Tags: Obsidian Entertainment; The Outer Worlds

Obsidian unveiled the launch trailer for The Outer Worlds on Friday, a week ahead of the game's release. With three days to go the reviews are out now too. Allowing reviews before launch day is a sign of confidence in a game's quality, and as you'll see that confidence was for the most part well placed. But first, the trailer:


Here's a list of all of today's reviews of The Outer Worlds. There are a lot of them! Scores generally range from high to very high, although a few notable websites chose to ding the game down for playing it too safe. On the whole, it averages a couple of points higher than Fallout: New Vegas.

GameSpot's review also reveals The Outer Worlds' sixth and final companion, who (somewhat predictably) turns out to be an enthusiastic robot named SAM. At this point we've probably seen enough of the game, but in case you want even more, Obsidian will be doing a "Twitch Plays" crowd-directed livestream on their Twitch channel later today at 15:00 PDT.
