Obsidian's latest title due out next year. Looks a bit like Fallout New Vegas stylised as Borderlands or Firefly.

I'm all in for this. That's a hell of a trailer.

I'm interested, but I can't help but see comparisons to Borderlands throughout that trailer. I'll be cautiously optimistic I think.

Really looking forward to it :D




Might be their last game before being stuck on the windows 10 store. I really really hope Microsoft doesn't do that with Obisdian and InExile :(

A slight Steam whoops initially flagged a release date of August 6 for this, although that was hastily removed:

If they're still being a bit cagey on the date I wouldn't be surprised if it slips a bit, but hopefully we'll see it this year.

Yeah, we've been talking about it in the Epic Giant Shit thread.

I look forward to playing it in 2020...

I can't help feeling that Obsidian started out with grand plans and then didn't have the budget to see them through and had to scale things back leading to what looks and feels rather rough. Maybe no big shame if I can't play this for a while judging on this footage.

It wasn't an especially good presentation, frankly; after five minutes they seemed to just descend into "lol look at this silly weapon". Still, my feeling on the game hasn't really changed - the style is just a bit too close to Borderlands, a series that now has a sequel coming likely within a few months of this, and Borderlands did it better. I'll keep my mind open though, this could still be pretty good.

Full hour of un-commentated gameplay here for those interested.

Nothing about it particularly grabs my attention at the moment.

From the previews that went up last week it very much sounds like Fallout New Vegas but in a slightly more linear world which sounds good to me.

I'm still very interested in it, but more than happy to wait until it hits other platforms.
