While you won’t be able to carry your save file between the two versions of the game, there’s a bright spot in that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have ‘free’ access to both versions, and there are two different sets of Achievements that you’ll be able to earn. Yay?

Nonetheless, we’re absolutely in love with The Outer Worlds, giving it a 9.5 in our recent review and saying it’s like a Fallout game in space but with a much better engine than anything Bethesda uses.

The Outer Worlds is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
