The Outer Worlds (Obsidian)


Recommended Posts

The press release had some details.


The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division.


In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.


Key Features


The player-driven story RPG: In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios.


You can be flawed, in a good way: New to The Outer Worlds is the idea of flaws. A compelling hero is made by the flaws they carry with them. While playing The Outer Worlds, the game tracks your experience to find what you aren't particularly good at. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately. This optional approach to the game helps you build the character you want while exploring Halcyon.


Lead your companions: During your journey through the furthest colony, you will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations, and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals, or turn them to your own ends.


Explore the corporate colony: Halcyon is a colony at the edge of the galaxy owned and operated by a corporate board. They control everything... except for the alien monsters left behind when the terraforming of the colony’s two planets didn’t exactly go according to plan. Find your ship, build your crew, and explore the settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.


Also this matters to me :lol:



Especially considering how bad Fallout 4s was.

That dialog system  :sweetjesus:


Fallout 4's was awful, loved clicking an option and having my character say something completely different.


Really hated the player character being voiced too, hope they're not going down that route.

:lol: Yay obsidian boo bethesda and all that aside. It looks like a million games that already exist and the dialogue cutscenes are turds shined to perfection.


:lol: Who pissed you off this morning.


:lol: It reads harsher than intended.

Oooh, interest piqued.


Also, I didn't have an issue with FO4's speech thing. Mind you, I had a mod that showed me what the actual lib was, not the random guesswork answers from Bethesda.


But, this looks great! Can't wait.

Can't wait for this. Found myself going into the Epic store page a few times the last weeks just to check the launch date even though I know it :lol:


Will wait 1-2 days after launch before buying though just in case there's any major bugs being reported.
