    The Outer Worlds - Obsidian and OG Fallout guys give Bethesda the middle finger



    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.

    Steam page is up too with some more screenshots and the dialogue interface.

    Borderlands meets New Vegas? Could be good.

    They need to work on those character animations though.

    If you have to list so many entirely games you're just being obtuse on purpose and might as well just stick to the genre.

    Are we going to have another bout of fuckwits going REEEE CARTOONS?

    I guess so.

    Is that creation engine? Using that engine to make a working game would be like alpha trolling.

    Nah it's UE4 afaik.

    Which should be fun since it should also be easily moddable but in entirely different ways.

    I should probably point out that the main two dudes in charge of this are two guys who were crucial to and made the Fallout and Arcanum games. There are all the reasons in the universe to be hyped about this tbh.

    Also RIP Troika.

    That was some very pointed "we see you fucked up Fallout, let us have a try" banter in the trailer

    Interested even if the setting isn't one I'm really into

    Please be as good as the trailer promises. If it is as good it will be a buy at full price.

    Trailer is a master piece / middle finger to Todd.

    Some more info: Obsidian's The Outer Worlds blends Firefly and Fallout into a bold, open-ended sci-fi RPG



    Only thing i'm sad about is it's first person only, wish it could do both like beth games. :<

    U wot?

    It was a quip regarding the ambiance and looks. And regarding the fact that it gives off a generic vibe of mashing several influences together without having a distinct own personality. Imo.

    Could throw Rage in there as potential influence as well. No clue what you mean with "reeee cartoons" btw.

    I know, i'm calling it a dumb comment pmuch.

    The cartoons bit is what usually happens with any cartoony bright visuals game and nerds.

    I don't even think that it looks "cartoony".

    edit: I think that in the end my problem is (in general, not with this game in particular) is the prevalence of the Unreal Engine.
