About this game

Content Rating: Mature


In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it.

In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.
