Xbox has begun their E3 Press Conference! Right out of the gate viewers receive more information regarding Obsidian’s next title Outer Worlds.
The teaser video opens revealing details of a post-apocalyptic universe run and governed by corporations. Accept on the outer edges, where a new force has begun to challenge the status quo. The Camera pans back to reveal you, a character interacting with multiple characters.
From the teaser, we are able to determine that players actions will have an impact on the game. After saving a mans life he gives his gun to you. He jokes “I hope this gun will serve you better than it has served me” where the player immediately murders him. It is clear from this trailer player will have an immense amount of power surrounding the choices that are made.
For a bit more context here is the description from Obsidians website “The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, 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.”
We from previous news snippets we know that characters will be able to have major impacts on all characters. Players will be able to go so far as to kill any character in the game. This game looks incredibly interesting! The game will be available on October 25th and will be immediately available on Xbox Game Pass.
