Obsidian Entertainment's big new role-playing game will be a science-fiction space adventure called The Outer Worlds, and we got our first look at it during The Game Awards 2018.

It's in development for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 - a platform we were wondering about after Obsidian's recent acquisition by Microsoft. It's due out 2019, and will be published by Private Division, Take-Two's new label.

The Outer Worlds will take place on the outer-edge of colonised space, and is strongly reminiscent of the original Fallout games, full of humour and quirk. It's no coincidence: The Outer Worlds is a project led by Leonard Boyarsky and Tim Cain, creators of those classic games.
