The Outer Worlds releases on the 25th of October for all platforms and if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber you can play it day one. There are many great things to be said about the new IP from Obsidian. Check out The Outer Worlds review that have come in.
Gamesradar: 4/5 Stars
“Those expecting a straight-up spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas might be surprised by Obsidian’s more contained and old-fashioned approach to science fiction, but stick with this unashamedly talkative tragic comedy, and you’ll discover one of the smartest games of the year. “
“I finished The Outer Worlds wanting more, eager to jump back into the world to see extra things. It’s not a short game, but it’s one packed with such a steady stream of wonderful characters to meet, interesting places to explore, and meaningful, multi-layered quests to solve, that it didn’t feel like there was any room to get tired of it.”
“Even if the larger beats don’t always land, The Outer Worlds shines with a constant stream of small, bright moments. An amusing interaction with a clueless guard. A sugary corporate jingle. A brutal sneak attack. A solution to a problem you are sure won’t work, but it does.”
Kotaku: No Score
“For players concerned about Obsidian’s past issues with buggy releases, you can breathe a sigh of relief. The game isn’t quite bug free, these issues were exactly game-breaking for me, and my playthrough didn’t suffer for them. This is the Obsidian game that people have been begging for: one with polish.”
This one is going to be a must play for me! Who else is going to get in on this beauty of a game?
