Would love a sequel but with a bigger budget. First game felt kinda short amd the mission struction had a very similiar loop

Outer Wilds 2 has already been announced, although no word on a release date yet.

Is this any different to Sony releasing horizon and the last of us part 1? Both games also include dlc and take advantage of the power of ps5

Yes as TLOU Part 1 and the rumoured Horizon remake are just that - remakes, sold as new packages separate to the original releases. This is an enhanced port. Can't say for certain as no official announcement has been made but similar ports from Microsoft have allowed for a free upgrade (presumably without the DLC if you don't already own it).
This would be more comparable to the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut.

No where does it say free upgrade. This is an edition version with all the dlc which likely be full price and can't upgrade just like control on ps5 and xbox series.

You didn't actually read my post properly, did you?
"Can't say for certain as no official announcement has been made but similar ports from Microsoft have allowed for a free upgrade (presumably without the DLC if you don't already own it)."
Alternatively though, you can compare it to the 9th Gen ports for Skyrim or GTAV, but the difference is those are enhanced ports (as would appear to be the case here) rather than full-scale remakes like the examples you've cited.

Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

I did. So what if they won't let you upgrade? Is it the same as Sony releasing horizon and the last of us part1?

I'm willing to bet Microsoft isn't going to charge 70 dollars for this.

$60? The main problem with Sony releasing horizon and the last of us part 1 for next gen is because it wasn't necessary

SecondWar Pinkie_pie (on 04 October 2022)

Yes, remakes weren’t necessary. Ports are entirely different.

Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

There's no need to port since ps5 and xbox series are backwards capabilities

SecondWar Pinkie_pie (on 04 October 2022)

Enhanced ports run better than games running via backwards compatibility.

Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

Remakes also run better than games running via backwards compatibility

If you can’t differentiate between a remake and a port then feel I need to stop wasting my time here.

Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

What if this enhanced port has no upgrade path and sell as new packages separate to the original release?

  • -2
SecondWar Pinkie_pie (on 04 October 2022)

What if it does have an upgrade path, which seems likely as Microsoft have done with all their cross-gen games so far.

  • +1
Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

But I've been asking if there's no upgrade path and charging full retail price. Would it be the same as Sony releasing horizon and the last of us part 1 for next gen?

  • -2
Pinkie_pie SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

Judgement, persona 5, control, gta5 and many others non sony games don't provide an upgrade path. Instead, players will have to purchase the enhanced edition separately at full retail price. Don't be surprised if this outer worlds next gen edition is the same

SecondWar Pinkie_pie (on 04 October 2022)

None of those are Microsoft games. So far, the only Microsoft owned title that has required a paid upgrade is Skyrim.

Qwark SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

They should make it a paid upgrade only for PlayStation. Since that is what the user base is used to anyway ;). Also can't you just get it for free on gamepass, since it's a game produced by Microsoft?

  • 0
SecondWar Qwark (on 04 October 2022)

They probably won’t make it a paid upgrade in one console and not the other. You can currently get the game via gamepass.

LudicrousSpeed SecondWar (on 04 October 2022)

Skyrim next gen upgrade is free, you just don’t get the extra content unless you pay. But the next gen features are free.

SecondWar LudicrousSpeed (on 04 October 2022)

I stand corrected then.

smroadkill15 Pinkie_pie (on 04 October 2022)

No, this is similar to HZD Complete Edition which includes the DLC. Nothing wrong with that. There has not been anything like that for The Outer Worlds until this. We also have no idea what they will charge for this. If it's $70 then that's an issue.

  • +2
Pinkie_pie smroadkill15 (on 04 October 2022)

No the horizon complete edition wasn't a next gen upgrade. I didn't need to buy it again because it's the same game with all the dlc which I got. This outer worlds edition is for next gen and if there's
no upgrade path I will have to buy it again
