Just in case you haven’t jumped on The Outer Worlds train, Obsidian has one last trailer to get you on board. The trailer asks one simple question: “What is the Outer Worlds?”
The trailer answers that question to some bobbing music. It is “all the best hallmarks of an Obsidian RPG”(according to IGN). It is an exploration of the space frontier where corrupt corporations control everything. It has a shrink ray. There you go. Now you don’t have to watch the trailer.
The Outer Worlds, is a single-player RPG that released on October 25 by the original creators of Fallout. Here is what the creators have to say about their game, according to a press release.
“In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation after drifting in space for seventy years on a lost colonist ship, the Hope. Here at the edge of the galaxy, corporations control all aspects of life in Halcyon, and they are hiding a dark secret that could destroy the colony. As you explore multiple, distinct locations in the game’s vibrant world, you will encounter various factions, and meet a host of multi-faceted characters who may offer assistance in your missions. But choose carefully, as the actions and choices you make will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. Your choices affect not only the game’s narrative, but your character progression, companion stories, and different endgame scenarios.”
The Outer Worlds saw huge critical praise among its release with almost perfect scores across the board. We gave it a 4 out of 5 stars saying it has great freedom of choice and exploration. The game is available on Xbox One X (including game pass), PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. It will also release on the Switch in 2020.
Now I can get back into The Outer Worlds and try to be a goody-two-shoes but be disappointed because every decision is not so black and white.
