There’s nothing like a good surprise. Which is why when The Outer Worlds, a brand new roleplaying game set in a brand new science-fiction universe from an iconic studio known for top-notch roleplaying games was announced out of nowhere, there was a genuine air of excitement.
Following The Outer Worlds announcement at The Game Awards at the tail of end 2018, there was a collective double-take as all the pieces came together. Obsidian Entertainment, best known as the creators of little RPG darlings like Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic 2, and the Pillars of Eternity series, is the driving force behind this new roleplaying game. Excellent.
