So...this happened.

 

Looks like Obsidian is taking their FO:NV ideas to the stars. Cannot wait.

 

Feels like Fallout meets Bioshock meets Borderlands. I'm so in.

 

Steam Page is already up with screenshots!

The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. 

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. 

 

Key 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.

I'm not like 20-30 hours into Outer Worlds and I'm absolutely loving the game. Its so good in so many ways and once you leave the first planet it really opens up with things to do all over the system. Very very fun and with a very accurate depiction of Corporate over-reach.

I really liked this short and sweet cRPG by Obsidian called 'Tyranny'. They definitely know how to write a great story and create immersive worlds. I'm holding off for a sale simply because I've got too much on the go at the moment. Either way, looking forward to getting lost in this world.
