With Bethesda drifting further and further away from making RPGs I am all in on this. Can’t wait to play what Cain and Boyarsky have cooked up.

Obsidian does what Bethesdon't.

Should have just let them make more Fallout, your loss Bethesda.

This is the only announcement I needed, fuck yes!

Everything looked great about this BUT then saw that it was yet another new rpg that is forced first person. Why? Why are newer rpgs doing this? Cyberpunk and now this, there are plenty of us that prefer to play in third person, even in TES/Fallout games. Just make it an optional choice and let the players have that choice instead of forcing it upon them.

Having force first person really sucks the fun out of rpgs when it comes to customization aspect, getting new armor/weapons, making your characters visual appearance, etc feel completely useless since you won't ever see those for the vast majority of playing.
I'm with you. It's a shame.

These days, the Fallout franchise is at such a low point. Seeing Obsidian moving on, above and beyond, with something like this puts a huge smile on my face.

A little surprised its on PS4 as well, but I assume it was far enough along that it just made since to release it anyways and not throw away all the work done on the ps4 version.

Don't know about that... I expected to see something more in line with Cyberpunk ambition wise, the way Obsidian been hyping it up. This is just borderlands and Rage, with new vegas speech checks.

ThereAreFourNaan - Retro-futurism it is.

I'm pretty disappointed. I have enough of that with Fallout and Borderlansds.

Will still give the game a chance though. This better do something to carve out its own place.

This's published by 2k not MS. The deal was done before MS purchased them.

I thought The Outer Worlds was announced months ago and had screenshots of characters sitting by a campfire, including one playing a guitar? There was someone in a scuba helmet?

Either way, I'm in.

Oh hell yeah! Stab that dagger right into Bethesda's heart and twist it.
I kind of wonder if this will shift to an exclusive or if MS will just say eff it and let it release on PS4?
There are probably contracts that would prevent this from happening. But the sequels are a different matter altogether.

That art style is nice and I like how it looks like Fallout: New Vegas 2. It will be funny and kinda depressing if this sells enough that Obsidian never had to sell themselves to Microsoft.
