Megan Starks, Obsidian’s narrative designer, has given an interview in which she has acknowledged that many fans identify The Outer Worlds with another one of the studio’s works. Fallout New Vegas. It’s not a comparison that worries them.
” I think the team is happy with that comparison, ” said Starks at a meeting with the WccfTech portal. ” It’s hard to get away from that a bit, because it’s a new IP, but it’s also created by the same team that developed Fallout at the time and which, in addition, is signed by the studio that created Fallout New Vegas. Also, some studio members are fans of that game, like me. “
” So, I think we’re doing a classic Obsidian-style RPG, individual, with a rich history and with many choices, but at the same time we try to inject a dark sense of humor to all of it, “commented the creative.
During the past E3 2019 we had the opportunity to see the game first-hand, and you can consult from our GamesFreeBulletin impressions with The Outer Worlds.
