Incredible Time Loop Adventure Outer Wilds Could Be Getting DLC
Outer Wilds, the magnificent time-looping adventure game, could be getting DLC titled Echoes of the Eye if a Steam database entry is anything to go by.
As pointed out by Simon Carless on Twitter, SteamDB has scraped an entry for ‘Outer Wilds – Echoes of the Eye’, which is listed with Outer Wilds as a ‘parent’ entry. That points to this being DLC or an expansion, rather than a full sequel. The entry was last updated today, April 29, meaning there’s a chance we’ll see a formal reveal soon.
Although not a formal confirmation, both publisher Annapurna Interactive and developer Mobius Digital have playfully responded to Carless’ tweet:

The Eye is a major location in Outer Wilds, which implies we could be seeing a return to the game’s constantly-resetting solar system – although those who’ve finished the game will know that’s a potentially… complicated idea.
Outer Wilds was one of IGN’s nominees for game of the year for 2019, and we named it the best adventure game of that year. It went onto win numerous awards, including the BAFTA for best game. Needless to say fans, including myself, are very excited at the prospect of more Outer Wilds.
It remains to be seen when we’ll hear more but, given that today’s Ratchet and Clank-focused State of Play broadcast will include updates on two indie games, it could even be fairly soon.
