Obsidian's next game is a first-person RPG called The Outer Worlds

Published by Take-Two's "Private Division", The Outer Worlds is set to be a colourful, Sci-Fi RPG from the Fallout New Vegas team, in addition to some of the people behind the original Fallout. It does seem to lean towards some dark humor, however. Exploring the far reaches of space, you'll encounter different factions, all of which are competing for power. Your character awakens from hibernation, from there, you'll explore the colony, get to know the settlers, resolve conflicts and try to overcome the various threats coming your way.

Check out the new trailer below.

As you would expect from Obsidian, this is a single-player RPG with plenty of freedom.

For the unaware, this game is being developed by the same folks who created Fallout: New Vegas, as well as Fallout 1 & 2 (in other words, all the non-Bethesda Fallouts). Although, it's not clear if this will be impacted by the companies recent acquisition by Microsoft.

The Game Awards 2018 is scheduled to begin at 1.30am GMT today. A first-person shooter in a terrible universe that has seen capitalism run amok and infect numerous other planets, The Outer Worlds mixes the harsh materialism of society with a somewhat amusing look at the future.

Thankfully, we don't have too much longer to wait to find out what this exciting new retro-space themed RPG actually is.
