Fallout creators and Obsidian reveal new game The Outer Worlds

CREDIT Obsidian Entertainment

In the years since, it's been rumored that Obsidian might release a New Vegas follow-up (New Orleans has been a frequently-rumored location for that apparently non-existent game), but despite all that rumormongering, nothing's happened. With The Outer Worlds they're taking their craft to a whole new universe.

Just as promised, Obsidian took to the stage at The Game Awards this evening to debut its latest RPG- The Outer Worlds.

The new game is still very much a secret, with the developers only choosing, so far, to reveal two retro advertisements for fake products.

Like nearly all the titles shown at The Game Awards, The Outer Worlds is due out next year - although there's no indication of exactly when.

Former Knicks coach Derek Fisher has a new coaching job

The Outer Wilds launches on Xbox One, PC and PS4 next year. In it, you are a part of a colonist ship heading to the far reaches of outer space.

There also appears to be a Borderlands-esque commentary on consumerism at play here, which plays into The Outer Worlds' choice-based system. In theory, this should incentivize deeper role-playing. Obsidian has announced its upcoming game that will be created by the original Fallout creators.

Obsidian and Private Division have officially unveiled "The Outer Worlds", an ambitious single-player sci-fi RPG set within a large-scale galaxy that's gradually being taken over by corporations.

For now, you can keep track of the game's progress by checking out its dedicated Steam store page.
