Kicking off the Microsoft E3 Conference this year is a big announcement for RPG fans! A new trailer for the upcoming title The Outer Worlds was shown, and we have a release date for the title--October 25, 2019. It's just a few months away! Well, unless you're planning to play on Steam... The Outer Worlds will still be releasing for Valve's platform next year.
You can check out the new trailer below:
The Outer Worlds is sure to be exciting, with the trailer showing off the world of Halcyon and the corporate greed that rules it. This is the first bit of information that we've gotten on Obsidian's RPG since its announcement in December.
In case you've forgotten, here's more about The Outer Worlds from the game's Steam page.
- 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.
The Outer Worlds will release on October 25 on the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
