Bethesda’s newest open-world space RPG will be part of the Autumn Sale. If you are a fan of Bethesda’s games, you’ll definitely want to pick this one up. While it didn’t live up to the hype for some overly hopeful gamers looking for a space epic, it has all of the usual Bethesda charm that will keep you fully immersed from walking around seemingly endless eerie planets, building up your spaceship, and completing quests for peculiar NPCs. 

The game is also visually stunning, with tons of planets that all have their own distinct appearance. It really makes up for the glitches and stiff NPCs so give it a try if you are looking to explore space however you want.
