    The Outer Worlds



    The Outer Worlds is the new game from the makers of Fallout New Vegas. It's out today. You can play it on PC or XBOX One using Game pass, which is £1 for the first month on PC, seems a bargain.

    The Outer Worlds is a new single-player sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. As you explore a space colony, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.





    Few of us are going to be playing this so figured we could have a thread. I'll be starting Saturday morning. Can't wait!

    I will definitely be playing it at some point and I hope it's ace but finishing Heaven's Vault, getting Disco Elysium and staving off the urge to replay Mass Effect must come first.

    I'd give the actual game a go first. It's really not a 'vast open world' thing like the Bethesda games.

    Hard is so fucking hard.

    Not sure anything has ever turned me off from a space exploration game faster than "an open world, just a small ish one"

    The video review I watched suggests it's a fairly directed experience in an open space rather than a Ubi-esque collect-all-the-icons style open world. More an immersive sim in a big spacerather than a Bethesda-y sprawling affair.

    I am curious to see how Obsidian have got on. As far as I can see they got a massively free ride over Fallout New Vegas, with anything wrong with it (and fuck me was there a lot wrong with it) being Bethesda's fault.

    I mean they've done a lot more stuff with a lot more polish since their 'flawed gem' days.

    And to be fair making anything in Bethesda's game engine must be a bit silk purse / sow's ear.

    That's good considering it's not a space exploration game.

    So we gonna act like there's no chance for large scale exploration in a fuckin space colony? That's the route we're taking?

    Given that space colonies are entirely made up then yeah, I reckon that's a distinct possibility.

    I'll wait for this to be tidied up (read: the inevitable first expansion that finishes the game) before jumping in but it does look quite good so far.

    There's a distinct possibility that a space game has no chance of large scale exploration but not the other way around?

    It's fucking space. "Space" is literally in the name. Vast open area is literally implied by the name of it alone.

    Explain how "colony" implies a linear story line with no room for exploration.

    Is this shit supposed to be funny for ya'll or something? I'm trying to understand the rush to be as pedantically obtuse and pretentious as possible?

    Like we're getting all high and mighty because someone saw a game called "The Outer Worlds", developed by the people who made Fallout New Vegas, read how you "explore a space colony" and was then taken aback that someone seemingly described it in the same linear format that Final Fantasy XIII suffered from.

    Very strange behavior but go off, sis.

    You did dive in nut deep with a bit of a moist comment. Own it instead of flapping your ballsack in the wind.

    Or maybe read five minutes of a review, which would've been more productive than this mess.

    Or, perhaps, "Oh it's more of a borderlands type shooter than fallout, actually." instead of "Well look at how fucking uppity I can be about video games!" when someone takes a passing interest!

    A dios fuckin mio you people.

    Mike can you keep the private thoughts about the game to PM and leave this for the correct purpose of bickering about semantics?

    Thanks.

    I have bought the game and I think I will be able to play it in about 2 days on this hotel wifi.

    Can't wait to explore space.

    I never seem to have enough hacking materials

    Also, I fought some primals today. The first fight almost went very badly as both my companions were downed and I almost joined them. Second time I had a much better weapon though.

    Accidentally set my companions on a guard near a door I wanted to hack as I thought an objective was behind it. It wasn't and as my standing with the place was already bad it meant everyone wanted to kill me. Had to roll back to an auto save.
