The Outer Worlds’ latest trailer encourages you to uproot your life and join the Halcyon colony on one of the game’s planets.

The trailer takes place across both Terra 2 and Monarch, two planet colonised by Halcyon, the mega-corporation that seems to be behind many of the game’s events. This trailer takes a fun, light tone, presenting itself as a travel commercial – which is apt, I suppose, since part of the joy of The Outer Worlds will be exploring these planets and trying not to get your face ripped off by the vicious local wildlife.

The employment communities of Terra 2 look a bit run down and sad, whereas Monarch looks gritter and more dangerous – at least from this one trailer. We’re also shown off the game’s wild mix of guns and melee weapons, which look like silly fun – there even seems to be a shrink way, and they’re always a good time.

The Outer Wilds looked good in our hands-on preview, and will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on October 25. It’s also coming to Switch at some point, incredibly, although if it’s a success the sequel will likely be an Xbox exclusive.
