If you do the right things and I think pass a speech check you can actually convince the community to return to the city. The effectively take it over, but it's the best solution.
I started "Outer Worlds" on the XBox last December. It is an open world RPG quite similar to Fallout New Vegas.
It came out for Windows, PS4 and XBox where it was part of the XBox Game Pass, so many people played it instantly.
It was a big financial success. The game´s developer "Obsidian" was bought by Microsoft in 2018, a year before release.
I did not finish the game yet - I´m only past the first planet somewhere in space - but there are quite some things that I find oddly similar to NWO related topics. I´m not sure if the game´s final message is pro-NWO or critical of it, but considering that it is heavily endorsed by Microsoft, maybe the answer is easy.
On the very first planet where the adventure starts the player has to make a big decision. It is wether to help a industry city ("Edgewater") or to help a dissident community that tries to arrange with nature. In the industrial city everybody is in fact a slave but basically gets what is necessary for a minimal living. In the dissident community everybody is free but they will not get help from the planet´s outside (medicine, etc) but have to help themselves with everything, they´re completely on their own.
The player *has* to make a choice: help the industrials or the dissidents, otherwise the story will not progress. The city you choose to help will live, the other one is doomed.
Essentially the choice is: will you choose freedom or safety?
Does this trade-off sound familiar from somewhere?
Some more strange aspects:
- Many people in the industrial city suffer from a "plague" and the city does not get enough medicine delivered from its mother corporation to be able to treat everyone. Strange timing to come up with such a gamestory at the end of 2019, is it?
- Also all the items in the game are branded somehow because everything is manufactured by some company, e. g. the healing potions are named "Adreno"... odd, hmm?
- The star system is governed by a hierarchical system of corporations.
Overall, I'd say the game is at least pretty anti-corporation.
