Obisidian: New game from the makers of Fallout and Outer Worlds

Today the Xbox console is celebrating its 20th birthday! In addition, we have prepared a trivia test for you, which will put your Xbox knowledge to the test. Microsoft and Xbox had an excellent year and with titles such as Flight Simulator, Forza Horizon 5, Age of Empires 4 and Psychonauts 2, they offered something for every gamer’s taste.

What new Xbox games are coming?

Even after the anniversary, that should not decrease, because Microsoft is supposedly already taking care of replenishment. Two alleged Xbox Exclusive games were recently leaked. According to Leak Compulsion, the makers of We Happy Few, are working on a project called “Midnight”, and Obsidian, known for Fallout: New Vegas, are working on a game called “Pentiment”.

What is the “Midnight” project?

Compulsion is one of the development studios that Microsoft bought out. With their first work We Happy Few they showed a lot of potential, thanks to the fascinating concept of a twisted Britain. The next game from the Xbox studio was code-named “Midnight”, according to Leak.

Allegedly, “Midnight” will be an action-packed single player game set in a fantastic world. According to the Windows Central report, it will be a coming-of-age story with a dark and creepy atmosphere, drawing on inspiration from the deep South of America.

Early concept art of the game is also available to the magazine, depicting the protagonist and harpy-like humanoids. Accordingly, there should be magic and great fantastic beasts in the game.

There is no set release date for Project “Midnight” yet, and since the game has not yet been officially announced, we will probably have to wait a long time for a release date if it turns out to be real.

New game from Obsidian Entertainment

Obsidian’s next game is said to be produced by a small development group led by Josh Sawyer. Sawyer made a name for himself as one of the main creators of Fallout: New Vegas, one of Obsidian’s most popular games.

The game is to be called “Pentiment”, which means something like “an underlying image in a painting, especially an image that has become visible because the top layer of paint has become transparent over time”.

In keeping with the title, the player is supposed to slip into the role of an investigator in Europe in the 16th century to uncover a gruesome murder. The game is said to be based on dialogue-heavy role-playing games like Disco Elysium, with the branched narratives for which Josh Sawyer is known. The player should be able to investigate and make allegations against the characters in the game, which can lead to consequences.

The developers of “Pentiment” should also deal with experimental gameplay elements. Since the team has not yet officially commented on this game, it remains to be seen whether these elements will also be included in the final product.
