The Outer Worlds is Coming to Xbox Game Pass at Launch in October

Obsidian's newest RPG is getting the first-party Xbox treatment.

Obsidian's next sci-fi RPG, The Outer Worlds, was shown off at today's Xbox E3 2019 press conference. Although The Outer Worlds is published by Take-Two's Private Division label, The Outer Worlds will be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch in October 25.

Outer Worlds is Obsidian's newest RPG. If you're reminded of Fallout: New Vegas, that's on purpose. Outer Worlds promises crazy sci-fi shenanigans, deep RPG elements, but no sight of romance. Instead you'll be able to buddy up with a colorful cast of characters.

Like other Xbox first-party games, The Outer Worlds is coming out day one on Game Pass at launch. While the game itself is published by another company, Obsidian was purchased by Microsoft last year to join its Xbox World Studios.
