Hero? Villain? Lunatic? Your decisions drive the outcome in this immersive single-player sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division
New York, NY – June 10, 2019 – Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment today announced The Outer Worlds is now available for preorder and will launch on October 25, 2019 across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, on the PlayStation®4 system, and on Windows PC*.
From the renowned RPG developer, Obsidian Entertainment, comes The Outer Worlds, a dark and witty player-driven story set in a colony at the farthest reaches of the galaxy. As the cold, firm grasp of corporate bureaucracy starts to unravel due to one unknown visitor – you – the character that you decide to become – will determine how the story unfolds. Your choices will affect the way the story develops, as well as your character progression, companion stories, and endgame scenarios.
“When I found myself contractually obligated to work with Leonard, we decided to make the game we always wanted,” said Tim Cain, Co-Game Director at Obsidian. “A game where player agency matters, and allows you to approach any situation however you’d like. Because it’s your story. And, because we haven’t figured out how to contractually oblige you to play how we want you to. Yet.”
The Outer Worlds presents you with a variety of options to play through the game. With an array of ranged and melee sci-fi weaponry at your disposal, you can also solve issues with good, old-fashioned spoken diplomacy, or even leadership-driven delegation to your companions.
“All kidding aside,” said Leonard Boyarsky, Co-Game Director at Obsidian, “Tim is truly honored to be working with me again on a game that focuses not only on a player-driven story, but also on establishing a new universe that is fun for players to explore with depth, humor, and corporate approved action.”
“Obsidian has such a great history when it comes to creating exceptional single-player RPGs,” said Allen Murray, Vice President of Production. “The Outer Worlds is unmistakably an Obsidian game, delivering an experience rich with dark humor, interesting characters, and plenty of player agency.”
