The Outer Worlds' PAX West trailer wants you to 'Come to Halcyon'

The Outer Worlds came to PAX West and released a new trailer that previews Obsidian's next effort.


There's only a few weeks remaining before The Outer Worlds releases, but there's still more that Obsidian Entertainment and publisher Private Division are looking to show off to the gaming public. Members of the development team greeted a packed house at PAX West 2019 and offered the captive audience a special surprise in the form of a new trailer that introduces players to the Halcyon colony.

The trailer shows off many of the locales that players can expect to see over the course of The Outer Worlds. It also shows off the untamed wildlands of Monarch, filled with monsters and wild creatures. It also covers the many different features that the game entails, including weaponry, dialogue-driven story development, character flaw system, and The Outer Worlds' many, many different corporations, all of which make basically anything that you ever get your hands on over the course of your adventure. It's an effective overview for what's looking to be a comprehensive adventure.

If you're eager to learn how these various systems work, you'll want to consider brushing up on our hands-on preview from earlier this summer. That goes into some more detail on the game's dialogue system and some of its mission structure. And if you're looking to hear from the game's developers themselves, be sure to brush up on our E3 2019 interview below.

The time for The Outer Worlds is almost here. The game is set to release on October 25 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you own an Xbox One, you'll be able to get it on day one from Xbox Game Pass. If you own a Nintendo Switch, your version of The Outer Worlds is coming soon.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
