Now this looks really good, least from a trailer aspect. I take it for those that like fallout new vegas should like this. Obsidian Entertainment I think just hit a homerun with this title and if they keep refining it over the next few months and release it Q4 next year it should be really solid. I think Starfield is in trouble 😉 Bethesda now knows what happens to your reputation when you release something unfinished... all Obsidian needs to do is concentrate on quality and the game will sell itself.

Bethesda contracted Obsidian to make Fallout NV in like 1.5yrs and that game is one of the most liked in the whole series, and Bethesda shafted Obsidian on their bonus... So I hope Obsidian is very successful with this new IP.

Reminds me of the Precursors, they also have a Steam page https://store.steampowered.com/app/578650/The_Outer_Worlds/ with a bit about the game.

Two planets are mentioned and my guess would be that the gameplay arear on the planet would be a map rather than a full planet map, no mention of any vehicles or aircraft, but we may see something later about that.

It also mentions a ship and crew and my guess would be a Mass Effect type ship where you don't fly the ship and it more of a player hub. I know I would prefer a flyable ship and full scale solar system with the planets, moons and stations in it but I don't think we will get anything like that, more likely to be Mass Effect/ Fallout mash up.

Edit just spotted this on YouTube, 14 minutes of gameplay, also some detail from PC Gamer website https://www.pcgamer.com/obsidians-the-outer-worlds-blends-firefly-and-fallout-into-a-bold-open-ended-sci-fi-rpg/ looks I was right about the ship and wrong about the map as it looks like it will be more linear than open world.

And they are off to the Epic games store as well, with the Steam release some time in 2020 https://store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=578650

🙁

Damn Epic, what is Steam doing? I cannot blame Obsidian they are just trying to get paid and it will release a year later on all other store types.

I personally like all my games in one spot and I don't intend on changing for 1-2 games, especially since they will all be on steam eventually. I guess I will just wait, I have over 500 games on steam that I need to play any way 🙂

Why devs not just release it everywhere.... and let the people choose where they buy it. This strong arm tactics that Epic is doing is kinda low in my opinion and I hope Valve has a answer for this stuff or Epic will continue to own the big titles.

I was looking forward to The Outer Worlds, but now I will just wait.... Which might be the better decision any way, when it hits steam it will be all patched up and ready to play.

Is it just me or is the gameplay demo a bit underwhelming?

Agreed... It was more MEH for me... I can definitely wait a year while it sits on the Epic store 🙂 Maybe my mind will change depending on when they show off what we can do in space and the mechanics around it all.

Looks pretty much like your standard FPS, just with a sci-fi overcoat.

One thing which annoys me about FPS games is when you have a city and all you have is about 5 npc standing around. you never get the hustle and bustle you see in a 3rd person game like GTA.

Very true and good point, thats why Cyberpunk 2077 looks sooo good, that world looks alive.

Games out 25th of October and I read that it's no longer an Epic exclusive as it's going to be on Microsoft new service, but still won't be on Steam until next year.

Meh would be my response to this, although having said that I will probably pick it up in a year or two.

🙂 Me too, in a year or two this should be a solid game with mods and patches. But it is looking good so far, I do want to see more combat in all aspects.
