Outer Worlds is a new RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and was released just last Friday.
As a gamer and fan of Obsidian I did get Outer Worlds when it released as have been playing it every day. And I love it. It is so much fun to play and I don’t know how far I am in the story line, but there is still so much to do and explore. It is also amazing to know that the studio that produced Outer Worlds also produced Fallout: New Vegas, but in space.
The story of Outer Worlds, without spoilers, is that from the alternate future and timeline of Fallout megacorporations have begun colonizing alien planets. Your character was going to be one of the colonists in the start, but when in cryosleep the ship you came on, Hope, got lost. About 60 years later the corporations found the ship but kept it a secret. Fortunately a mad scientist wakes you from hibernation to get your help to save everyone else on Hope and find out the true nature of the corporations.
Thankfully you are not alone in the fight with the corporations. You gain a weird and badass crew to that becomes your family. There is Parvati (your mechanic), Vicar Max (ex-priest), Felix (newbie outlaw), Ellie (your doctor), Nyoka (a guide and hunter), SAM (ex cleaning machine turned killing machine), and ADA (your ship AI).
Apart from your crew there are multiple factions, corporate or not, that you can help and become allies with. The main ones are the Groundbreaker, Iconoclasts, Monarch Stellar Industries, Sublight Salvage & Shipping, and The Board. Others you can also help along the way are Auntie Cleo’s, Deserters, and Spacer’s Choice. Now you should also know that you can gain allies or become enemies with any of the factions, so be careful.
Outer Worlds is available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and PC
