    Game overview

    Blast, negotiate and stumble your way through the galaxy's most far-flung colony. 

    The Outer Worlds is a new single-player, sci-fi RPG from the developer of Pillars of Eternity and Fallout: New Vegas.

    Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edges of the galaxy, you awake decades later to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the far-flung Halcyon colony.

    Explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, and decide what kind of character you will become as your choices determine how the story unfolds.

    In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable. 


    Key features

    Create your adventure

    In keeping with Obsidian's previous games, your approach to situations in The Outer Worlds is entirely up to you. Choices will affect not only the way the story develops, but your character build, companion's stories and end-game scenarios.

    Turn your flaws into strengths

    A compelling hero is defined as much by their weaknesses as their strengths. The Outer Worlds tracks your progress to identify areas where you fall short and throughout play offers you a chance to add these flaws to your character build in exchange for unique perks.

    Lead your companions

    In your journey through the furthest colony you will meet a host of characters who will want to join you. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals or turn them to your own ends.

    Explore the corporate colony

    Uncover the hidden secrets of a remote corporate-controlled colony known as Halcyon: a place where everything is strictly overseen by the corporate board. Assemble your crew, board your ship and explore settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.
