Obsidian Entertainment’s latest Sci-Fi RPG, The Outer Worlds, has been the talk of the town since its release last month. The space-faring, open-ended adventure brings together several of the minds behind the original Fallout games, and it’s clearly resonated with players.
In Take-Two Interactive’s latest earnings call, Karl Slatoff —company president— confirmed a release period for the game’s Nintendo Switch port: early 2020. Alongside Skyrim and The Witcher 3 ports, The Outer Worlds is set to make Nintendo’s hybrid a tempting platform for fans of modern RPGs.
In addition to this, Slatoff was pleased to announce that The Outer Worlds has been: “exceeding (our) expectations and reviews have been outstanding”. With that in mind, it seems the future is looking bright for more ambitious RPG endeavours in the coming years.
It should be pointed out that the Switch version of The Outer Worlds is likely to suffer a reduced resolution and slightly inferior performance in comparison to the other versions of the game. For reference, the recent Witcher 3 port has been criticised by some for its "muddy" textures and uneven performance.
The Outer Worlds is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It will release on Nintendo Switch early 2020.
