Obsidian's The Outer Worlds revealed

Obsidian's The Outer Worlds revealed

The new project from Obsidian Entertainment is without a surprise a RPG. Published by Take Two's new label Private Division, The Outer Worlds is set to release in 2019 for PC and consoles. With a development spearheaded by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, the creators of Fallout, the game takes place on the edge of the galaxy where the main character is in the middle of a conspiracy that could make the corporate colony collapse. First details and screens inside, and maybe the trailer in good quality at a later time.



Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment Announce The Outer Worlds

In a corporate colony spiraling towards collapse at the furthest reaches of the galaxy, you are the unplanned variable. What path will you choose?

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment today announced The Outer Worlds. Co-game directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, original creators of Fallout, have reunited for this new single-player RPG from the renowned team at Obsidian, developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the Pillars of Eternity franchise. The Outer Worlds will be available in calendar 2019, during Take-Two’s fiscal year 2020 (ending March 31, 2020) on PC, PlayStation®4 system, and across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X.

In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship lost in transit to its destination on the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the 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.

“It's great to be working with Tim again. It's rare to find a co-creator who compliments your skill set so well – Tim's great at the things I'm not and vice versa,” said Leonard Boyarsky, co-game director at Obsidian. “But what we both seem to have a knack for is making in-depth single-player RPGs where the player can define their character and play the game any way they choose.”

“There's something very special about the combination of my lighter humor and Leonard's darker take on things. It affects everything in the game - the setting, the characters, the dialogs,” added Tim Cain, co-game director at Obsidian. “Plus, we have a great team here at Obsidian, and we're making sure The Outer Worlds delivers what players want from a new RPG universe.”

“Obsidian’s pedigree in creating excellent single-player RPGs that empower meaningful player agency in combination with the characteristic dark humor of Tim and Leonard is second to none,” said Michael Worosz, SVP and head of Private Division. “With The Outer Worlds, the team is crafting an incredible new sci-fi RPG that celebrates the world-building and player-driven storytelling the studio is known for in fresh and exciting ways.”

The Outer Worlds will be available in calendar 2019, during Take-Two’s fiscal year 2020 (ending March 31, 2020) for PS4™ system, Xbox One, and PC. The Outer Worlds is not yet rated by the ESRB.

Loved everything I saw of this game, the art style, humor and the little bit of gameplay shown. This is definitely a spiritual successor to Fallout, which is great since Bethesda probably killed the franchise unfortunately.

With The Outer Worlds, Rage 2 and Far Cry: New Dawn, post-apocalyptic FPS games are thriving atm. Gearbox better make a great Borderlands 3, because the competition won't make it easy for them like when Borderlands 2 launched.

Looks far more interesting than The new Rage and Far Cry games. It has known vibes but it's way less generic than the other stuff.
Obsidian comes to fill the void left by Bethesda's misdirections...

Also, spacey stuff look less boring than post apoc in general.

tmw Obsidian shows Bethesda how to make a real Fallout game, and not only a Fallout game, but a Fallout game IN SPAAAAAAAACE.

This came at the perfect time seeing as fallout 76 is garbage and everyone just wanted it to be single player.

If it's a huge success it's going to be interesting to see how Take Two Interactive handle it moving forward. They likely will own the IP like in most publishing deals and obsidian is now MS owned so they're out of the picture. Will they just give it to another developer to continue? Maybe MS will buy the IP off Take Two?

Crazy to think that obsidians first potential success in years could be snatched away immediately.

I feel like this game is revenge on Bethesda for the crap they pulled in denying Obsidian their bonus on New Vegas. With proper funding, I hope they will put Bethesda in their place and make a better game than they could even imagine.
