‘The Outer Worlds’ Trailer: The folks behind ‘Fallout: New Vegas’ take their talents to space

Obsidian, the folks behind Fallout: New Vegas, and the creators of the original Fallout are going to space for their new RPG. And, it looks fucking rad.


As Bethesda takes Fallout multiplayer, the original creators of Fallout are making a brand new single-player shooter-RPG along with the studio that made Fallout: New Vegas. It’s called The Outer Worlds, it’ll be out next year, and it’s basically New Vegas in space.

Game studio Obsidian announced The Outer Worlds at The Game Awards tonight, with a two-minute trailer showcasing the game’s setting (space!) and tone (funny!). It’s a first-person shooter with clear RPG elements set in a dystopian universe where massive corporations with names like Spacer’s Choice and Auntie Cleo’s have taken over entire planets.
