We're told that The Outer Worlds was a commercial success and back in December Obsidian announced that story DLC would be forthcoming in 2020. It's been four months since then and there's been zero news about that, though they continue to reassure us that something is on the way. Now the game is getting the documentary treatment from Noclip, the crowdfunded video game documentary production company founded by Irish gaming journalist Danny O'Dwyer. Perhaps that's a sign that it's coming out of hibernation. The first episode out of a planned five is entitled From Concept to Creation. It begins as you'd expect with an introduction to the careers of Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky. The episode has some details about the game's conception but it's really mostly about the creation, offering a broad look at various issues Obsidian faced during development. There's also plenty of concept art and gameplay footage from early builds.
