GOOD news, intrepid space adventurers and would-be colonists!
Developers Obsidian and publisher Private Division have announced their eagerly-awaited sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds will be launching on Nintendo Switch at some point after it takes off on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 25.
While no release date has been announced for the Switch version, Obsidian have said it will be developed in partnership with Virtuous, as you can see in this announcement video which features Obsidian senior producer Matthew Singh talking about bringing The Outer Worlds to Nintendo Switch.
The official announcement also offered a helpful refresher in case you’d missed the excitement building around the title:
“The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.”
Having seen a guided gameplay demo of The Outer Worlds at E3 this year, I can confirm the game looked really, really good and is one of my must-play titles this year. Regardless of which platforms it ends up on, there’s rightly a lot of interest in this game.
