Twitch Plays The Outer Worlds

Greetings employees of Halcyon,

As you may be aware, The Board will be conducting a team-building exercise with all of you in order to gauge your decision-making abilities, communication skills, and leadership qualities today at 3PM PDT (UTC -7).  Join us at the official Obsidian Twitch channel for this glorious opportunity to help better Halcyon for all mankind!

Twitch Plays The Outer Worlds

During this exercise, you will be taking control of the protagonist (or antagonist depending on your choices) and will have the ability to choose to stay true your Company and help The Halcyon Holdings Corporate Board, and subsequently you and all other Halcyon employees, or to help advance the aspirations of the outlaw Phineas Welles.

To do your job and control the avatar in this exercise, you will need to issue commands via Twitch chat, which will be shown in a legend at the bottom of the video.

In order for you all to work together to control the avatar, we will take each of your commands every half second and issue the most commonly chosen one to the avatar.  Cooperation is key if you are going to survive the wilderness of The Outer Worlds!

The avatar you will control has been built to have very high temperament to withstand combat better and has some skill in 2 handed melee combat, ranged weapons, and stealth.  It is recommended that as your avatar increases his capabilities, you obtain more skill in leadership so that you will have more control over your avatar's companions to aid you on your journey.

We've also equipped your HUD with a compass and objective marker to track your objectives in order to facilitate your work.  Use those tools to investigate reports of an abandoned ship that landed on the outskirts of Edgewater. This is your task.

Good luck employees, and do The Board proud!
