Obsidian’s New RPG, The Outer Worlds, Looks Better Than Fallout

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is an epic journey through space that feels like Fallout mixed with the self-aware humour of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.

The original creators of Fallout unveiled their brand new single-player RPG made with the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian. Called The Outer Worlds, the newly announced title is an epic, anti-corporate romp through space that looks even better than its post-apocalyptic counterpart.

Announced at The Game Awards, the first two-minute trailer of The Outer Worlds was a refreshing spectacle that showcased everything you’d expect from the developers behind what most people consider the best instalment in the Fallout franchise. Set in a dystopian universe where massive corporations have taken over everything, Obsidian’s newest project is a first-person shooter stuffed with RPG mechanics, NPCs, and weighty choices for you to panic over and muck up.

While the endeavour at the edge of the galaxy looks, feels and evidently plays a lot like Bethesda’s Fallout, the tone is a lot lighter thanks to humorous writing that shares a lot in common with the brilliant Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.

Although Microsoft purchased Obsidian in November, The Outer Worlds is coming to Xbox One, PC and PS4 in 2019 due to the developer’s original contract with publishers Private Division.
