Outer Wilds and What Remains of Edith Finch Get Next-Gen Upgrades

During today's Annapurna Interactive showcase, we got two surprising upgrade announcements to two beloved games: Outer Wilds and What Remains of Edith Finch.

First up, Outer Wilds is getting a 60fps upgrade on Xbox Series X, S, and PS5 that's coming September 15, and the upgrade is free if you own the game already. Developer Mobius Digital also confirmed that the game is still planned for Switch at some point in the future, but haven't given a date for that just yet.

Meanwhile, What Remains of Edith Finch is getting a 60fps upgrade and 4k on Xbox Series X and PS5, and that update is not only free, it's also available today.

Both of these are pleasant surprise upgrades for two widely acclaimed games. We called Edith Finch "one of the finest magical-realism stories in all of games" back when we reviewed it on launch in 2017. OuterWilds was similarly beloved in 2019, and we called it "a true adventure in ways most games never achieve." Its DLC released late last year, Echoes of the Eye, was a "wonderful return" to the system of the original.
