The Outer Worlds is coming to Nintendo Switch both physically and digitally later this spring, June 6.
The announcement comes by way of an official blog post earlier today by developer Obsidian Entertainment, which not only confirmed the date but also detailed the physical package. The Outer Worlds’ physical edition comes on a cartridge, and it’s “accompanied by a day one patch that could be up to 6 GB.”
It’s explained that the patch “will optimize gameplay, provide additional hi-res textures, and include other fixes to provide the employees of Halcyon with the best gameplay experience.”
Both digital and physical editions of the game cost $59.99.
The Outer Worlds is an action-RPG played from a first-person perspective. It’s heavily inspired by the Fallout series, a franchise that Obsidian Games has previously been involved with as the team behind Fallout: New Vegas.
The Outer Worlds launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC last year to critical acclaim. Twinfinite reviewed it and was similarly impressed, scoring it 4/5 and concluding that “its story and narrative were consistently engrossing.”
The game has gone on to record notable commercial success; publisher Take-Two Interactive confirmed sales of The Outer Worlds were 2 million as part of its financial report last month.
