    Yeah, New Vegas was ace, so an original IP from the same people, that riffs off several big titles while (hopefully) having its own unique identity? I'm in.

    This looks really cool but I actually wish it wasn't coming out so soon. Would love to play it on PS5 with extra juice.

    Might be one of those games they do on both. Like they did with GTA V.

    So little about this and it's close for release.

    That's not usually a good thing is it.

    They own the studio but didn't aquire until this was already developed.

    If they make a sequel with be a Microsoft platform exclusive.

    Read somewhere today that XB1X will be the only console to play this with 4k style enhancements I.e. no PS4 Pro support at all. I really cant see that surely not, but maybe it's something to do with their acquisition from Microsoft.

    If money now buys visual tweaks/exclusive patches, we live in a bad time ;)

    Also really expected to see a very big thread on this game, seems to be little to no buzz at all which is always a concern. Hopefully it turns out well

    THis looks like another Fallout game which is hopefully a good thing. I've pre loaded it already to give it a try at some point. Hope its good but the lack of buzz around it isn't encouraging.

    If it’s free on game pass at launch then it’s clearly not very good.

    Definitely one in going to wait for. See what the consensus is after it's released.

    Not sure that logic holds, Gears of War 5 was great and there are plenty of other games that have been available at launch that are very good.

    I fully expect this to be a buggy mess so I'll be avoiding it for at least a few months but I think it'll scratch that Fallout itch once it's patched :)

    You do post some daft things.

    Microsoft owns Obsidian Entertainment, and they want to put all first and second party games on game pass at launch.

    Turns out it was poor miss information and the game will benefit on both the X and Pro. It did sound ridiculous to not support Pro features so glad that's cleared up.

    I watched some gameplay last night, I'll await reviews personally. The fallout games weren't lookers either generally, bit were great games to many. This one looks dated visually but maybe it makes up for that with a great game.

    And the gamepass comment above is just silly. Added to the fact that NOTHING is free on Gamepass. It's a service you pay for. Picky as it may be, it hurts my brain when I see "free on ps plus, games with gold, gamepass etc." Its not free.

    No one says breaking bad is free with netflix :D

    Rant over

    Just wondering if anyone knows anything about The Outer Worlds which is being released on Friday?
    Is it going to be like Fallout?
    I'm a big fan of Skyrim and Fallout style games and looking for something to tide me over until Cyber Punk is released next year.

    It's basically Fallout in outer space, it's developed by the company who did Fallout: New Vegas.
