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…

A few Unreal tweaks to make The Outer Worlds better

I spent a good part of the weekend exploring The Outer Worlds. Just pottering about, as you do, looking for space adventures and feeling bad about the dead sprats (until I met a large and angry one, and now they all need to die). I also spent some of that time changing the game to my liking, and what I couldn’t do in the settings,…

Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds is out now

At the stroke of midnight, Obsidian Entertainment blasted off into The Outer Worlds. It's a new first-person sci-fi RPG from the studio behind Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol, exploring strange space colonies in quite a NuFallout-y way. It's not one to break bold new ground (and even with the name, I've accidentally called it"Outer Wilds" thrice so far today) but it does those Obsidian…

The Outer Worlds launch trailer shows Obsidian’s silly sci-fi world

Obsidian Entertainment are blasting off to The Outer Worlds, and prematurely zlorped their launch trailer out. The new first-person RPG from the gang behind Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars Of Eternity explores a silly sci-fi world of aliens and moonmen, striking a tone I would crudely say looks to me like 'New Vegas in space with Borderlands wackiness'. You will tut at me, and probably…

Obsidian blasting off to The Outer Worlds in October

Obsidian Entertainment's oddball sci-fi FPS-RPG The Outer Worlds will first launch on October 25th, Microsoft announced during the night's newsblast. What surprised me in the trailer is a feature I'd missed: the game has a shrink ray which blasts wibbly shrinkbeams until the target becomes diddy. A must-have weapon. I know young Matt will meet Obsidian at E3 later this week so I must press…

Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind RPGs from Alpha Protocol through Fallout: New Vegas to Pillars Of Eternity, tonight announced The Outer Worlds, a new singleplayer first-person RPG with a space-western twang. As a space colonist who was deep frozen when their ship got lost, we end up in the arse end of the galaxy on a planet many factions are fighting over. It's a bit…
