The Outer Worlds is an upcoming RPG video game being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the creators of such popular RPGs as Fallout New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords, and Pillars of Eternity. The Outer Worlds is a sci-fi game in which players explore a new colony planet as they travel inside various vehicles and uncover the mysteries of the planet.

Gameplay

The Outer Worlds is an RPG game that combines elements from traditional RPGs and FPS games. The player is able to travel in vehicles, including cars, mechs, and spaceships, which are piloted using Third-Person-Shooter-style controls. The player can also explore the world in a typical RPG fashion, managing their inventory, talking to NPCs, and completing quests. The Outer Worlds features an open world with an explorable surface, but players can only go down to the surface by going through the game's "Terraformers" which are large, modular mobile bases that house a colony's population and specialize in different purposes.

The player's character is created before the game starts and has a customizable appearance. Characters have a set of skills that can be upgraded, and the game features traditional RPG mechanics such as dialogue choices, combat, and looting.

Graphics

The Outer Worlds has a pixelated look and is rendered in a 2.5D style. The Outer Worlds' graphics are more colorful than those found in the Fallout series, which are more brown and muted.

Replayability

The Outer Worlds features a New Game+ mode that allows the player to restart the game after the end credits with all the previous items, upgrades, and levels they had at the end of the game.
