Reviews for The Outer Worlds will starting hitting the web next week, on the 22nd October.The latest role-playing game from veteran studio Obsidian is supposed to be a lot like Fallout: New Vegas, only set in space. Sounds like a fantastic concept on paper, and the developer should have the chops to pull it off, but you'll obviously have to wait until next Tuesday to read our verdict.
The Outer Worlds hasn't been without its controversies. For starters, it's an Epic Games Store exclusive at launch on PC -- a reveal which, as you can imagine, resulted in quite the backlash from Steam users. Much more recently, reports said that the game would not be enhanced at all on PS4 Pro, supposedly due to the deal Obsidian has in place with Xbox. For those out of the loop, the studio was snapped up by Microsoft earlier this year.
Fortunately, the aforementioned reports turned out to be inaccurate. Obsidian clarified that The Outer Worlds will boast a higher resolution on Sony's supercharged machine, although it won't hit 4K.
Still, we think it's difficult not to be excited for The Outer Worlds, especially if you're a fan of role-playing. Hopefully the game lives up to expectations when it launches a few days after the review embargo, on the 25th October.
Will you be picking it up? Maybe you're planning on waiting for the reviews? Explore the final frontier in the comments section below.
looking forward to this game even though it will be buggy ride on launch.
I have a feeling this will turn out to be one of those games that feels dated because it's trying so hard to be something else. Hope I'm wrong, though.
i'll be waiting for a bit before picking this up, i wanna make sure as many of the numerous bugs we know it will have is sorted first
As it's on Gamepass I have no reason not to get it on day one but I would have done anyway, I'm a big fan of Fallout games (not that one 😉) and so I'm looking forward to this one
I have gamepass ultimate so I’ll try it out on pc.
Maybe i will get it next year im not really in a hurry it looka fun though.
Watched a good few gameplay videos on YouTube and it seems fine probably be a few bugs but nothing game breaking, the only reason new Vegas was buggy was it was a rushed project there's a good video explaining that. Most of their other games are decent day one so I wouldn't flip out just yet.
I am intrigued by this. It looks like a nice change of pace from my usual rotation of games.
@darksoul77 Obsidian gets a bad rap for New Vegas. Like you mentioned, it was rushed (beyond Obsidian's control) and let's not forget that the team had to get the whole thing running on Bethesda's awful engine. Fallout 3 was a mess to begin with, and New Vegas was an even more complex game — no wonder it had issues.
I think that this (and every game) that launches near the 8th november, won't have a great reception. At least on PS4..
Why people desperate as f*ck for this game. C'mon guys, where the all veteran New Vegas players? I have high hopes from the day one when they first announce it and I bet it's gonna be great fun to play. If it was one of the Ubisoft crappy games people would have been on hype train by now. So sad to see new generation gamers have left without good taste in games.
