Obsidian Teases Mysterious Sci-fi Game Reveal for The Game Awards

Spacer's choice.

Obsidian is teasing a new game reveal for this year's The Game Awards with a series of mysterious, sci-fi-themed pop-up ads appearing on the Obsidian homepage.

A mysterious counter set to countdown to The Game Awards appeared on Obsidian's website today along with a series of mysterious logos. Click to close the counter and players are greeted with a pop-up ad for some (fictional) space products, no doubt related to whatever game Obsidian is set to reveal.

Not much is known about the project other than judging by some of the ads and logos it could be sci-fi in setting. The ads include old-fashioned looking pictures for something called "Spacer's Choice" and "Auntie Cleo's." We've captured the two ads and posted them below.

No word yet on what the game is or what type of game it will be, probably an RPG. It's also unclear if this is the same project Obsidian is developing for Take-Two's Private Division. Obsidian was recently purchased by Microsoft to become a developer under the Xbox label so really anything is possible.

Obsidian's last game was Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire which was received positively, though it didn't meet sales expectations. Whatever Obsidian is cooking up next we'll see when The Game Awards goes live next week December 6 at 5:30 PM PST/8:30 PM EST.
