The Outer Worlds, from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division, is heading to PC and console on 25th October. To help ensure your rig is ready the PC system requirements have been released. The minimum spec isn’t too demanding so most people should be able to run the game on at least the minimum settings. The recommended spec obviously requires a bit more punch from your rig but once again won’t require you to re-mortgage the house in order to buy a new GPU.
The Outer Worlds is a single-player first-person sci-fi RPG. Set in the colony of Halcyon, on the outer reaches of humanities’ efforts to explore space, a host of different factions are vying for control. With a myriad of play styles and a whole host of futuristic weaponry at your disposal choose to use brute force or even your wit and charm. Your actions will determine the fates of the entire populace.

Having viewed some gameplay trailers it’s hard not to see the influence of Fallout: New Vegas but The Outer Worlds appears to be far more than a Fallout clone. The environments look beautiful and the combat appears to be less clunky than the Fallout games. Hopefully, Obsidian Entertainment’s reputation for great storytelling and humour will be present throughout.
