I WILL be giving Obsidian my money, for Pre Order, as soon as I can. Anyone have ANY idea when this will happen?

Dunno but it shows up on Steam now, so you can wishlist it and it'll probably update you when you're allowed to lob money at them.

Yep, I'm the eternal sucker. I'll be pre-ordering the game. However, with a few exceptions, I've enjoyed my pre-ordered games a lot, so I guess I don't feel too bad about doing it.

Will Steam be the only option?  I always prefer to go directly via the publisher whenever possible.

I mean, they've already displayed that they'll be selling via Steam and have a Steam store page and so on. That said, Epic Games' storefront would logically be giving Obsidian a larger slice of the pie once that's an option. Steam's 70% isn't a bad cut, but since it uses UE4 and the Epic Games storefront takes a smaller cut from sales -and- doesn't charge the normal slice for using their engine as far as I understand it... I guess Epic Games' storefront would be the way to make sure the most money makes it into Obsidian/Private Division's hands.

Yes, I would definitely support some way of purchasing directly through the developer.  I will install Steam if that is the only way, but I always find it unnecessary middle-ware for the most part.  A developer of Obsidian's caliber could easily make a direct-buy option available, if they thought there would be sufficient support for that option.  So thumbs-up from me for a non-steam option for purchasing the game.

I actually hope it's on the Microsoft Store. It's a very easy and fast way to receive updates and download games.

As is Steam & GOG Galaxy.

Why would you need to pre-order a digital game? When it comes out you can buy it? It's not as if they are going to run out of stock.

So that it will automatically download while I sleep and I won't have to waste that chunk of time.

I only play single player games and as we are seeing lots of single player focused games (Fallout, ESO) are becoming multiplayer, The Outer World feels like a breath of fresh air.

But I am not pre-ordering the game as I don't like pre-ordering and didn't recommend.
