The Outer Worlds 2 Game Trailer – Will there ever be a sequel to Fallout: New Vegas? Who knows, and perhaps it’s time to stop asking because Obsidian Entertainment announced at E3 2021 that The Outer Worlds is now its own series. The sequel to the critically successful sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds will allow us to continue the ludicrous capitalist hellscape…in space! watch the trailer below
There’s no release date, no gameplay video, nothing—a reality Obsidian acknowledges in its teaser, mocking itself. Many devs do this at displays, but Obsidian at least has the self-awareness to admit it. We do know that on release day, the next RPG will be available on Game Pass.
So, what do we have to look forward to? More of the Obsidian DNA from the original game, most likely. The Outer Worlds is rich in player choice, not simply because of the multitude of friends to befriend and equip with all your additional weaponry. The Outer Worlds, like Fallout before it, allows you to play as a character with a low IQ, which drastically changes the options accessible to you.
There’s a recurring theme of class and corporate dominance throughout the original game. The ever-smiling Moon Man, the mascot of the all-powerful Spacer’s Choice business, is one of the most common themes. Nearly everything in the world has been surpassed by Spacer’s Choice.
The social order, then, relies entirely upon your ability to labor. If you can’t work, you’ll be deemed lazy and inept, and you’ll be ostracized right away. The difficulty is that the cause for your incapacity to operate in this environment is irrelevant. If you’re sick, the warped logic runs, it’s probably because you didn’t work hard enough. The broken structure allows productive people of society access to medicines while impoverished employees are denied practically everything, resulting in a self-fulfilling prophecy. “The toughest thing in this world is to live in it,” senior designer Brian Heins said in our interview.
