The Outer Worlds Dev Obsidian Talks Inspirations, Alpha Protocol and More

Richard Walker

Later this month, we'll be blasting off into the far reaches of space for a bout of exploration amid The Outer Worlds, Obsidian Entertainment's sci-fi Fallout-inspired action RPG, sporting lasers, electro cannons, a wealth of dialogue options, branching narrative bits, and a dark sense of humour.

While we had some extensive hands-on time with the game (check out our impressions here), we also had the opportunity to talk with Senior Narrative Designer Carrie Patel, discussing other inspirations besides Fallout (Obsidian being the folks behind Fallout: New Vegas, of course), life under Microsoft, and whether the studio would ever be interested in going back to 2010 spy RPG Alpha Protocol.

For some insights into The Outer Worlds ahead of its launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 25th October, hit up our interview below.
