The Outer Worlds - 19 Minutes of New Gameplay Footage
Travel to the edge of the galaxy next month when Obsidian Entertainment's next RPG game The Outer Worlds launches on October 25th. The team at Obsidian are crafting a new rich story driven RPG that'll be a little like Fallout in space. Players will be able to build a character and explore a massive open world filled with NPC's, as well as certain dangers. Team up with companions who can join your crew and fight alongside them as they assist you in your journey. In some brand new gameplay footage from IGN we get a taste of the questing with 19 minutes of new gameplay in the Stellar Bay area.
Obsidian themselves are known for creating rich worlds and deep RPG experiences, so The Outer Worlds looks to continue that trend by giving us a fantastic Sci-Fi RPG and luckily it's not far away as it arrives next month!
The Outer Worlds Features
- The player-driven story RPG: In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios.
- You can be flawed, in a good way: New to The Outer Worlds is the idea of flaws. A compelling hero is made by the flaws they carry with them. While playing The Outer Worlds, the game tracks your experience to find what you aren't particularly good at. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately. This optional approach to the game helps you build the character you want while exploring Halcyon.
- Lead your companions: During your journey through the furthest colony, you will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations, and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals, or turn them to your own ends.
- Explore the corporate colony: Halcyon is a colony at the edge of the galaxy owned and operated by a corporate board. They control everything... except for the alien monsters left behind when the terraforming of the colony’s two planets didn’t exactly go according to plan. Find your ship, build your crew, and explore the settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.
