If you've been waiting for your next fix of The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon arrives September 9th.
The most recent Xbox Games Showcase just debuted a couple days ago, and whilst we got a good look at some Halo Infinite campaign gameplay, one of the biggest takeaways was just how busy Obsidian clearly is. The first of which they unveiled was the first DLC expansion for their sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds.
The juggernaut that is Red Dead Redemption 2 dispatched Halo with all the ease of an experienced rustler herding cows, firing a repeater square between Master Chief's eyes. It's become the first game to reach the Grand Final.
In the run up to The Outer Worlds’ launch, all the talking surround DLC was pretty emphatic ‘no’ from developer Obsidian. It was a once-and-done game, the sort of complete package which we, sadly, rarely get these days. 
Yesterday's fight was what I like to call squeaky bum time. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice traded punches for hours on end. Ultimately, there was just a handful in it and Respawn's Star Wars game walked out the victor. Just.
In Obsidian we trust, or so the old saying goes. Not content with giving us the sublime Alpha Protocol, they've only gone and outdone Fallout with The Outer Worlds, a planet-hopping sci-fi romp with humour to spare. It's a joyous little thing and it also happens to run really rather well too, at least on our test rig.
Obsidian probably couldn't have planned The Outer Worlds timing any better. While Bethesda cocks up at every available opportunity, along comes the Fallout: New Vegas developers to show us exactly how a sci-fi RPG should be done. The Outer Worlds has been earning rave reviews and it could be played on PC for as little as $1 through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Nvidia’s latest GeForce Game Ready graphics card driver has arrived with day one support for the release of this week’s two biggest titles - The Outer Worlds. 
Here we go, it’s time for one final peek at Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds before it’s launch time. They’ve dropped a launch trailer for Outer Worlds which pretty much sums up all you need to know about this off-the-wall sci-fi RPG. 
With every AAA publisher seemingly hellbent on chasing the MMO-lite looter shooter cash, Obsidian's Fallout New Vegas, The Outer Worlds is a wholly single-player first-person RPG with a lengthy campaign and none of the microtransaction trappings. So far, so good, but what about what PC hardware you'll need to play The Outer Worlds. Find out with our look at the official PC system specs for The Outer Worlds.
AMD has announced an upgraded game bundle for fans of by-the-numbers sequels. They’re back with another ‘Raise the Game’ bundle offer on select AMD Radeon RX graphics cards, advertising a package of games which includes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint or Borderlands 3, and Gears 5.
