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.
