The Outer Worlds is the GWJ CRPG's Club's 15th winner, winning the vote by a single vote over Torment: Tides of Numenera.
The Outer Worlds is first-person action role-playing game published in 2019 by Obsidian Entertainment. Create a character, take on NPC companions, and explore an alternate future based on what the world would be like if President McKinley were not assassinated in 1901.
The game is playable on Windows, PS4, XBox One, and Nintendo Switch. There are also two expansion DLCs that add extra content to the game. Those are optional for completion purposes.
We'll be playing this game until December 31, 2021. This thread is for friendly discussion as we play through the game. Share your reflections, successes, defeats, tactics, wishes, impressions, and whatever here! The more conversation the better, so post away.
For BIG spoilers, please use the spoiler tag. (No! I am your father!) Tactics, strategies, general story progression likely won't need them.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate, and can start at any time, so join the fun! One quick favor: If you decide to play, make a post here along the lines of "I'm in!" to let us know. If you start and finish the game before the end, you'll level up your GWJ CRPG Membership.
