This could've been an Xbox one exclusive if Microsoft would have bought Obsidian years earlier.
Does that really matter? Now they can take the feedback from this game and make a better exclusive sequel if they want.
Absolutely I'm just saying this could have been a good exclusive for them. This game looks fantastic and I'm sure it will get good review scores and be better than Fallout 76
xbox has just 1 exclusive this generation. there is almost zero chance that this game would had been exclusive. apart from that, this game maybe would never seen the day of light if not 2K. Obsidian said themself that they was almost done if not m$, so if not 2K, there would be no Outer World.
You say that like it's a good idea.
Gonna really grind your gears if it's a FANTASTIC game and you can only play the sequel on Windows 10 and Xbox devices
That would be cool
Lol really! That'll probably be what happens. If Obsidian can create games that look this interesting exclusively for Xbox it'll be well worth the pick up.
@NarutoFox It would be cool? Really? It would be cool just that the game is exclusive rather than available for everyone? I'm not bashing exclusivity in general. It's what pushes the console makers to push their own hardware even more. But, this game is clearly not the case of first party involvement.
Because the exclusives are the only thing that matters. This way a talented studio can sell ideally sell twice as many copies.
This looks great. Since they screwed Obsidian out of money with New Vegas, and then all of us with 76, I hope Obsidian has a new hit franchise on their hands that can take on Fallout.
See this is the kind of quality they can produce if they are given a standard development time...not 18 months like what Bethesda gave them with New Vegas. I really hope if this becomes a success they make a new franchise similar to Fallout...like I mean a crazy post apocalyptic "Nukes destroyed everything" spiritual successor to Fallout and beat Bethesda at their own game.
There wouldn't be a point for creating another post-apoc franchise. Outer Worlds looks, plays, feels similar enough...from the looks of it :P
The only potential issues that I've seen is that it's not supposed to be a full open world (broken into segmented areas due to a tight budget but this could be a good thing as well), there's no romance options and the gore/dismemberment from Fallout will be sorely missed. Bethesda should have swallowed their pride and purchased Obsidian years ago.
The original 2 Fallouts were just a few linear-ish areas. I know it's not like-for-like, but I don't think a great RPG has to be open-world. Romance in RPGs is trendy more than essential. The lack of gore is a bit disappointint, and I'm not too fond at the thought of blasting through robots ad infinitum. Also, I hope you can holster your weapon, the player didn't put it away once in the demo! Having said that, I'm more excited about this than just about anything on the horizon. Can't wait to see more!
I agree with you for once Foxtrox. This game is looking awesome.
Everyone keeps comparing this to Fallout, but to me it felt a lot more like Borderlands.
I think the Fallout comparisons are due to the dialogue system and some of the visuals. To me I see Fallout, Borderlands, and BioShock.
So far I've seen people liken it to Fallout, Borderlands, NMS, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Destiny, Dishonored, Elex. Any more?
It's basically a Dark Souls clone.
Border = Outer Lands = Worlds These words mean the same thing. It looked super similar to Borderlands in the trailer to me. The name just makes it a slap in the face to tell you that it is. It really needs to show some uniqueness. Looks far too similar for me to get hyped for it. Worried we're just gonna get the same old thing from another studio. It's a bit more familiar than your usual inspiration.
Felt like Borderlands and Fallout 76 crossed with each other.
This game looks like direct fu to Bethesda for the shafting they got over New Vegas.
How do we know this?
not much to go on other than the GOTY Awards trailer, you're jumping to conclusions. not that it would take much to surpass a game like 76 anyway. I too hope for this games success, they really stuck it to Bethesda and clearly used 76s failure to their advantage. as for Microsoft owning Obsidian, they own Mojang and Minecraft is still multiplatform.
There's 15 minutes of gameplay already released.
Ha you haven't even played or seen actual game play this article is clickbate. And the so called unique style is cel shaded and resembles borderlands not fallout. The whole franchise is stale and will never be single player again thank god. Just get some friends to play with you if you have any or maybe that's the problem you would rather experience the game with NPC ha.
There's 15 minutes of gameplay already released. Also, Fallout 76 is trash and single player Fallout (3 and New Vegas) were and still are fantastic games.
The outer worlds is single player isn’t it? Surely that makes the title of this article completely stupid
"seems". So you don't know.
