Obsidian’s Grounded will enter early access in July

Obsidian Entertainment tonight announced an early access launch date of July 28th for Grounded, their craft-o-survival game about teenagers shrunk down smaller than ants and turned loose in a back garden. If I've learned anything from the oeuvre of Rick Moranis, is that those kids are in for a tough time. It's a surprising game to see coming from a studio known for RPGs including…

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.

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 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…

Obsidian announce Grounded, a shrunk-down survival game

Obsidian Entertainment, the gang behind The Outer Worlds and Alpha Protocol, have announced a new game and it is... not an RPG?

I wouldn’t expect a Pillars Of Eternity 3 soon

Sales of Pillars Of Eternity 2: Deadfire were disappointing enough that Obsidian Entertainment would need to "re-examine the entire format of the game" before making a hypothetical third, game director Josh Sawyer has suggested. Writing in response to a fan asking after a third game, Sawyer explained that the sequel sold worse than the original, and he'd need to understand why before they were to…

Check out the gorgeous loading screens in The Outer Worlds

I understand that Obsidian fans are sort of using the existence of The Outer Worlds to dunk on Fallout 76 (because OW is the real successor to New Vegas, right?). But before it was ammunition in a weeing contest, the game was a first-person space RPG where you did a shoot at extremely angry lizards. And, much like that one friend we all have, I…
