Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch Port Announced After Other Platforms

A little while ago, Outer Worlds upset some people after it turned out it would be an Epic Games Store exclusive on launch. Well, it’s time for some good news. According to a new video, which you can check out below, the game is going to get a port for the Nintendo Switch. The devs will be partnering with Virtous, a Singaporean development studio, to bring this about. There’s no release date for it yet; all we know is that it’s coming after Outer Worlds comes out on other platforms.

In the video, Obsidian’s senior producer Matthew Singh revealed a little more about the game. For example, he tells us that we’ll be playing as a passenger on a colony ship that has been lost for seventy years. You are then unfrozen, and your mission is to find out what happened, and how to revive the rest of the ship’s frozen inhabitants. Also, we learned about how the game will react to the player’s action. For example, getting hit in the head will let you choose the Concussion Flaw, which will affect how you interact with people, but also get you a perk to develop your character.

Outer Worlds is launching on October 25th, 2019, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. And, as we now know, at some point in the future, it’ll also be available on the Switch. So, if you like to play on the go, you’ll be able to. That’s pretty much all the major bases covered, I’d say.
