Obsidian announces The Outer Worlds, a true open-ended sci-fi RPG

The Makers Of FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS Are Taking Us To THE OUTER WORLDS

It also seems to feature companions and first-person shooter combat that again doesn't seem all that dissimilar to Fallout. Look for it sometime in the next year, as it's confirmed to release in "calendar 2019".

Ultimately, you'll decide what sort of a character you'll be and the path you'll carve out in The Outer Worlds' "player-driven" story.

"The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division".

The game is not an open-world RPG, but rather a series of interconnected, smaller worlds and locations.

Fallout creators and Obsidian reveal new game The Outer Worlds
Geoff Keighley and Obsidian teased the game's announcement last week with the tagline, "Worlds Will Change". In it, you are a part of a colonist ship heading to the far reaches of outer space.

Kendrick Lamar, Drake & Cardi B Lead 2019 Grammy Nominations

Trump Nominates New Attorney General
Barr would also oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election. A month after Jeff Session's resignation , Donald Trump may have a top choice for his next attorney general.

The Outer Wilds launches on Xbox One, PC and PS4 next year.

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. In theory, this should incentivize deeper role-playing.

The creators of Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and most recently Pillars of Eternity are getting ready to announce their latest RPG today, with a Game Awards 2018 announcement imminent. For my money, the most exciting one is The Outer Worlds, a new venture from the original architects of Fallout; if you've played Fallout 76 then you probably have a good idea why this return to form is welcome news.

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