For those that are interested in the game mechanics I found a game play video from the YouTube channel Game Informer and their regular show, "New Gameplay Today" that shows a little under 15 minutes in-game.
Since the game hasn't been released yet, you'll need to consider that some things may change prior to the release. Outwardly though, it's pretty apparent that this is using the same base Graphics Engine used in the more recent Fallout releases and Skyrim. As such, I'm guessing that it will have the same or similar basic key bindings and controls. New Gameplay Today – The Outer Worlds
Also, just to clarify the brief comment made by one of the commentators, this is NOT an Xbox exclusive release and will be available for PC, Xbox and PS4. That comment was in reference to the recent news I posted here a bit ago that Obsidian had been purchased by Microsoft. This invariably means that they will eventually be releasing some Xbox exclusives, but this is not one of those.
