Obsidian har slängt upp en Steam-sida för sitt kommande rymdrollspel The Outer Worlds, eller "Space: New Vegas" som man skulle kunna kalla det. Redan i premiärtrailern gjorde man en stor sak av att besluten i deras spel inte rätt eller fel och att man också ska kunna välja gråzoner, något studion ofta hyllas för.

När nu spelet finns på Valves tjänst har ett gäng nya skärmdumpar dykt upp och det är inte helt långsökt att tänka på No Man's Sky när man ser vissa miljöbilder. De passade också på att stolpa ner fyra punkter om vad som livet på Halcyon faktiskt innebär.

  • The player-driven story RPG: In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios.

  • You can be flawed, in a good way: New to The Outer Worlds is the idea of flaws. A compelling hero is made by the flaws they carry with them. While playing The Outer Worlds, the game tracks your experience to find what you aren't particularly good at. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately. This optional approach to the game helps you build the character you want while exploring Halcyon.

  • Lead your companions: During your journey through the furthest colony, you will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. 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: Halcyon is a colony at the edge of the galaxy owned and operated by a corporate board. They control everything... except for the alien monsters left behind when the terraforming of the colony’s two planets didn’t exactly go according to plan. Find your ship, build your crew, and explore the settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.
