Control a human player & name your hero. The Outer Worlds uses a reputation system which can affect the hero’s relations with several parties living in the world which you can join.

A day / night cycle is available in the game but no co-op mode is included. Also you cannot change first person camera to third person. Boss battles are not included but there are clashes in which you can face harder enemies than normal.

Control androids in this game but you can’t manipulate aliens. You can finish story mode without using the help of allies. Companions can help you in various ways especially when you finish their side missions which will improve their battle abilities.


The game’s story is fascinating as the story is set in future. You cannot control the space ship directly but can stop at various points. Recruiting Non playable characters is a big fun as they have their own stories. You can also slow down time in combat in order to know about the health of enemies which can give you a strategic advantage.
