The Outer Worlds was an incredible game, arguably one of the best RPGs Obsidian has ever made. As I noted in our review, there’s so many great things about this game. The characters feel realistic and alive, and supported by the grim but enjoyable story the whole experience is just my brand of dark comedy. The fast and unforgiving combat is excellent, offering just enough tactical challenge and overall difficulty that both first-timers and Obsidian RPG fans should feel right at home with a bit of adjustment time.
And now, it looks like a whole new group of gamers will get to take a crack at it. Obsidian Entertainment, Virtuos Games, and Private Division are partnering up to port the full game to the Nintendo Switch on March 6th. The game will likely employ many of the tricks we saw in similar titles on the platform like The Witcher 3. There’s probably going to a be a 30 FPS lock in both modes, with dynamic resolution and other trickery being employed to keep the game at that pace. Check out the trailer for the Switch port down below.
The Outer Worlds for Switch is priced at $59.99/€59.99/£49.99, and yes there’s a couple of different options depending on what you want to pay for. The physical edition uses a download code, with the rest of the game enabled on the SD card included. There is also a digital version of The Outer Worlds on Switch that will be sold as well.
The Outer Worlds is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and is coming to Nintendo Switch on March 6. And yes, it seems that there is story DLC coming this year as well.
