As we draw closer to the release date of The Outer Worlds, the new role-playing video game from developer Obsidian Entertainment, more and more information comes to light about the upcoming title. While there's been a number of videos showcasing the game, a new 20-minute video shows off the very beginning of the game. So, be warned if you're wanting to go into the game as fresh as possible.

Specifically, the new video was uploaded by IGN, and you can check it out above. It features the first 20 minutes of gameplay, including the cutscenes, opening dialogue and setting of the stage, and a nice chunk of time where someone is actually playing through the start of the story. A not insignificant amount of the video covers similar ground to what we saw out of Tokyo Game Show 2019, but even so, it's still a new look at all of that -- and the first at the very beginning before being able to wander around.

"Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later than you expected only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony," the video game's website states. "As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter a host of factions all vying for power, who you decide to become will determine the fate of everyone in Halcyon. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable."
