Twitch chat plays The Outer Worlds and immediately spirals out of control

A Twitch stream for The Outer Worlds let chat control what happened in the game, and it started out exactly how you would expect a game controlled by Twitch chat would.

The Outer Worlds is the latest game from Obsidian Entertainment and those who have played it seem to be enjoying it so far, with some comparisons even being made between Outer Worlds and Fallout: New Vegas – which was also made by Obsidian.

Like any game company trying to build hype for their latest release, Obsidian took to Twitch to bring gameplay to the masses, and someone had the bright idea to let Twitch chat control The Outer Worlds on their own in another edition of Twitch plays.

How does Twitch chat play a game on Twitch?

Obsidian’s playthrough involved one of the most beloved Twitch chat traditions – spamming in chat.

On the bottom of the overlay, there were commands listed and what chat could enter/spam to control the game, for instance typing “AIM” would have the character aim down the sights.

It’s an interesting way to get players who might not have the game yet involved, but Twitch chat ended up using their newfound power to murder one of the first NPCs you encounter in the game.

After skipping through the chat options (who reads those all the way through anyway?) chat started blasting away in the general direction of poor Guard Pelham.

The first shots were too high until a few 5heads in chat managed to aim the gun down and look through the sights to finish the deed.

Taking out the guard was a pretty impressive feat, considering there were over 1,000 people participating in the Twitch chat playthrough at the time of writing and it seemed to be a challenge just to move in any one direction consistently. 

It’s still a lot of fun to watch though.

When does The Outer Worlds come out?

Obsidian’s Twitch plays stream happened on October 22, three days before The Outer Limits official release date of October 25.

Based on the reviews so far The Outer Worlds could end up being one of the biggest games to come out this holiday season, but only time will tell.

At least Twitch chat seems to be having fun, right?

EA SPORTS has unveiled a new Ultimate Team Flashback SBC for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest solutions, total cost, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it quickly and cheaply.

It’s been a few weeks but we’ve finally received another Flashback SBC in FUT, this time for storied Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain who now plays stateside for Inter Miami.

This new card is meant to celebrate his prolific 2009-2010 LaLiga Santander season where Higuain scored 29 total goals to lead Real Madrid in the category and have the second most in LaLiga behind Messi himself. It’s typically considered a high point in his career and that’s certainly reflected in this card’s upgraded stats.

Everything you need to unlock this new Flashback item can be found below, starting with the in-game stats, to help you determine whether or not he’s worth it.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC in-game stats

Stats for Higuain’s new Flashback card.

First things first, Gonzalo’s Pace has been supercharged here, going from 65 on his current Gold card to 89 here, an increase of 24 points overall.

Dribbling also gets a decent upgrade up to 86 from 80, and Shooting is at 88 here instead of 85 like normal. This card is easily a massive upgrade, but it’s up to you to decide if the price is right.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC requirements & cost

As far as SBCs go, this one is fairly cheap, compared to some others that we’ve seen come out lately. All together it should run you about 80,000 to 95,000 FUT to complete, depending on which platform you play on.

That being said, there is only one set of requirements to knock out as well if you decide to unlock this card. Here are the requirements:

  • Number of players from Real Madrid: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC cheapest solutions

Here are the two cheapest solutions we could find for this SBC, neither requiring any loyalty or position change cards.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC expiration date

If you’re still on the fence about completing this SBC, you don’t have that much time to make up your mind as it will only be around for another 7 days until Saturday, January 23.
