A thing I've found myself saying, over and over and over again throughout the past eight years, is, "When are the people behind Fallout: New Vegas gonna make another game?" That title, which arrived all the way back in 2010, was a goddamn blast, an un-put-downable RPG that delivered virtually everything I wanted out of a Fallout game. In the years since, it's been rumored that Obsidian might release a New Vegas follow-up (New Orleans has been a frequently-rumored location for that apparently non-existent game), but despite all that rumormongering, nothing's happened.
This is the first trailer for The Outer Worlds, a brand-new first-person RPG from Obsidian and Private Division. Developed by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky (co-creators of the original Fallout), it's basically "Fallout, but in space". We don't know much else about the game at this time, but that's more than enough to have the BMD crew throwing around high-fives and downing celebratory shots. This thing looks awesome.
Needless to say, we are hyped to learn more, and will be keeping our ears to the ground for further updates as they roll in. For the time being, let's just celebrate the fact that a new first-person RPG from the makers of Fallout: New Vegas is headed our way.
