Since the Outer Worlds has no multiplayer options, it is not cross platform. We believe that this enhances the integrity of the story and provide a much better gaming experience.

While everyone’s playtime will vary, a good average would be 25 hours for a normal playthrough and 35 hours to complete the game. The game is good enough to want to playthrough multiple times, making this a bargain.

Obsidian makes great games, and this is no exception. It is consistently rated well and is a lot of fun. It feels like a good synergy between KOTOR, Mass Effect, and New Vegas.

There are seven planets and an asteroid as well a few space stations to explore. Four of these planets are currently inaccessible. It is widely believed that these will be used in future DLC’s, but there is no official confirmation of that yet.

How to lockpick in The Outer Worlds?

In order to pick a lock in The Outer Worlds, you must first have a Mag-Pick (basically a lockpick in games like Skyrim and Fallout.) When you have one, press the appropriate button for your platform (Square on PS4, “E” on PC, or “X” on XBOX.) A check will be made against your lockpicking skill and, if it is high enough, the lock will open.

How to sleep in The Outer Worlds?

You can sleep in any bed throughout the game unless you are playing on Supernova difficulty. In that case, you will only be able to sleep in your spaceship – The Unreliable. Sleep is instant no matter how much time you set and, after a quick fade to black, you are back in action and the game has moved forward in time.

How to respec in The Outer Worlds?

On The Unreliable, you can find a respec machine that will allow you to respect your character, for a price. 500 bits later, you can be a new man.
