In just one week, players will finally be able to explore the galaxy of the highly-anticipated The Outer Worlds, which promises a rollicking intergalactic good time (as seen in the recently-released launch trailer). However, if you’re looking to experience the game for yourself a bit early, Obsidian is giving players an early glimpse by testing players’ “decision-making skills” on Twitch.
Developer Obsidian Entertainment announced that it will be hosting a “Twitch Plays The Outer Worlds” livestream on Tuesday, October 22, where viewers can get a first-hand glimpse of the upcoming RPG while trying to collaborative play it with others. The stream will be hosted over on Obsidian’s official Twitch channel.
For those unfamiliar with the term, “Twitch Plays” allows viewers to input commands while watching a livestream, which gained widespread popularity with the “Twitch Plays Pokemon“ livestream back in 2014. Since then, numerous other games have been put through the “Twitch Plays” test, such as Dark Souls and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
As Obsidian noted, this livestream marks the first time that a Twitch Plays stream has been done for an unreleased game, making it not only a great pre-launch experience for players to check out the game before release, but an intriguing social experiment in its own right.
In terms of other news related to the game, Obsidian Entertainment has revealed the PC specifications for The Outer Worlds, and so far it seems like the game should be able to run on a wide variety of systems from low-end PCs to much beefier rigs. Obsidian also detailed some launch information for the console versions of the game on PS4 and Xbox One, including its launch times and PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements.
The Outer Worlds will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25, 2019, while the game will also be arriving in the future on Nintendo Switch. In the meantime, you can pre-order the game now over on Amazon before its release next week.
