Rather play rage 2. Fallout in space looks lame.

Looks good to me.

Metro: Exodus, Rage 2, FC: New Dawn, and now this? Cool.

Pretty cool for MS to allow a PS4 port of this game. They sure know where the money is.

This looks really interesting. I suppose it's gonna be like Bethesda's Fallout, hard to tell by the little gameplay they showed. Plus it seems to be humorous like Borderlands.

This looks like a better fallout than fallout, but in space

Why all the games looking so similar to borderlands like Rage 2, Outer worlds, and FC new Dawn? They kind have the same quality and visuals to it.

No biggie though.

I get the feeling this is going to be a big Microsoft franchise for next gen since they own the IP.

Published by Take 2 and yes, its coming to PS4. Ps4 part is probably? according to reports and news articles they state that.

Looks interesting, obsidian is one of my favorite devs so will definitely keep an eye on this!

@sakaixx: I don't see any advantage in that, MS has nothing invested in the game and that would only generate bad press and internet outrage and that is worth more than one game. If the game proves successful, then yes we might see exclusive sequels. But even than I think it would be best to have something made from scratch.

The interesting thing would be if since Obsidian is 1st party now does that mean MS will make this available on game pass day 1? or is that for 1st party published games only?

yes. being third person it would be terrible. immersion is only point of this game as its RPG so shooting mechanics will not be good.

This definitely has New Vegas vibes. It might be interesting if they release it close to Bethesda's Starfield, another sci-fi RPG. I suspect Outer Worlds > Starfield will be the new Fallout New Vegas > Fallout 3.

Makes you wonder if developers get together and plan what the theme will be for the following year's games.

That or they're spying on each other. ;)

Yeah, I am excited, if not for the content, then for Obsidian returning to the FPS-RPG arena...emphasis on RPG.

Was hoping for Alpha Protocol 2, though.

It's "bubblegum punk" aesthetic or accent: take your general dreary post-apocalyptic or corporate sci-fi future, then add in some pastel colors, youthful and nihilistic rebels, and...voila! Every game looks the same.

Far Cry New Dawn? Check

Rage 2? Check

Borderlands? Check

Outer Worlds? Check

Not that I am complaining--people have been tired of the grey/brown/radioactive green of the dreary future game for some time-- but it would be nice to see some different approaches instead of a trend among many.

Hard to imagine this game, or most others, being shittier than Borderlands; that game is the definition of repetition.

I'm intrigued. I'm not sure I'd say super excited, but it has me more intrigued than another Bethesda Fallout and will likely be (much?) better. My wallet is accessible... I'll keep my eye on it to be sure

What was the last big first person shooter that wasn't an RPG hybrid in some way? They're almost all obsessed with upgrades, skills, quests and all that junk. Pure action is dead.

Probably because no one was buying the pure action FPS games. What was the last pure action FPS game? Even Hard Reset had upgrades.

DOOM (2016)? But even that had an upgrade system...does that count?

Wolfenstein reboots had skill tree and upgrades.

Hard Reset? Serious Sam?

Added on my wishlist for 2019, i hope that release date stays.

Bethesda have royally fucked up the IP with Fallout 4's abysmally shit writing, so this which is obviously a spiritual successor got me hyped.

Looking at my screenshot archive..... I'd say even Doom 2016 was not exempt.

Plenty of it. He He.

Obviously, I prefer to be a fast-moving target. Hence, my preference for Health and Ammo.

As for Hard Reset, I think it has mostly weapon upgrades.

Good news

https://www.polygon.com/features/2018/12/7/18129759/outer-worlds-obsidian-entertainment-new-rpg-preview

We had to pick what we were going to put our time into,” Boyarsky said. “Other people have explored the romance angle in different ways. We felt like sometimes it kind of waters down your roleplaying for your character because it turns into this mini game of how do I seduce this companion or that companion. So it was just one of the things we felt wasn’t really what we wanted to focus our time on. [...] We’re really trying to be focused on a specific experience so that we can polish that experience and give players the best version of that experience that we can.”

there is no romance in this game. no romance mini game, no sex scene. just pure FPS/RPG. take note CDPR. you can make a mature game without adding nudity and romance.

my hype increase more. keep up good work obsidian.

Why would you complain about this in an Obsidian thread though? They make RPGs, and one of the absolute best FPS/RPG hybrids in history.

im pretty sure this was being made before MS bought them. This is probably Obsidians last game on a Sony console.
