See how disguises work in The Outer Worlds

 

Part of the fun of RPGs is that they're dress-up games. You can put on clothes, hats, and armor, and change your looks, hair, and makeup. But while dressing up is fun it's often just about looks—usually, putting on a certain outfit doesn't mean NPCs are fooled into thinking you're someone else. That's why I was interested when I learned that disguises were an option in The Outer Worlds—and I got to try one out during a play session earlier this month. You can see the footage of me using a disguise on a mission above, and you can also watch a full damn hour of The Outer Worlds gameplay video right here. I've also got tons of written impressions of the The Outer Worlds you can read here. body . hawk-widget{--trd-blue:#2f6e91;width:100%;letter-spacing:normal;}.

She's extremely likable but… well, not exactly hospitable. In fact, she's a bit of a crime boss, and after charming my way into her good graces she offered me a dirty job. She asked me to eliminate the owner of a nearby factory, a guy named Clive. She wanted to run the business herself. She didn't care if I killed Clive or just drove him out of business by sabotaging his factory with falsified financial records or by poisoning his alien pigs, so long as he was gone. Malin made a few suggestions about how I might go about getting inside the factory, though. I could shoot my way in, or try to sneak in through the sewers, or just walk right in the front gate—disguised as a worker. That last one sounded good to me, and I acquired a disguise from a local merchant (though I had to lie to him to get it).
