Microsoft is buying Obsidian, but it doesn’t get to publish The Outer Wilds. That means Take-Two’s Private Division may have snatched the jewel from the crown.
Obsidian's new RPG The Outer Worlds is not just sci-fi: it is exuberantly sci-fi. Blood red trees pepper valleys of strange cylindrical rocks and alien shrubs. A spaceship rumbles overhead, coming in for a landing at the nearest spaceport. Rings grander than Saturn's carve an arc across the horizon, and a field of stars shine impossibly bright in the afternoon sky. It's a world I already know I want to explore: the colorful vistas of No Man's Sky, but in an RPG that looks and feels very Fallout, just a million miles away and pre-nuclear armageddon.
Game Informer has published a 15-minute gameplay video of publisher Private Division and developer Obsidian Entertainment’s newly announced sci-fi first-person RPG The Outer Worlds. The outlet has also gone up with its impressions on the title. The Outer Worlds is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. Watch the footage below.
