The Outer Worlds Launch Trailer — Will you be the Hero or the Villain?

By Sean Carey,
We are just one week away from the launch of The Outer Worlds, and if you weren't hyped enough, the official launch trailer has just landed. The trailer shows off more of the world, the different alien landscapes you'll be able to explore, and asks "Who do you think you are?" Will you be a sci-fi hero, a villain, or perhaps even a Moon Man in Obsidians colourful sci-fi RPG?


The Outer Worlds comes to Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC next week on October 25. If you're buying the game physically, there will be a day one patch of around 38GB to download.

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is a new single-player sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter a host of factions all vying for power, who you decide to become will determine the fate of everyone in Halcyon. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

    I am also liking the prospect of a melee build character from the trailer and just bashing everything to shit!

    You honestly believe that’s why they put a patch out? Really?

    This and the new Star Wars game are the two games I'm most looking forward to this year.

    Everything is a conspiracy to some people.

    The patch is for the 4K visuals Xbox will receive, PlayStation will only have 1080p.

    I was already going to play this game day one, but the trailer is making me impatient ! laugh Thankfully I only teach the first period on the 25th, so I'll be back home at 10:30 and ready to play all day and all night ! Shades of my teenage years clap

    I'm pumped to play this for 'free' in Game Pass. Normally I'd wait for reviews, but Game Pass at launch is the bomb!
