Welcome to Halcyon colony, where the lowest aptitude test scores are fine

The Outer Worlds has a new trailer to show you how wonderful Halcyon is. Wonderful with a big fat disclaimer though.

Obsidian Entertainment’s trailer was shown at Pax West and now we can see it too. It shows off the many great reasons to go to Halcyon and what kind of work the people there are doing, as well as the dangers they will face.

The disconnect between the cheerful narration and the horrible living conditions, death and destruction we see calls to mind how companies sometimes sugarcoat things, hoping you won’t notice until it is too late, because you signed the forms and signed your life away.

“Do you dream of working on the frontier of space? Can you pass a basic aptitude test? Then Halcyon is the place for you! Prosperity and adventure awaits on Terra 2, Monarch, and other exciting locations across the Halcyon colony. The character you decide to become will determine how your story on the Halcyon colony unfolds in The Outer Worlds.”

It gives a peek at some of the weapons and enemies we will be facing come 25 October. The Outer Worlds is on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is part of Xbox Game Pass.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
