Obsidian's new RPG called Outer Worlds, set in new IP

Obsidian's new RPG called Outer Worlds, set in new IP

You'll be in first-person for the most part, but other in-game systems haven't been shown yet, so we don't know how levelling up works, or how player stats will impact skills.

The annual Game Awards kicked off last night, and it's safe to say that 2019 is looking to be a pretty big year for the industry.

Long-time fans of the Fallout series that were disappointed by Fallout 76 will likely be overjoyed to hear that The Outer Worlds will be a traditional single-player RPG. "It affects everything in the game - the setting, the characters, the dialogs".

Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division revealed their game The Outer Worlds at The Game Awards today with a trailer showing off the new IP. By the trailer's tone, you can tell The Outer Worlds isn't taking itself too seriously: there's poppy music, a mad scientist, and already some of the silliness Fallout designer Tim Cain is known for. However, based on the 15-minute gameplay demo we've seen so far, the environments look plenty open-ended already - or at least, they do a good job giving you the illusion of being open-ended.

Everything in general looks cleaner and more polished in The Outer Worlds, as there presumably hasn't been a nuclear war and two-hundred years of rust in The Outer Worlds.

It'll be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The Outer Worlds is not available for pre-order yet, and it doesn't have a specific release date.
