In addition to several other titles, such as Dauntless and The Cycle, Epic Games announced two more Epic Store exclusives. Outer Worlds and Ancestors the Humankind Odyssey were announced by Epic to be new exclusives – although there is a caveat in the case of The Outer Worlds. The Outer Worlds will also be available on the Windows 10 store, along with the Epic Games Store for purchasing the game.
The Outer Worlds, a single-player, first-person science fiction RPG title, has the player journeying through space. However, during their journey, the player becomes lost in transit aboard a colonist ship. The protagonist wakes up from a decades-long slumber just in time to throw a wrench into a conspiracy that threatens the very existence of the Halcyon colony.
In Ancestors the Humankind Odyssey, the player explores Africa 10 million years in the past. Taking place at the dawn of humanity, the player must explore, expand, and evolve to become a successful species. Evolving through multiple generations, players must pick and choose traits to pass on to future generations.
