The Outer Worlds Released

The Outer Worlds is now available for Windows on the Epic Games Store, offering a new single-player, sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment. Here's the Official Launch Trailer which debuted last week, and we posted a review roundup earlier this week. This press release has some developer quotes: "When we set out to create a new RPG universe for players to explore, meaningful player choice was at the core of everything we wanted to build," said Tim Cain, co-game director at Obsidian. "The Outer Worlds is our love letter to fans who want to role play as any character they’d like, whether it’s a hero, a villain, or even Leonard Boyarsky." Here's some of what it says about the game:
In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation after drifting in space for seventy years on a lost colonist ship, the Hope. Here at the edge of the galaxy, corporations control all aspects of life in Halcyon, and they are hiding a dark secret that could destroy the colony. As you explore multiple, distinct locations in the game’s vibrant world, you will encounter various factions, and meet a host of multi-faceted characters who may offer assistance in your missions. But choose carefully, as the actions and choices you make will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. Your choices affect not only the game’s narrative, but your character progression, companion stories, and different endgame scenarios.
