The Game Awards: The Outer Worlds Trailer Out-Fallouts Fallout

Obsidian finally offered players a real look at their upcoming sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds.

Tonight, at The Video Game Awards, Obsidian, the developers of Fallout: New Vegas, premiered the trailer for their upcoming sci-fi game, The Outer Worlds — a single-player, first-person sci-fi RPG.

The trailer starts with the player’s character waking up from stasis in an unfamiliar place. It’s filled with quirky characters living in a vibrant world (or worlds since we’re talking about a galaxy here).

The player will find themselves caught up in a huge conspiracy that threatens the galaxy, and they must deal with various factions fighting for control. The story’s still a little hazy, but the game essentially looks like Fallout in space. 

The Outer Worlds is built upon the player choice, with each decision made affecting how the story plays out.

Already, YouTube commenters are looking at this as not only a spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas, but some have declared it the game that will “rescue us” from Fallout 76. Others are noting it’s as if Fallout had a baby with Borderlands.

Even without comparing the game to anything else, it looks stunning. I know I can’t wait to get my grubby hands on it.

The Outer Worlds does not currently have a release date, but it will be coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. 

Obsidian was recently acquired by Microsoft.
