The Outer Worlds is the latest RPG from Obsidian Entertainment which leverages its incredible writing to create memorable characters. Thankfully, some of these characters are capable of being recruited as companions! Their main job is to aid you in combat, but you'll also find them interjecting during conversations with other NPC's on occasion. The companion system in The Outer Worlds is quite expansive, and this guide will serve as a deep-dive into companion mechanics, including how to recruit each of the six companions! Additionally, this guide was created to be as spoiler-free as possible.
If you’ve glanced at the most played games on Twitch in the past few months, you’ve likely noticed a few unfamiliar titles rising to the top of the ranks. Team Fight Tactics? Dota Underlords? What is all this stuff? In short: it’s auto chess, and it’s gaming’s newest genre.
If you actually attempted to watch a stream of one of the above games being played, chances are you became even more confused. At any given moment there’s a ton of action happening on screen at once, but no clear reason as to how or why. But worry not. Auto chess games certainly look confusing on the surface, but once you have a basic understanding of what makes the genre tick, it will all fall into place.
