The Outer Worlds PS4 PlayStation 4

The Outer Worlds was only announced a few days ago, and it's already looking like a pretty promising game from Obsidian Entertainment. The idea of a Fallout meets Mass Effect sci-fi RPG is rather exciting, and from the little we know so far, it's hitting all the right notes. It seems the developer is keen to get any niggling concerns out of the way too, as it's now confirmed the game won't feature microtransactions at all.

Speaking with GameStar, Obsidian's Timothy Cain said, "There are no microtransactions in the game. You buy it once and then enjoy it forever." You can't get much clearer than that.

This isn't a huge surprise, but it will still be good news for those looking forward to pouring dozens of hours into this stylish single player RPG. Are you glad in-game purchases are absent from The Outer Worlds? Choose your dialogue options wisely in the comments below.
