Watch the official announcement trailer for The Outer Worlds, a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division.
In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

0:46 And the rest of your fellow settlers? Abandoned on the edge of the colony.
0:50 I’d save them myself, but, eh, the board’s got a bounty on my head.
0:55 So that’s why I thawed you out. You appear…capable.

1:17 You know you didn’t have to shoot either one, right?
