A teaser for The Outer Worlds has appeared on Obsidian's official website which suggests something new could be on the horizon. 

Obsidian posted a tweet informing all employees of Halcyon that "The Board" has acquired a part of The Outer Worlds website. Now, when you visit the site, you'll be greeted with a teaser telling you to "Stay tuned for another special message from Spacer's Choice", complete with the fictional company's mascot, Moon Man. It doesn't reveal much more than that, but it looks like we can expect to see The Outer Worlds news very soon.

The space-faring adventure filled with Obsidian's signature humour first released back in October last year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, before recently releasing on the Switch just last month at the start of June. Now that it's officially released on all platforms, we could potentially see some new content coming to The Outer Worlds in the shape of some kind of expansion. In fact, late last year, Obsidian announced that The Outer Worlds would be getting story DLC in 2020, so this teaser could give us more insight into this new story content. 

In The Outer Worlds, you wake up from Cryosleep on a colonist ship that's headed for the far reaches of the galaxy. Propelled decades into the future and caught up in a conspiracy threatening the Halcyon Colony, the story of the adventure greatly hinges on the choices you make, which influence the overall outcome of the game in true RPG style. It'll be exciting to see just what this special message turns out to be.

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
