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.

Those expecting a straight-up spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas might be surprised by Obsidian's more contained and old-fashioned approach to science fiction, but stick with this unashamedly talkative tragic comedy, and you'll discover one of the smartest games of the year. The Outer Worlds marks Obsidian operating at the top of its game, and a strong foundation for a new franchise that seems destined for greatness.
The Outer Worlds is outstanding. This epic space adventure is teeming with exciting locations, missions to undertake, characters to speak to, and gives the player plenty of customization control. You can take on the adventure as a murderous anti-hero, a paragon of truth, or just lie and cheat your way through everything. With the exception of tiny technical problems and a bland protagonist The Outer Worlds rarely stumbles.
