About The Outer Worlds

About this game

Developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Private Division.

Taking part in an alternate universe in the year 2355 in the Halcyon System, take control of The Stranger (otherwise known as "the unknown variable") as you board a colony ship called Hope on an expedition to Halcyon. After something goes awry, 60 years pass instead of the expected 10. Take control of The Stranger in Obsidian Entertainment's — the minds behind Fallout: New Vegas — newest award-winning first-person title!

Your Choices Affect the Story

Approach the corporate-driven Halcyon System your way and affect the way the story unfolds. Your choices will affect numerous aspects of your time in The Outer Worlds, including which characters join you and the story development, but your companions, end-game scenarios, and even character build!

Perfectly Flawed

Take control of The Stranger, a character that starts off fine in nature but slowly grows flawed as The Outer World tracks your experiences... and what you aren't good at doing. Get a flaw from an assortment of 14 according to your playstyle — such as Plasma Weakness, Herpetophobia, Paranoid, Robophobia, and more — but also get a perk point to help you progress your build. This is an entirely optional system, however, so you can reject all forms of phobias that you'll unlock.

Assemble a Crew

Meet several characters as you explore the Halcyon System, each with their own personalities, abilities, and even missions! Embark on quests to see their motivations come to a completion and help them achieve their goals!

Embark on a Journey Across Halcyon

Explore numerous key areas in Halcyon, the colony at the edge of the galaxy owned by the Halcyon Holdings Corporate Board. Find your ship, assemble a crew, and go on an adventure across numerous settlements, space stations, and numerous other locations scattered throughout this massive world!

Amazing game, probably the closest we'll get to a new Fallout: New Vegas.

Staff Review
The developers behind Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity bring you another action-packed RPG, set in a sci-fi future. Your actions throughout will dictate which ending you encounter in this vast world filled with side-quests, companions and plenty of combat. If you enjoyed Obsidian's take on the Fallout series, or you're just looking for another RPG to sink your teeth into, be sure to give this game a go!
