The Fallout devs are going off-world.
During Microsoft's Xbox press conference at E3 last week, the company revealed a new trailer and details for The Outer Worlds. The first-person RPG is developed by Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth developer Obsidian Entertainment, one of the many studios Microsoft acquired last year. The game did not become an Xbox exclusive as a result of that acquisition; it's still set for release on PS4 and PC in addition to Xbox One. And now we know when it's coming.
The Outer Worlds trailer also confirmed a release date: October 25. The trailer shows off more of the sci-fi world and the characters and creatures you'll meet on your journey.

The Outer Worlds is published by Grand Theft Auto V parent publisher Take-Two Interactive's new indie games label, Private Division. The game is coming to Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 4 and PC where it's exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a period of time. It'll come to Steam sometime in 2020. Like all of Microsoft's other games, it'll be playable at no extra charge for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky--both of which worked on the original 1997 Fallout--are the duo heading this game, which is probably why The Outer Wilds looks, at least thematically, an awful lot like the post-apocalyptic franchise. The game shows promise, giving you agency over how your character evolves, treats allies, and explores a corporate-run galaxy.
