Metacritic (86) | Opencritic (85)

Dualshockers - 9.5/10

With the best writing of any game thus far in 2019, any fan of RPGs needs to play The Outer Worlds.

GameInformer - 9.3/10

Even if the larger beats don’t always land, The Outer Worlds shines with a constant stream of small, bright moments. An amusing interaction with a clueless guard. A sugary corporate jingle. A brutal sneak attack. A solution to a problem you are sure won’t work, but it does. The team at Obsidian excels at encouraging creative experimentation within its responsive and absurd setting, ensuring that every visit to Halcyon is full of delightful surprises.

GamesBeat - 9.1/10

The Outer Worlds is Obsidian's final game as an independent company (it's now part of Xbox Game Studios), and it's one helluva swansong.

GameSpot - 9/10

The Outer Worlds is consistently compelling throughout, and it's a superb example of how to promote traditional RPG sensibilities in a sharp, modern experience.

Destructoid - 9/10

Obsidian has out-Fallouted recent Fallout efforts.

IGN - 8.5/10

With The Outer Worlds, Obsidian has found its own path in the space between Bethesda and BioWare's RPGs, and it's a great one.

PC Gamer - 79/100

There's a category of games I think of as Saturday morning cartoon games. They lack depth, but they are fluffy and easy to enjoy. As I look back on some screenshots as Pippin laser blasts a poor marauder into a pile of dust, I realise that's what The Outer Worlds is to me. If you meet it on those terms, I think you'll enjoy it.

It looks awesome. Meta is quite good too. From the few reviews I've read and watched... I'm impressed. Relatively bug free, much to the disgust of Bethesda. 😂


I can't wait to jump in and get started. I haven't been playing games much all year, hopefully outer worlds kick-starts my gaming again.

Can you pre-download this on game pass?

I look forward to the game, as I love Obsidian. That's why I am salty Microsoft snatched them away from the multiplat-market. But this game will at least will be available outside of MS-platforms. And the Critic-score is holding up well enough, so it seems to have no major issue holding it back.

They were once a more PC orientated developer anyway.



I almost skipped this game cause some idiot at Private division said only thr X1x was getting enhaments. Thankfully someone at obsidian vonfirmed that they will be upscaling from 1400p to 4k on pro but will lqvk about 20gigs of texture packs that the x1x will be getting, which I'm cool with as my internet has been trottled now for the month. Reviews look great and now with the enhanments sorted, I'm in. Thank god there this game is releasing so I can bare having to continue my boycott of Actiblizz and CoD MW. Something i was sure this title would break. Preordering tonight in time for the preload (I hope).

Oh, an MS snagged a great studio. Considering their next title will be XB exclusive they really nailed it, Here's hoping they don't Rare-ify them and keep the promises made, hell, they could easily get me on board year one with Next box if they play it right.

Big win for Microsoft and Obsidian, this could become a very solid franchise.



Sounds good. I'll have to pick this up later on when the price drops.
