Obsidian's making a first person sci-fi game called The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds will be a single-player RPG set on "the frontier of space", according to the trailer's narrator - but a frontier that big-brand corporations have bought out and run for their own financial needs. You'll be in first-person for the most part, but other in-game systems haven't been shown yet, so we don't know how levelling up works, or how player stats will impact skills. "It affects everything in the game - the setting, the characters, the dialogs". Set in a quirky sci-fi universe filled to the brim with humor, attractive vistas, and risky aliens, the game manages to blend elements of Fallout, Mass Effect, and even Bioshock into one package. However, based on the 15-minute gameplay demo we've seen so far, the environments look plenty open-ended already - or at least, they do a good job giving you the illusion of being open-ended.

KitGuru Says: The Outer Worlds isn't quite what I expected, but the humour hooked me in and the story sounds darker than the colourful aesthetic would have us believe. Unlike Cyberpunk 2077, it doesn't seem like there are any exceptions to that rule in the form of third-person cutscenes or a third-person vehicle camera.
