The Outer Worlds Banned Certain Words In Character Creator Even Though It’s A Single-Player Game
The Outer Worlds Censorship

Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds is receiving a lot of praise from the usual suspects, but one thing that has slipped under the radar is that there’s censorship afoot. In fact, the game censors you from using certain words in the character creator. Yes, there’s a ban list that prevents you from naming your character using words that the developers have deemed unacceptable… in a single-player game that’s rated ‘M’ for Mature by the ESRB for containing “Strong Language”.

It was brought up in a Reddit thread, but didn’t receive much attention since it was perceived as negative news by the diehard fans and shills.

Reddit user ThaumicSlime posted a screenshot of the character creator preventing him from using “Mongoloid” as a name for his character.

Certain words are banned from character creation from r/theouterworlds

As gamers began to discover that certain words were prohibited from being used as names, they began compiling a list.

Twitter user Ranger_Aqua came across a Pastebin that was put together by the fine folks at RPG_Codex and shared it online, which contains all the words that they won’t allow you to use as a character name in The Outer Worlds, even though the game is a single-player title.

This is very similar to the banned word list in Mortal Kombat 11, where they prevent you from using certain words for your customized variation sets.

In this case, using the above words as a name for your character in the creation suite is prohibited. Others have been posting up images of them attempting to use certain words and the creator blocking them from doing so.

So this isn’t an isolated case or just a one-off instance.

There are various people on Twitter criticizing Obsidian for the blacklist of names that they won’t allow you to use for your custom character in The Outer Worlds.

But wait… it gets worse!

Some users pointed out that not only are you prevented from using certain names for your character in The Outer Worlds, but you’re also prevented from rebinding certain keys on the keyboard for the PC version of the game.

Why? We don’t know.

What we do know is that certain keys are permanently affixed to certain actions and they cannot be changed.

YouTuber Gopher bewailed at the inconvenience and Obsidian’s decision to restrict PC gamers from rebinding certain keys.

It’s not looking as if The Outer Worlds is off to a good start, especially when there are already reports about censorship and control limitations circulating the social media sphere.

If you want a more in-depth look at the game and its features, its content, as well as what some of the Social Justice elements are like, Kevin provided a very detailed article giving his impressions on The Outer Worlds.

The game is currently available right now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
