Obsidian unveils sci-fi RPG that could steal Starfield's thunder

As mentioned, Obsidian Entertainment will be there to show off their latest title, but there's also plenty to come from more publishers and developers. Though numerous games revealed at the event were smaller indie titles or "AA" games, they made up for their lower budgets with unique settings, intriguing gameplay mechanics, and pure passion on the part of the developers speaking about them.

A two-minute trailer released by Obsidian gives us our first look at The Outer Worlds universe.

This is the first trailer for The Outer Worlds, a brand-new first-person RPG from Obsidian and Private Division.

The Outer Worlds will be a single-player RPG set on "the frontier of space", according to the trailer's narrator - but a frontier that big-brand corporations have bought out and run for their own financial needs. The Outer Worlds is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2019. Throughout the game, as players fight different monsters and make their way through various non-combat encounters, they can choose to take "Flaws", which hinder their character in some way while providing an extra perk point immediately.

However The Outer Worlds turns out, it may be hard for Bethesda's eventual take on the space RPG not to feel like retreaded ground. Obsidian has announced its upcoming game that will be created by the original Fallout creators.

Microsoft's acquisition of Obsidian last month won't affect The Outer Worlds' release.
