So you’ve got your colonist in mind.
But before you head out on your grand adventures across the cosmos, you should consider exactly what type of build you’re going for.
The Outer Worlds allows players to roll many different characters, from hammer-wielding rough and tumble types, to clever mechanics, turning droids and weapons on the enemy.
Rather than merely sinking points into lock picking, for example, you’ll invest in the stealth category which also encompasses sneaking and lockpicking.
Once you hit certain thresholds, you can begin to specialize in the distinct skills within each category.
These roles such as a cashier, factory worker, or medical technician reflect what you were or would have been, had the colony ship not been lost among the stars.
