The Epic Games Store is having a grand old halloween sale

Is there anything scarier than buying products at below the recommended retail price? Almost certainly, which is why I'd hesitate to call the Epic Games Store Halloween Sale particularly spooky. It is, however, taking a massive knife to game prices across the platform, with some pretty hefty discounts of up to 80% going on a number of range of fantastic games until the sale wraps…

The Outer Worlds touches down on Steam this month

Rootin' tootin' corporate space western The Outer Worlds reckons it's time to recruit some new interstellar cowboys. After a year of blasting its way around The Epic Games system, Obsidian's Fallout-lite sci-fi romp is preparing to mosey on into Steam's parlour in just under two weeks.After all, what better place for a tale of unchecked capitalism run amok than Valve's brutally competitive storefront?

The Outer Worlds expansion Peril On Gorgon is out now

The Outer... Worlds? Worlds. The Outer Worlds has today released its first expansion, Peril On Gorgon, a title which feels like it needs a campy exclamation mark. It's the first of two narrative expansions, and set in an asteroid colony where Science has done a Bad. It also brings a couple of new weapons and armour sets, some new music, new perks and flaws, and…

Here’s 11 minutes of The Outer Worlds’ first story expansion

The first story expansion for The Outer Worlds won't be taking you to a relaxing corner of space for some well-earned relaxation. No, there's no rest for the wicked in corporate space so you'll be headed to an old research asteroid to find out what the heck has gone wrong. As you can bet based on the title, Peril On Gorgon will dunk you into…

How evil can you actually be in The Outer Worlds? Find out here, live!

I know I'm probably biased, but for my pocket change you won't have a better time on a Wednesday night than watching our dear VidBuds Matthew and Colm hammering the heads off people in The Outer Worlds. The thing is that even in RPGs with deep choice systems, like Obsidian's space cowboy adventure, most of us don't actually do the evil thing, do we? This…

Help us continue to be horrible in space in The Outer Worlds

After posing the question ‘who actually takes the evil path in games?’ I was surprised to see the answer is ‘most RPS readers, actually’. I’m not sure if this speaks more to my delightful innocence or your inherent gitishness. Either way, Colm and I (your RPS Vid Buds) continue to step out of our comfort zone as we pursue the nastiest outcomes in The Outer…

Outer Wilds writer has now written for The Outer Worlds, so I’ll never get the names right

For the past two years, I have confused the name Outer Wilds with The Outer Worlds. I will say one space game's name when I mean the other. I will expand one name into 'The Outer Wilds' and trim the other to 'Outer Worlds'. I will trip and combined the two into 'Outer Woilds'. I hate this. AND NOW, Outer Wilds writer Kelsey Beachum has…

The Outer Worlds goes sleuthing with Peril On Gorgon this September

From my understanding of Greek myths, you're not supposed to look directly at a Gorgon. That doesn't seem to be how The Outer Worlds' tales work, then, because there's a bloody asteroid of the same name that's crawling with baddies. Arriving this September, Peril On Gorgon brings in a whole new world full of conspiracies, subterfuge and good ol' fashioned gunfights in The Outer Worlds'…

Join us in being as evil as possible in The Outer Worlds

Has anyone, in the history of gaming, actually made the bad choice? I can see the renegade dialogue option staring at at me, but are we 100% sure it’s wired up to something in the game? I have my doubts. And it’s those doubts that have led to this, a new streaming series where your loyal RPS vid buds attempt to pursue the worst endings…

For the second year running, the Glaad awards look like they’re missing the mark on celebrating queer representation

Glaad (formerly known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) have brought their media awards back for the 31st year, and for the second year in a row they're recognising video games "for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives".Last year, Jay Castello wrote about how these video game…

Play Sea of Thieves and Halo: Reach for pennies – Game Pass is only £1 right now

I’ve been spending the past few weeks playing co-op games with my BFF. I wanted to try Sea of Thieves, because when I’m not dreaming of being an astronaut, I’m dreaming of being a pirate. Being Scottish, I suggested we use Game Pass, Microsoft’s games subscription service, and was surprised to see that it was only £1. Then I was surprised to see that the…

The Outer Worlds companions were mistaken for dead after falling from imaginary ladders

Party members were not being launched into space by cows then falling to their mock-deaths in The Outer Worlds, it turns out, but the truth isn't much less strange. Obsidian Entertainment last night released a big bugfix patch for their sci-fi RPG, including a fix for the problem of the game sometimes declaring you'd failed companion quests because your pal had died - even though…

The Outer Worlds text size patch delayed to Monday

Patch 1.1.1.0 for The Outer Worlds, which was expected to launch this week, ended up delayed at short notice. Developers Obsidian Entertainment have pushed the patch back slightly due a situation that was out of their control, but thankfully only to Monday the 18th of November. I can tell you that the best fix of the entire patch is an increase to dialogue and subtitle…

The Outer Worlds weapons – the best weapons revealed, damage types and special effects explained

The Outer Worlds weapons are pretty darn complex. They may give you a tonne of scope for choice and customisation, but each weapon has many more associated stats than we're used to seeing in games such as this - and that's not even taking into account weapon type buffs, damage types, special effects, mods, and each of the many other elements that may affect your…
