With all the Cyber Monday deals going around today, you might forget that some of the best deals are right under your nose. There are a ton of deals going around for games that drop games to under half of their MSRP, but there’s one that lets you play The Outer Worlds, the recently-released space RPG from Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment for just one $1, which is practically free.
Yes, if you have an Xbox One or PC, the best Cyber Monday deal on the game is arguably through Xbox Game Pass, where it’s free to play. New subscribers can get a three-month Game Pass Ultimate membership–which includes Xbox Live Gold along with Game Pass for both console and PC–for just $1 as part of Microsoft’s Black Friday sale, and The Outer Worlds is part of the subscription’s collection. That should be more than enough time to play through the entire game. If you’re looking to add it to your library permanently, though, some stores have some nice discounts. Make sure you cancel your subscription after you’ve finished the game if you don’t plan to play other games on the service, like Gears 5 or The Outer Wilds, in the near future.
The Outer Worlds Best Cyber Monday 2019 Deals
Right now, Best Buy and Amazon have the best deal on The Outer Worlds on PS4 and Xbox One. Both currently have it listed for $35 on their site, though supplies have been running out over the weekend. Otherwise, the best deals on The Outer Worlds are actually for the digital versions for consoles and PC (usually physical copies will get markdowns first). For PS4, your best bet is to grab it in PSN’s Black Friday sale for $45 and download directly from the PlayStation Store.
You can get a digital copy for cheap on Xbox One–Amazon has a digital code available for just $40, which beats out the Xbox Store price.
Finally, for PC, you have several good options. The Outer Worlds is $44.39 as part of Fanatical’s Black Friday sale, but by using our exclusive promo code GAMESPOT11 at checkout, you can get it for just $39.51, which is technically the lowest price currently available. However, the best overall deal may actually be at Green Man Gaming. If you purchase certain games during the Black Friday sale, like Red Dead Redemption 2 and The Outer Worlds, you’ll receive a code for the Intel Starter Pack, which lets you choose five free games from a selection of titles. You can find more info on that bonus at GMG.
