The Game Awards ended last week, with numerous developers releasing new information on upcoming games or DLC Installments. This award show also saw the announcement of Microsoft’s Next-Generation console. However, one of the most exciting pieces of information provided was through Obsidian. This developer noted that they have additional story content being released for The Outer Worlds in 2020. Considering this was one of the most popular games in 2019, fans have quickly responded with their joy and excitement.
This game saw some of the highest-rated player reviews in existence. The Space-RPG has received numerous awards from IGN, GamesRadar, and GameInformer. These positive reviews come from the extensive writing displayed throughout the story-based narrative. It’s also because of the advanced role-playing systems, expansive world, and unique weaponry available to players. Unfortunately, it’s unknown how Obsidian will upgrade upon these systems with the DLC.
Obsidian Entertainment didn’t provide any details regarding their first round of downloadable content for The Outer Worlds. They only noted that the story is being expanded and that additional news will be provided through the game’s forum. Die-hard fans who have completed the Outer Worlds were disappointed by the lack of information.
The Outer Worlds has received critical acclaim, and for a good reason, it’s an experience that’s best compares to Mass Effect 2. This has allowed Obsidian Entertainment to receive the Best Narrative, Best RPG, Best Performance, and Game of the Year. When receiving their award, the staff behind Obsidian Entertainment spoke to the audience. They mentioned how they’re grateful for the support and voters that they’re shocked by the reception received from the Outer Worlds. At the Game Awards Show, the development team revealed that the journey isn’t over and that the Halcyon Narrative will continue in Mid-2020.
It should also be noted that Obsidian Entertainment also announced that The Outer Worlds is being released to the Nintendo Switch in 2020, which will give die-hard fans a portable rendition to experience virtually anywhere. Those wanting to experience the Outer Worlds today can do so on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC via Steam
