Combat isn’t your only option in The Outer Worlds, but boy is it fun. Late in the demo, I wander into a town and am tasked with taking down an operation that’s hamstringing the town. I have options to do it: I can either stealthily steal a piece from his building, or kill him, or work with him. I actually blew my cover early on, unintentionally, and found myself in an all-out gunfight (the kind of thing that happens to me in these demos often), and while I see the obvious pathways I could have taken to stealth my way in (some tunnels, plenty of hiding spots, etc.), I don’t regret the firefight.
