[PC] Epic - The Outer Worlds - $39.58 AUD - Green Man Gaming


According to ITAD this is the all time lowest price for this game.

From the website:

The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division.

Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

Key Features

The player-driven story RPG: In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios.
You can be flawed, in a good way: New to The Outer Worlds is the idea of flaws. A compelling hero is made by the flaws they carry with them. While playing The Outer Worlds, the game tracks your experience to find what you aren't particularly good at. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately. This optional approach to the game helps you build the character you want while exploring Halcyon.
Lead your companions: During your journey through the furthest colony, you will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations, and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals, or turn them to your own ends.
Explore the corporate colony: Halcyon is a colony at the edge of the galaxy owned and operated by a corporate board. They control everything… except for the alien monsters left behind when the terraforming of the colony’s two planets didn’t exactly go according to plan. Find your ship, build your crew, and explore the settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.

    Inb4 the obligatory 'but it's on gamepass'

    • Is the business model for game pass similar to gym memberships?

      180 for every game and online access is crazy good but how does Microsoft make any money. How do they work out how much to pay devolpers?

        Devs get paid a large sumto have the game on their service and then bonus payments for every x amount of downloads.

      • MS don't have to make money. They pay to get the market share to keep its leading position.

  • Crazy good game. If you're on the fence on whether or not to play it, it's one of those games where I bought it just to support the developers.

    Great developers and a fun game for anyone who enjoys western RPGs and good storytelling. Be warned that it is short, with the intention being that you choose other play styles and story paths when you replay it. Much of the combat mechanics are quite samey, so if that's your highest priority you'd best wait for the price to be lower.

    • Had a quick play of it.. Didn't really grab me like Fallout series or finesse of Skyrim.. Does it get better?

      • No, I don't think so. I like the game. But it's not like Fallout 4 or Skyrim. There are no much to explore in the outer worlds apart from the story-telling.

    • I dont really see any value in reply. The story is great and its like a digital fiction of atlas shrugs (I know its actually bio shock). But it's pretty linear. Although there are a few endings, story-wise they are pretty similar and I got the full picture with just one play-thru. The world itself is small and not really much to explore. Even for a Completionists style, I can finish the game in 40hrs.
