Fallout creators and Obsidian reveal new game The Outer Worlds

Obsidian Reveals The Outer Worlds At The Game Awards

There was a time when Obsidian worked on the Fallout series - back with Fallout: New Vegas - and if Fallout 76 isn't scratching your itch, then here's something you can look forward to instead.

Not much more was said during the awards that can't be gleaned from the trailer, but Cain confirmed that the game is single-player only and set on the edge of the colonised galaxy, where giant corporations are abusing their position and seemingly holding cryogenically frozen colonists as hostages.

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.

The tweet, which you can see below, takes a screen cap from The Outer World's new Twitter account. As you explore a space colony, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds.

One such game was The Outer Worlds, Obsidian's latest RPG. Exploring the far reaches of space, you'll encounter different factions, all of which are competing for power. Despite Obsidian recently becoming a Microsoft first-party studio, this game will continue to be published by Take-Two's Private Division and will be a multi-platform release for PC, Xbox One and PS4. "In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable".
