The Outer Worlds gets some gameplay and a release date

Developers Obsidian Studios and Private Division gave us another look at The Outer Worlds, and even handed down a release date for us to chew on.  Before we get to that, though, here’s a little bit on what The Outer Worlds is about:

The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. 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.

I’m a HUGE fan of Fallout: New Vegas, so it’ll be great to get back to a higher quality of writing.  We have an appointment to see this one up close and personal, so stay tuned for some hands-on time at E3.

Oh…and about that release date — you won’t have to wait long as it’s coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 25th, 2019.
