Summary

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. 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.

I finished The Outer Worlds wanting more, eager to jump back into the world to see extra things. It's not a short game, but it's one packed with such a steady stream of wonderful characters to meet, interesting places to explore, and meaningful, multi-layered quests to solve, that it didn't feel like there was any room to get tired of it. I wanted to rewind the clock and do everything in a completely different way. The Outer Worlds is consistently compelling throughout, and it's a superb example of how to promote traditional RPG sensibilities in a sharp, modern experience.

The Outer Worlds seems to bring everything Obsidian wanted from Fallout: New Vegas to be but couldn’t reach due to the pressing development time frame, limited tech of that time, or other reasons. It brings the traditional gameplay and story presentation, with the familiar wit and humor of Fallout. It even brings a similar story of how humanity affects its environment, but it swirls it all in a new and thrilling story that is so rare in games these days. This title is a two-thumbs up from us!
