In Obsidian we trust, or so the old saying goes. Not content with giving us the sublime Alpha Protocol, they've only gone and outdone Fallout with The Outer Worlds, a planet-hopping sci-fi romp with humour to spare. It's a joyous little thing and it also happens to run really rather well too, at least on our test rig.
Obsidian probably couldn't have planned ¬¬g_id:35787[The Outer Worlds]¬¬ timing any better. While Bethesda cocks up at every available opportunity, along comes the Fallout: New Vegas developers to show us exactly how a sci-fi RPG should be done. The Outer Worlds has been earning rave reviews and it could be played on PC for as little as $1 through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Nvidia’s latest GeForce Game Ready graphics card driver has arrived with day one support for the release of this week’s two biggest titles - ¬¬g_id:6039[Call of Duty: Modern Warfare]¬¬ and ¬¬g_id:35787[The Outer Worlds]¬¬. 
Here we go, it’s time for one final peek at Obsidian’s ¬¬g_id:35787[The Outer Worlds]¬¬ before it’s launch time. They’ve dropped a launch trailer for Outer Worlds which pretty much sums up all you need to know about this off-the-wall sci-fi RPG. 
With every AAA publisher seemingly hellbent on chasing the MMO-lite looter shooter cash, Obsidian's ¬¬g_id:35787[The Outer Worlds]¬¬ is refreshingly old-school. Heavily inspired by their previous work, ¬¬g_id:24388[Fallout New Vegas]¬¬, The Outer Worlds is a wholly single-player first-person RPG with a lengthy campaign and none of the microtransaction trappings. So far, so good, but what about what PC hardware you'll need to play The Outer Worlds. Find out with our look at the official PC system specs for The Outer Worlds.
AMD has announced an upgraded game bundle for fans of by-the-numbers sequels. They’re back with another ‘Raise the Game’ bundle offer on select AMD Radeon RX graphics cards, advertising a package of games which includes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint or Borderlands 3, and Gears 5.
While Bethesda has been busy doubling down on the things we didn’t like about the Fallout franchise, Obsidian is all-too-happy to lean heavily the other way with The Outer Worlds. Let’s just hope they don’t fall over. It’s an RPG full of wisecracking, light-hearted humour; a collection of oddball planets where exploration is full of surprises and oddities, whether that be shrink rays or rabid mushrooms. 
Obsidian shared a new trailer for The Outer Worlds during Microsoft’s Xbox E3 briefing, demonstrating how the choice is totally in the players’ hands. Whether you want to be a hero, a villain, or a full-blown psychopath, the choice is yours in The Outer Worlds.
An update to Steam’s back-end database could have revealed the release date for The Outer Worlds, Obsidian Entertainment’s eagerly anticipated sci-fi RPG.
One of the most interesting things we were looking forward to during the Game Awards was the reveal of Obsidian Entertainment’s new project. Just as expected it’s a sci-fi space RPG called The Outer Worlds, offering 3D first-person adventuring antics in a wacky world.
Obsidian, now under the wing of Microsoft since their acquisition earlier this month, will be announcing a new RPG next week during the Game Awards. The all-new sci-fi RPG will be published by Take-Two’s new Private Division, so we’re assuming this was a deal that was inked long before Microsoft came around flashing its cash.
