We recently included the excellent Outer Wilds in our list of games to play while you're waiting for Starfield, and now you've got an even greater excuse to play it, as it's getting a free Xbox Series X|S upgrade this September.

The exact date is September 15th, 2022, and while it hasn't been definitively confirmed yet, we're assuming the upgrade will be available on Xbox Game Pass as Outer Wilds is currently included as part of the service.

This version of the game brings Outer Wilds up to native 60FPS on both consoles.

Outer Wilds' free Xbox Series X and Series S upgrade will be complemented by a brand-new expansion called Echoes Of The Eye on September 28th, three years after the original release of the game in 2019. Pretty impressive!

If you haven't played Outer Wilds before, here's what you can expect from it:

"Outer Wilds is a critically-acclaimed and award-winning open world mystery about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop. You're the newest recruit of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly evolving solar system."
