Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds is coming to Steam

Obsidian Entertainment has recently announced that The Outer Worlds is coming to Steam. The first-person action-RPG will release on Steam on October 23th. The Outer Worlds has been for almost a year exclusive to the Epic Games Store, and of course the Microsoft Store.

Obsidian Entertainment has created some amazing games in the past, such as Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars Knight of the Old Republic II, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and more. The Outer Worlds is their latest science fiction role playing game, which initially released back in October of last year.

The Outer Worlds received mostly good ratings, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have problems. Players are free to make their own choices in the game, and become whoever they want. You can be a hero, a villain, a jerk, or even a halfwit. The choice is yours, and it is always nice when games do not put such restrictions on your playable character.

On the other hand, the combat is not that great, and it can become repetitive and dull quite early in the game. Luckily, the story is quite good, and it can be very funny occasionally.

Lastly, the optimization of the game wasn’t terrible on launch, and the game had very few bugs. It would probably be awesome if Obsidian developed the continuation of Fallout: New Vegas, since it’s now possible due to the acquisition of Bethesda from Microsoft.
