The Outer Steppes are the first zone in the Burning Hells of Act IV in which you can engage in combat. The weakest monsters in Hell are found in this zone - if 'weak' is the right description. It is connected by a long stairwell to the Pandemonium Fortress, and may be considered part of it.
There isn't much of interest in the Outer Steppes; it's mostly a barren wasteland populated by minor hellspawn and unfortunate souls forever damned into unholy servitude. There's no waypoint in the Steppes, nor is there any quest associated with the area. There's only one exit leading in to the Plains of Despair.
