Microsoft may have recently purchased Obsidian, but their latest game, The Outer Worlds, will be not be exclusively on Xbox One. That’s a really good thing, because the first trailer, shown at The Game Awards, revealed a game that’s funny, fun to play, and gorgeous to look at. This is The Outer Worlds, developed by the original creators of Fallout and Fallout New Vegas!
In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. 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.
