The Outer Worlds Gets New Switch Release Date With Physical Cartridge Confirmed to Have Day One Patch

Private Division announced that the Obsidian and Virtuos Games-developed adventure RPG, The Outer Worlds, will launch on Nintendo Switch on June 5.

The game was previously said to release at retail with only a download code inserted into the box. Following a delay from the original release date, the team has announced that the physical version will launch on a cartridge. This version of the game will also require a day one patch that is about 6gb. The patch enhances the Switch experience by adding hi-res textures, various gameplay optimization, and more.

No screenshots were shared of actual Switch gameplay.

In The Outer Worlds, the player will take on the role of a mysterious character who happens to be lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy. The character awakens decades later, and it’s from then on that the player will have to explore a space colony that isn’t all that safe to be in as multiple factions fight for control of it. The player can decide to choose the path they want to take if they wish to be a hero, rebel, or even an anti-hero.

The Outer Worlds is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
