Now Playing: The Outer Worlds – Official Announcement Trailer | The Game Awards 2018

For as much as The Game Awards is about recognizing the success of the video game industry's previous year, it's also a venue for new game announcements--did you catch the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 reveal? There were more than a few at this year's event, but for longtime fans of Obsidian Entertainment, particularly its work on the Fallout series, its announcement came as a somewhat unexpected surprise--all we knew heading into the event was that Obsidian had something to announce.

The Outer Worlds is a single-player, open-world RPG set on distant planets where player choice and dialogue play two very important roles. It's typical Obsidian, which for the past few years has been embedded in the world of isometric CRPGs such as Pillars of Eternity, its sequel Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and Tyranny. Though Obsidian was recently acquired by Microsoft, this project remains under Take-Two's Private Division publishing label.

You can read all about The Outer Worlds in our preview--it's certainly a lot like Fallout, though it also differs from it in a number of ways.
