The Outer Worlds Celebrates 5 Million Players

Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds has had five million players since launch. The sci-fi role-playing game launched in October 2019 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC before arriving for Nintendo Switch in June 2020. It would launch for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 with the Spacer’s Choice Edition in March 2023.

Set in the Halcyon system, you’re the Stranger, an inhabitant of Hope, a colony ship that went mysteriously missing. Due to various megacorporations exploiting the system’s resources, they’re struggling to get by. The Stranger must find a way to wake Hope’s inhabitants from cryosleep while assisting the citizenry of Halcyon.

Alternatively, you could side with The Board representing the megacorporations. It’s up to you, and The Outer Worlds offers a variety of skills, weapons and play styles to go with all of the different choices and consequences.

so happy that it's celebrating the 5 mill payer amount

so well deserved. congrats to them fr


That is a high count ! Def. Worth celebrating !


And well deserved. I'm halfway through a playthrough and have enjoyed it thoroughly!
I hope Outer Worlds 2 will have a better budget, would love to see some better graphics and more variety in location. Some of the worlds feel more like arenas than planets. You can tell that this is just due to budget restrictions though, so I'd love to see what they can do if those restraints are lifted / eased.
