    I was waiting for a non-isometric RPG game from Obsidian for a long time. This is fantastic news!

    >Ubisoft announces a post apocalyptic Far Cry
    >Obsidian announces a new sci-fi RPG

    It's like they're all smelling the mess Bethesda brought on themselves with Fallout 76 and saw their chance to sweep in for the kill. :mjlol

    It looks fucking great. And those production values are a lot higher than I thought it was gonna be. An "independent" looking game for Rockstar's owner is a fucking AAA game.

    2K signed a deal for crossplatform before Microsoft bought obsidian, so no, its not an exclusive.

    Tho, I have a theory that later games in this franchise might have to go through corporate hell.

    Microsoft will cancel this franchise and have Obsidian make a new one.

    Unless the Outer Worlds becomes immensly successful.

    Locations
    • One solar system called Halcyon
    • The solar system contains two main planets, several moons, asteroids, and space stations that players can explore
    • One planet is terraformed, the other is not
    • The terraformed planet is considered "kinder to human life" while the other planet is not and is considered more dangerous and contains alien predators
    • Players will have a home base space ship like Mass Effect's Normandy
    • Passkeys needed to access certain locations and docks
    • Environments are small but have intense detail
    • Roaming around environments is possible
    • There are points of no return
    Characters
    • ADA - A.I. for your Spaceship
    • Ellie - Companion
    • Felix - Companion
    • Berke - Just the fucking tarmac guard
    • Anton Crane - Scientist
    • Cassandra O'Malley - Outlaw
    • Porter - Mad kid
    Companions
    • Inventory, when companions are with you, is shared
    • No romancing companions
    • Companion customization
    • Only two companions at a time
    • Each companion comes with three skills
    • Each companion comes with a perk tree
    • Every time you level up, your companions level up
    • You can choose which perks your companions get when they level up with you
    • Each companion as a special attack
    • Companions will leave you and go back to the ship if you piss them off too much
    Flaw System
    • When fighting a certain type of enemy many times, you are given the choice to take on a Flaw
    • Flaws negatively impact you and your companion's stats
    • You can choose to accept or reject them
    • If you choose to accept the Flaw, you are immediately granted 1 perk point
    • If you reject the Flaw, the game continues as before
    • Flaws are permanent
    • Can only have 3 flaws in normal difficulty, can have 5 on a hard difficulty
    • Flaw examples include Robophobia, a fear of heights, a fear of the dark, a fear of fire, etc.
    Tactical Time Dilation
    • Very similar to VATS from Fallout
    • Time slows down and allows you to view information on enemies like their health, faction, enemy type, and armor level
    • Unlike VATS, aiming is 100% manual
    • Skills and Perks allow for more frequent use or longer use
    Weapons
    • 4 weapon types - Bullet weapons, Energy weapons, Melee, and science weapons
    • Bullet weapons have 3 types of bullet ammo - Light, medium, heavy
    • Science weapons have special effects like a shrink ray for instance
    • No RNG for shooting enemies with weapons
    • Weapons can have mods
    • Mods for weapons include ones that give fire damage and shock damage
    • Damage is based on the damage output from the weapon and your character
    • There is a weapon selection wheel

    A small map but with actual shit to do, a companion system that isn't glorified tinder with an actual social component, a time slow mechanic that's totally not VATs, an interesting trade-off system with clear benefits and drawbacks and no RNG bullshit? But the most important, banter and dialogue that doesn't sound like generic video game bullshit from Bethesda or Bioware?

    Yes, 'mam.

    I fucking want this game.

    Hmmm... this looks like Borderlands 2 and Fallout New Vegas having a lovechild together. I'm definitely keeping an eye out for this one, looks very interesting.
