Primarily, The Outer Worlds is a role-playing game (RPG) made by former Fallout developers, which shines especially after the failed release of Fallout 76. We saw a short gameplay of the game, which will be released on October 25, 2019, at E3, and we wanted to share our first impressions with you.
First of all, as soon as the game started, the first thing that caught our attention was the graphics. The game is one of the best graphics games we’ve ever seen. Set on another planet, the game is a perfected version of the worlds we saw in the first videos of No Man’s Sky. The difference is that whatever you call it, this game really offers it. No Man’s Sky is also presenting it now, let’s not be fair, it was only able to present it with quite a delay.
A terraformed planet awaits us in The Outer Worlds. Those who play ogames or are into science a bit are familiar with the term. For those who do not know, we can define it as the process of reshaping a planet and making it suitable for life. Although this process seems like science fiction, you can see that we applied it to Mars recently.
Terraforming is a risky operation alone. You have to choose how to terraform well… Sir, there is a “small” problem here while our planet is being terraformed and the animals on the planet become quite aggressive. As a result, you cannot walk around the planet waving your arms. Sometimes you have to sneak around the corner without saying winter to anyone’s dinosaur or creature like an ostrich. When you achieve this, you can focus on your tasks.
In one of the missions we are asked to disable a factory. You have only one option to enter the factory: ventilation! Kidding aside, you can either enter through the secret sewer or wave your hand through the main door. For this, you need a device that makes you look like an authority – at least for a while. Afterwards, you can start moving around the building, but your every move reduces the duration of your mask. In this context, it is useful to move towards your goal without wandering around too much. And of course, you have to pay attention to our robot friend inside. It may not be easy to deceive himself.
In the next stage of the mission you have to destroy the officials in the factory. All you have to do is hack the robot. After the biological cleaning of the robot, your friend comes to help and now you can mess up. If everything is ok, you come face to face with the character you need to destroy. Here you have many options:
- To kill the character and take his head to the woman who wants to destroy the factory and get the reward.
- Collaborating with the man to kill the woman who sent you on this mission!
- Talk and reconcile with both.
The last item sounds a little tricky. We didn’t say it was easy anyway. Yes, for the last item you need to have good dialogue skills. Otherwise, you can screw it up. The main theme here is to give the player as many options as possible. You will see this in many parts of the game already.
This is where the demo ends. You will be able to make your choice when the game comes out in October. Still, we can say that we enjoyed watching the part up to this point. You can watch the video below, where you can find plenty of black humor elements in the game.
If you want to jump into the gameplay, it starts at 04:30.
