After spending some time with pre-existing IPs like Star Wars and Fallout, Obsidian has moved on to a wholly new property that takes the developer's experience with RPGs and combines it with their love of science fiction.
The universe of The Outer Worlds is one of corporate greed that sees most forms of discrimination fall to the wayside in favor of classism and employers' rights.
In an interview with Game Informer, co-directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky said that 15-40 hours is a reasonable frame of reference for the average player.
Essentially, Obsidian wanted to focus more of its time and resources into the game's reactivity and replayability and less on the characters' bangability.
The Outer Worlds caters to all sorts of playstyles, whether you like to blast through everything in your path or prefer the silent and stealthy approach.
The developers aren't entirely certain if the game can be beaten without killing anyone (though they hope so), but players can give it a go to see just how far they can make it without drawing blood.
