    New Gameplay Today – The Outer Worlds

    by Jeff Cork on Aug 02, 2019 at 08:00 AM

    Obsidian's next RPG has people excited, with its blend of humor, sci-fi, and open-ended exploration. We were impressed when we saw The Outer Worlds for our cover story, and subsequent showings have only increased our excitement. In today's NGT, Joe Juba shows me and Leo some of the footage he captured during a recent hands-on session – about 45 minutes of it, in fact. Also, he highlights what happens if you act like an absolute maniac. Enjoy?

    You're able to kill NPCs, including questgivers, as you can see in the video below. And while you're able to talk your way out of conflict if you put enough points in your speech-related skills, we don't see much of that here. Instead, Joe solves problems by, well, killing them.

    The Outer Worlds is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25, with a Switch release coming sometime afterward.
