Obsidian’s next game is a first-person RPG called The Outer Worlds

1 min read

Outer Worlds

If Fallout 76 was a case study in what not to do a revered franchise, then Obsidian’s next game may be the post-apocalypse rush that fans have been craving. Single-player! RPG mechanics! Guns! And best of all, it’s set in SPA-ACE! A first-person shooter in a horrible universe that has seen capitalism run amok and infect numerous other planets, The Outer Worlds mixes the harsh materialism of society with a somewhat funny look at the future.

Here’s the reveal trailer for it, hot out of the Game Awards 2018 oven:

The Outer Worlds will be published by Take Two’s new company Private Division, which will focus on pushing out games that a decent budget which sits somewhere between the indie and AAA space. So sort of like AA, but they won;t come bail you out of a jam if you crash your car into a ditch again. You can expect to see The Outer Worlds on PC, Xbox One and PS4, as Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Obsidian was done on a deal that still honours existing contracts. Neat!

    Does anyone else see an influence of No Man’s Sky on the style?

    Pushing the whole “we made the best Fallouts” a bit too much there. NV was not as good as people remember. Fallout 2 was the best so … okay.

    Still this looks good. I will be keeping an eye on it.

      Well not to forget the first Fallout, they dreamt up the idea and combining it with the Wasteland universe.

      Also keep in mind that New Vegas was developed in an insane 12 months.

      Just wish they could bag some of the original Fallout writers or Mr Stackpole himself (probably the greatest SW , along with Zahn and Battletech novel writer)

    Fallout 3: “Where’s my dad?!”
    Fallout 4: “Where’s my son?!”
    Fallout 76: “Where’s my refund!!?”

    To this… glimmer.. of hope for the future. I want, but I’m not sure now that Micro$oft owns Obsidian. I so want this to be good. Let’s hope.
