I'm waiting for it to get all the patches it needs and then I will definitely buy it. I love those kind of RPGs (light) and will gladly add it to my games backlog.

Yep--looks good!

It's either a good game, or someone paid a lot of money for good reviews.

I'll see when it comes to Steam and is heavily discounted. Until then patch away at it Obsidian!

Must have been an epic amount of money.

I hope all the dlc will be released by the time it's on Steam, it will make a great purchase then.

Still trying see what this game is really about. Not caring for the wording Disco in a RPG game. Would be really shitty to see JT dancing in this to some dance fever BS

The game is also on MS Store. the new updated beta Store is pretty good now. But at least you got the option of going Microsoft rather then EGS.

My buddy got me that 2 years of Gamepass for cheap thingie awhile ago so I've got this woot. Although I'm a bit confused by their "preload" on the MS Store only being 50MB, seems like the day one patch might be large bwuahah. That has to be an error or something.

So after looking over some reviews this games is basically Fallout but only far better because it isn't made Bethesda

LOL just read the reviews, they read like rage reviews but they score the game well.

"The Outer World's replacement for Fallout's VATS mode, yet lacks that system's strategic orientation and memorable sense of impact, thus ending up as a forgettable gimmick that adds little depth or colour to combat." 4/5

"There's nothing particularly wrong with it" 4/5

"The Outer Worlds adopts the most compelling innovations of modern Fallout games" 9/10 (Is that Fallout 76?, that's the most modern)

"An open world game also has to have open world bugs, right?" 9/10

"The Outer Worlds feels aimless for a long time" 8.5/10

"Combat isn't challenging, and enemies fit into worn categories" 79/100

Play this game however you want. No, really. No 3D RPG has ever felt this wide open, beyond restricting players by way of how you customize your hero's stats. ars

This is the Obsidian game that people have been begging for: one with polish. kotaku

The Outer Worlds is alright, innit. It’s good fun. I bet I’ll play it again, in fact. rps
