Obsidian and Private Division Announce The Outer Worlds at The Game Awards

In the years since, it's been rumored that Obsidian might release a New Vegas follow-up (New Orleans has been a frequently-rumored location for that apparently non-existent game), but despite all that rumormongering, nothing's happened. "It affects everything in the game - the setting, the characters, the dialogs".

Their new game, The Outer Worlds, was just announced during The Game Awards.

The game is set on a colonised planet far out in the galaxy. Have a look at the trailer below to get a taste of what you can expect from The Outer Worlds.

The game is not an open-world RPG, but rather a series of interconnected, smaller worlds and locations. There's plenty here for everyone, so scroll on down and enjoy to see what's coming in 2019!

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. Unlike Cyberpunk 2077, it doesn't seem like there are any exceptions to that rule in the form of third-person cutscenes or a third-person vehicle camera.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to re-package players in other trades before February's trade deadline. Dekker's short stint in Cleveland ends after nine games, where he averaged 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists per contest.


In it, you play as a colonist taking on megacorps... or not.

"For example, if you continuously find yourself getting into scraps with Raptidons - "vicious space dogs", as PC Gamer describes them - you'll get a pop-up allowing you to take the "Raptiphobia" perk". In theory, this should incentivize deeper role-playing.

Bethesda has yet another new rival as the makers of Fallout: New Vegas reveal the first trailer for their new sci-fi game. Developed by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky (co-creators of the original Fallout), it's basically "Fallout, but in space".

Microsoft's acquisition of Obsidian last month won't affect The Outer Worlds' release.
