Obsidian Entertainment has released a new trailer for its highly anticipated RPG The Outer Worlds, giving players an expanded look at the Halcyon colony, which includes areas such as Terra 2 and Monarch. The Outer Worlds is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and is due out next month.

Check out the new trailer for The Outer Worlds below.
Do you dream of working on the frontier of space? Can you pass a basic aptitude test? Then Halcyon is the place for you! Prosperity and adventure awaits on Terra 2, Monarch, and other exciting locations across the Halcyon colony. The character you decide to become will determine how your story on the Halcyon colony unfolds in The Outer Worlds.
The Outer Worlds is scheduled for release on October 25, which is already a pretty big day for games seeing as how Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is also out that same day.
Obsidian’s latest RPG definitely sounds pretty ambitious, least of all because you’re apparently able to kill any NPC in the game, even those associated with quests. There’s a backup if you do that, of course, but still, this isn’t something you usually see; The Elder Scrolls, for example, made quest-specific NPCs invulnerable.
Pleasingly, the studio has confirmed that microtransactions will not be featured in The Outer Worlds.
Here’s the official blurb on The Outer Worlds straight from the horse’s mouth:
Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later than you expected only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony.
As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter a host of factions all vying for power, who you decide to become will determine the fate of everyone in Halcyon. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.
