The Outer Worlds

starkaosstarkaos Member Posts: 10,305 Arc User
Obsidian just announced The Outer Worlds and it has a scheduled release date of 2019.



The Announcement Trailer seems like a giant middle finger to Bethesda with the comments of "From the original creators of Fallout" and "and the developers of Fallout: New Vegas". It essentially says we have everything that is missing from the new Fallout game, single player, npcs, and humor.

    I want.
    KDF: Not supported by Cryptic, because according to them, we're not 'Real' Star Trek fans.

    Well, TRIBBLE them, I'll play KDF anyway.

    Even if The Outer Worlds is half as good as we expect, it will still be 1000 times better than Fallout 76. Fallout 76 feels like Fallout 4 without any npcs or companions, a forced survival mode, and crafting requires getting perks and plans for each piece of equipment. Mod plans for specific weapons and armor can be acquired by scrapping that weapon or armor. Plans can also be found at robot vendors, crates, quests, enemies, and on top of counters or workbenches. Fallout 76 has its version of Dilithium, but it is only available through challenges and you can currently only buy cosmetics.

    Then there is all the scandals with the Power Armor Helmet Edition that cost $200. First it was players getting a Nylon bag instead of a Canvas Bag to store their helmet that was initially advertised, then it was Influencers like Youtubers received the Canvas Bag, and then when Bethesda corrected their canvas bag mistake, the confirmation system for getting the canvas bag allowed certain players to gain access into Bethesda's support system resulting in customer's personal information being revealed to other customers.

    Personally, I am hoping that Fallout 76 won't damage the chances of Fallout 5 , Elder Scrolls 6, and Starfield being released. Although, The Outer Worlds might be better than any of those future Bethesda games, but I am not sure if The Outer Worlds or Cyberpunk 2077 will be better. The Outer Worlds will certainly not have any romanceable characters.

    Ohh hey looks... wait...
    >That obvious Rick from Rick and Morty copy paste scientist
    >Those puke ugly graphic where everything looks like half melted plastic(thanks Unreal engine)
    >That god awful lip sync that's even worse then Fallout 4's already bad lip sync
    >The "WE WANT THE BORDERLANDS AUDIENCE!" tone/graphics
    Who made this?
    >Obsidian
    Ohh, that explains it. Hard pass. That company has done nothing but made worse sequels to other people's far better games, or made worse rip off of other people's games.

    Obsidian did South Park: The Stick of Truth and has a few original titles. Also, Fallout: New Vegas was better than Fallout 3 for its quests and ending. The Fallout 3 ending is almost as bad as Mass Effect 3.

    Star, you should really learn to differentiate between your opinions and actual facts. You keep stating your opinions as if everyone shared them. They do not.

    And if you think F76 lacks humor, I venture to suggest you haven't played it much. Either that, or your taste for dark postapocalyptic humor is such that Outer Worlds will leave you cold as well.

    I haven't run across Tanagra Town yet, but it looks like the person who got that screenshot didn't have a good time there, at least on first visiting. :smile:

    Quality assessment is almost always an opinion since everyone has a different opinion on what makes a good game, TV show, movie, etc. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Post was made before I hit Camp McClintock with the Drill Sergeant trying to teach the robots to become Drill Sergeants and the incident at Sugar Grove for humor. So I will admit there is some humor in Fallout 76, but not as much as Fallout 4 due to the lack of npcs in Fallout 76. Humor has a different level of impact when it comes from a npc compared to reading it on a console.
