How The Outer Worlds Lets You Play Your Way

The Outer Worlds is full of different possibilities, and depending on the choices players make, their experiences with the story and gameplay could vary greatly. That’s a foundational element of the game’s design; co-directors Leonard Boyarsky and Tim Cain have been iterating on how to accommodate player choice since their days working together on the original Fallout. We talked to the duo about why this concept is so important in The Outer Worlds, and the kinds of decisions players can expect during the journey.

Broadly speaking, Obsidian wants you to play The Outer Worlds your own way, including everything from the narrative to the gameplay. “I don’t remember how we came to this formula back when we started working on Fallout, but we just looked at a bunch of games that were out at the time, and it didn’t seem you were given a lot of options in terms of playing however you wanted to play,” Boyarsky says. “There was some player choice, but it was ‘You can be the good guy this way, or you can be the good guy that way.’”

A Short Bio Of Every Jump Force Character

Jump Force has finally launched. Touting 40 playable characters and a handful of others, the Shonen Jump-inspired title has enough prominent folks in it to satisfy a plethora of anime and manga enthusiasts. For those who need to brush up on the lore of the featured heroes and villains, or for those who are completely unfamiliar, but curious – you’ve come to the right place. Below are brief descriptions we’ve compiled to provide some clarity before you jump into the action.

The world-famous protagonist from the Dragon Ball series, Son Goku is Earth’s constant savior. Born a member of the legendary alien Saiyan race, Goku, with the help of his family and friends, has repelled the universe’s most sinister beings for decades.

Goku’s most stubborn rival (and perhaps greatest friend?) and the Prince of the Saiyans, Vegeta is the series’ quintessential anti-hero. After a devastating defeat, he joins forces with Earth’s heroes to combat greater threats to humanity and the universe.

As in previous Far Cry games, your main focus will be taking down outposts, doing story missions and side activities, and looting everything in sight. However, here are some things to keep in mind as you get acquainted with this entry’s particular quirks and changes.
