Top 20 Best The Outer Worlds Mods

The Outer Worlds, one of Bethesda’s recent releases, for me, is a solid 7.5/10 at best. It’s really genre-defining like their previous releases, but it’s an okayish RPG that’s set in, well, the outer worlds. It’s just like sci-fi Skyrim, to be honest. Anyway, here are the best compilation of The Outer Worlds mods you’ll definitely need to install for a better overall gaming experience.
