The Outer Worlds Player Beats Game on Max Difficulty, Non-Lethal Run

YouTube gamer Kyle Hinckley took a challenge to beat The Outer Worlds in hardcore difficulty and without killing anyone.

Within weeks of its worldwide release on all major platforms, sci-fi action role-playing game The Outer Worlds by developer Obsidian Entertainment and publisher Private Division has been making all sort of positive buzz in gaming world.

Since the game is offering players a bucket load of choices to pursue that adds value of replayability, anyone can choose to do anything and one player among all decided to avoid violence and play like a complete pacifist.

YouTuber Kyle Hinckley took a path to of peace where he keep away from killing anyone directly and see what that leads him to. If that was not already tricky enough to pull, he chose to do that in Supernova, toughest difficulty of the game.

Obsidian actually allows players to complete many in-game main quests without having to murder anyone. If there seem to be a situation where that doesn't seem like a viable option, you just need to come up with a way somehow.

In one of his missions, he had to use a computer to wrap things up but there were two caterpillars on his way and he had to hide but since he cannot use the PC without alerting them, a tactical time dilation became his solution.

Another case presented a situation where he had to enter in a room with a character but it would lead to crashes. So, he made that NPC to do his bidding by using a mind control ray that lead into them attacking one another and he moves forward.

Doing this has made the game completely skip an impending cut-scene for some reason but let Hinckley proceed anyway. In most cases, he simply talked his way out of troubles or simply ran away from clashes when deemed necessary.

Not only he was busy evading conflicts but also focused on none would get hurt by any of his cohorts too by setting them to passive mode. Occasionally, he used many tools and weapons to affect circumstances but never directly for killing.

Kyle uploaded a series of playthrough videos on his YouTube channel "The Weirdist" for viewers to enjoy and here is where it all starts.

Surviving in a hostile alien world of Halcyon requires skill and therefore, his character is armed with high charm and temperament. Though he lacked experience due to no combat, but smaller stuffs like hacking and lock picking took care of that.

The Outer Worlds is currently available on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a Steam release to follow soon as well. A port for Nintendo Switch has also been announced lately for an early 2020 release.

News came out earlier that TOW will be a pre-release title for Twitch Plays, starting from October 22, 3 PM PT/6 PM EST. It would surely be interesting to see a playthrough ahead of official launch and what story we ended up on.

The Outer Worlds is going to become first ever unreleased Twitch Plays title ever but unlike many other games, it will not have an open-ended outcome because of a player-driven narrative and could lead to total chaos all over.

Back in 2014, Twitch Plays was introduced as an interactive stream where viewers will make in-game decisions by typing into chat and then a bot will input those commands into game, which turned out to be a huge success for the platform.

Initial test run for their steam was Twitch Plays Pokémon and it took so long to complete as people were driving player character in wrong directions every time but the social experiment was proven to be a success nevertheless.

Since RPG titles are driven by choice, it may go so many ways and apparently, Obsidian is on board with that idea of marketing because it will create an anarchical playstyle with some contribution from community which completely suits TOW.

The Outer Worlds will arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms very shortly, followed by a Nintendo Switch version that was announced a few months back, to take players to Halcyon colony on edge of the galaxy.
