The Outer Worlds’ newest trailer touts all of the facilities of dystopia
Robots can do No. 2 in The Outer Worlds. At the very least, that (at zero:42 above) is what caught with me after watching this three-minute, tongue-in-cheek setup for Obsidian’s sci-fi role-playing recreation, launching on the finish of subsequent month.
This latest trailer involves us from PAX West 2019. Within the context of a recruitment advert for the low-to-no-standards Halcyon Colony, viewers are launched to the environs and gameplay alternatives inside The Outer Worlds. If the world of Terra 2 appears shabby and bleak, wait’ll you see the “evenly terraformed” (nice euphemism) Monarch.
We’re additionally uncovered to fight types and character varieties, plus ideas corresponding to “robophobia” within the the rest of this testimonial. Stepping again for a sec, all of it strikes me as a mix of the colours of Borderlands, the structure of BioShock, the planning and zoning ordinances of Bulletstorm, and a few of the gameplay methods of Fallout. And I used to be (hell, nonetheless am) an enormous fan of all of these video games, so I imply all of that as a praise.
Obsidian’s RPG bona fides want no corroboration, and we’ve been itching to see them revisit dystopia ever since Fallout: New Vegas practically a decade in the past. The Outer Worlds raised eyebrows from the second it was introduced in December at The Sport Awards 2018. And regardless that Microsoft purchased Obsidian the month earlier than, it is going to launch Oct. 24 on PlayStation four, Home windows PC and Xbox One. For the most recent concerning the recreation, peruse our interview with designer Brian Heins from August.
