Something to look forward to: If you are among the many gamers who were disappointed with the release of Bethesda's Fallout 76, Obsidian's latest game reveal might come as a breath of fresh air. 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. Dubbed The Outer Worlds, the game is an RPG in every sense of the word - there are perks, skill checks, an emphasis on player choice, and several companions to befriend. "It affects everything in the game - the setting, the characters, the dialogs".

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

As for the game itself, The Outer Worlds is set to make its debut sometime in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

One of The Outer Worlds' more unique features is its "Flaws" system.

Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns to four interceptions and has completed almost 68 percent of his passes. He is a finalist for the award with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa .

However The Outer Worlds turns out, it may be hard for Bethesda's eventual take on the space RPG not to feel like retreaded ground. In it, you are a part of a colonist ship heading to the far reaches of outer space.

Back in 2017, sources told TweakTown that Fallout creator Tim Cain was working on a new RPG for New Vegas developer Obsidian, and that it'd be the studio's answer to the Fallout franchise.

Geoff Keighley and Obsidian teased the game's announcement last week with the tagline, "Worlds Will Change".
