In October of this year, The Outer Worlds, the promising new RPG from Obsidian Entertainment will be released. And he will do so by betting on a narrative component that could show the “dark side” ” of capitalism, as recognized by creative director Leonard Boyarsky. Are we then facing an adventure of strong political charge? Not at all, according to the study member, they have been very careful not to “lecture” ” to users with the themes that appear in the game.
The story of The Outer Worlds is about power and how it is used against people who do not have it ” It’s the last thing we want to do “, added Boyarsky in a chat with VGC. In his declarations to the specialized portal, I wanted to emphasize that the story of The Outer Worlds is more about “power and how it is used against people who do not have it” ” and not so much a critique of capitalism. ” I like money: I have nothing against capitalism and in many ways I am happy with our society. Obviously there is a lot to improve on ” I’ve added, remembering that since the videogame began its development in April 2016, a couple of things have happened in international politics that few could expect.
” I do not want people to think that this is really difficult, a game with a strong political charge: it has to be fun and maintain its humorous touch. Having grown up in America with a very present consumer culture, we are very familiar with the subject and it is common for us to joke about it, “commented the creative, insisting that the last thing they want is to provoke a sense of” sermon “” in the player. ” It’s really about seeing all aspects of the problems ” he explained.
” But just like Arcanum in 2001, when we deal with racial problems, the story always revolves around the balance in power, the way people use it and get it. We have been very careful with the theme, “I have recalled, adding that in The Outer Worlds they have characters with philosophies that he does not share in which he has put all his effort to make them pleasant, sensitive and credible. & Quot; And There will be others with whom I share ideas and with whom I would never spend a while.
To see if he is right in these statements, we will not have to wait long. Worlds has its release scheduled for October 25 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
