First mods for The Outer Worlds let you skip startup videos & unlock UE4 Developer Console

Private Division has just released Obsidian’s new RPG, The Outer Worlds, and it appears that its first mods have surfaced online. The first mod allows you to skip the startup splash videos, while the second one unlocks the UE4 developer console.

According to Infogram, there is currently no convenient method to skip the developer splash video that plays when starting the game. However, most users can work around this by replacing the .mp4’s with blank files. You can also bypass it by deleting the file, however this may introduce issues.

On the other hand, the second mod unlocks the UE4 developer console. This will allow players to mess with developer commands, cvars and more. A list of default UE4 commands (which are mostly still in the game) can be found here.

So yeah, these are pretty basic modifications but then again, the game came out yesterday. Still, it will be interesting to see what other mods will come out for this latest RPG. It will also be interesting to see whether it will have as many mods as the Fallout games did.

You can download the Skip Startup Splash Videos mod from here, and the Developer Console Unlocker from here.

Have fun and stay tuned for more!
