I love the setting! And the humor would be welcome. Unfortunately, I very much don't want to play another Fallout game, and this super looks like another Fallout game. Will have to see what it actually turns out to be before I get interested, I guess.

PC Gamer - Their preview on The Outer Worlds.

Quote
Here are some other things I learned about The Outer Worlds:

    It's out in 2019
    It's an Unreal Engine 4 game
    Your protagonist isn't voiced
    There's a special class of "science weapons" that will have special, ridiculous effects, like a shrink ray
    There's a full character creator even though it's first-person only (you'll see your character in the inventory, and if you leave the game idling long)
    Your companions don't have separate inventories. Taking companions with you just gives you more inventory space to work with yourself
    If companions really dislike the decisions you make, they'll leave and go back to the ship. You can persuade them to see things your way
    No romancing companions. They considered it, but decided against it.
    Companions each have a special attack (one named Felix does a double drop kick) but you can also equip them with whatever weapons you want
    Hacking and lockpicking don't have minigames, and are simply based on your attributes
    There are six skills (strength, intelligence etc.) and for every 20 points you put into one (up until 100) you'll gain a new perk
    As in the creators' past games, you can play as a "dumb" character with stupid dialogue options. Your companions react appropriately.
    They're still not sure if it will be possible to play through the game completely pacifist (but you'll almost definitely have to at least kill some robots)
    Robots aren't sentient, but your ship's AI seems to have a strange degree of personality
    Tim Cain wants you to know there are a lot of drugs, but he's not going to pressure you to take them

EGMNow - The Outer Worlds will have multiple endings, could have DLC's, and will NOT have MTX's:

Lots of hopes riding with this one, Microsoft purchase of Obsidian notwithstanding.  Save the scene, guys, if even just for a little while.

Private Division brand is publishing:

It's part of 2K, but usually for specifically publishing Indie games in the small-sized to mid-sized range.

I hope Microsoft stays out of the way, until this game gets finished.

I'm ok with this being a Fallout killer, New Vegas was awesome and Obsidian got screwed over by Bethesda. That being said, Obsidian finally has some money behind it and can now afford to make a triple A game. I don't see them "mainstreaming" their game like Bethesda continually does.
