  • The Outer Worlds- more intentionally funny than Fallout 76

Back in 2017, sources told TweakTown that Fallout creator Tim Cain was working on a new RPG for New Vegas developer Obsidian, and that it'd be the studio's answer to the Fallout franchise.

It looks like a Fallouty No Man's Sky, and I am all about it.

In amidst a host of new game announcements - Far Cry: New Dawn, Crash Team Racing, and Dragon Age 4, to name only a few - Obsidian grabbed our attention with the announcement of a new, sci-fi RPG titled The Outer Worlds. So basically - as a fan - I'm saying that Obsidian's new IP is the game of the games that we're never going to get all wrapped into one conveniently packaged RPG experience! We might not be getting a New Vegas 2, but this seems to be the next best thing, or even better - an all-new property from Obsidian and Private Division, the new indie publishing arm of huge publisher 2K.


A two-minute trailer released by Obsidian gives us our first look at The Outer Worlds universe. As you explore a space colony, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds.

Awakening from hibernation on a colonist ship lost during transit to Halcyon, you'll find yourself in the furthest colony from Earth right at the edge of the galaxy, embroiled in a deep conspiracy that's threatening to destroy everything.

The Outer Worlds will be out in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
