Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming open-world RPG, The Outer Worlds, will be ported over to the Nintendo Switch.
The news was announced today by way of an announcement trailer for the port which was published to the Nintendo YouTube account. Check it out below.
The Outer Worlds is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, who are best known for a number of classic RPG titles such as Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout: New Vegas, and Pillars of Eternity. The game is scheduled to be released for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on Friday 25th October, but it sounds like Switch players will have to wait a while longer. The announcement trailer above slates the Switch release as coming “following the launch of the other platforms” but gives no indication of an actual date, so we’ll have to wait and see exactly how long Nintendo players will be kept waiting.
It’ll be interesting to see how well the port runs on the Nintendo Switch’s limited hardware compared to its competitors. It’s safe to say that the port is in good hands – Virtuous will be in charge of bringing the title over to Nintendo’s console, having previously done the same for both Dark Souls Remastered and L.A. Noire.
