    The Outer Worlds (PC/PS4/XB1) - Single Player Sci-Fi RPG

    Watch the official announcement trailer for The Outer Worlds, 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.

    Press Release
    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.

    How is no one hyped on this?

    Fallout in Space from New Vegas people.

    I'm hyped, but with how gaming has looked lately, it's a cautious, subdued, low expectations to possibly spare my fragile sanity and heart, hype.

    I just heard about this the other day from Laymen Gaming. I'm hyped. Apparently there will also be no microtransactions as well

    Watched a video this morning on this game and yes, looks incredible. It was a Gamespot video so I got bored of their commentary. Will check out more. But yes, looks fabulous.

    Pretty much all of the footage out there is controlled by Obsidian & Take Two. Looking forward to when these publications actually get a chance to play for it themselves, but in it's current form it's undeniably pretty awesome. New Vegas x Bioshock set in space with a bullet-time VATS system, what's not to love?
