The Outer Worlds is out on Friday October 25 and is shaping up to tide Fallout and Mass Effect fans over until the next installation. To help you get your eager hands on a copy, here's a list of Australia's stockists to get you a sweet deal.
If you haven't been across it, the RPG is set in an alternate reality diverging from our own in 1901 where the US President at the time, William McKinley, was not assassinated. Because of this, Teddy Roosevelt never became president and the result is a world where mega-corporations dominate society and have expanded to take over nearby planets.
Your player starts the adventure in a very familiar way: a spaceship, filled with cryosleep humans, strays from its course and you wake up to a dormant ship on the edges of the new galactic frontier. While it's certainly not a groundbreaking story, it's one people are bound to enjoy playing with new space creatures and warring factions to destroy and dominate.
The very first quest in The Outer Worlds, Obsidian’s highly anticipated first-person RPG out October 25, asked me to make what felt like an impossible choice.
