Next week, gamers around the globe will have a chance to explore the big, big galaxy in Obsidian's upcoming game 'The Outer Worlds'. But, if you can't wait until October 25th to get your hands on the game, then you will have a chance to play it early via the community event: Twitch Plays 'The Outer Worlds' - which is hosted by Obsidian to test Twitch viewers 'decision-making skills'.

This was announced earlier today by the developers at Obsidian Entertainment. In the announcement, they clarify that the live-stream will be hosted on Tuesday, October 22, to give the viewers a glimpse at the upcoming game, while also trying to progress through the game by collaborating with other viewers. The stream will be available on Obsidian's official Twitch channel.

'Twitch Plays' is the term of a series of video game live-stream on Twitch, that gained popularity back in 2014 with the event of 'Twitch Plays Pokémon'. Viewers joining this event can input the command to the game via Twitch Chat - and as thousands of players trying to input command at the same time, of course, the playthrough will be chaotic. Since the popularity of 'Twitch Plays Pokémon', many other games have been put through the test - including the nail-biting difficult game Dark Souls.

With the upcoming event, it will mark the first time a Twitch Plays event has been held for an unreleased game - and the developers at Obsidian are really confident that they will bring to gamers an exciting pre-launch event for 'The Outer Worlds'.
