The Outer Worlds 2 Announced
As a part of the Microsoft and Bethesda Games Showcase, Obsidian Entertainment announced that The Outer Worlds 2 is in development. The teaser trailer struck a humorous tone, poking fun at clichéd trailer conventions before admitting that there’s little to show except the title. No details were made regarding a release date or which Xbox platforms the game would appear on. The company confirmed the game would take place in a new galaxy and have a new crew.
The original The Outer Worlds dropped players into a galaxy run by numerous corporations all vying for the system’s resources. Tasked with resurrecting an entire ship’s worth of hibernating humans meant for a flight to a neighboring galaxy, the player must maneuver around the literal and political landscape of the Halcyon system.
