Have You Seen The Outer Worlds?

A new game from the makers of Fallout: New Vegas was revealed at some video game awards last weeks. It’s called The Outer Worlds, and it looks amazing!

The Outer Worlds looks to be based around the Fallout: New Vegas system. There’s actually a pretty funny story behind this, if I recall correctly. Basically, the makers of the original Fallout games, with their irreverent wit, eventually got fired from the company they worked for and went on to regroup and form Obsidian Entertainment, while the rights to the Fallout games were sold to Bethesda.

Bethesda has made some good Fallout games (Fallout 3 and Fallout 4), but they’re right in the middle of a big stinker that is Fallout 76. I don’t know, because I haven’t played it yet, because of all the negative response.

But the true gem of the modern Fallout games was Fallout: New Vegas. Bethesda hired Obsidian to make New Vegas, which is what sets it apart from Fallouts 3 and 4. I played New Vegas through completely at least three times. I loved that game! But then Bethesda didn’t bring Obsidian back to make Fallout 4 or Fallout 76.

So rather than rest on their laurels, it seems the fine folks at Obsidian have just made their own Fallout game, without Fallout! It’s got the same sense of humor, the same first-person style, the same dialogue choices, the same feel. The Outer Worlds looks great! Can’t wait to play it!
