Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment announced that The Outer Worlds will be coming to the Nintendo Switch after launching on other platforms.
In the video below, Matthew Singh, Senior Producer at Obsidian Entertainment, talks about preparing The Outer Worlds for release on the Switch in partnership with Virtuos:
For those not in the know, The Outer Worlds is a new single-player, first-person sci-fi RPG from the original creators of Fallout that was announced during The Game Awards 2018. The player awakes decades after being lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy.
They immediately fall into a deep conspiracy that threatens to destroy the Halcyon colony. As a result, they must explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power. The character that the player chooses to create will determine how the story unfolds.
The Outer Worlds will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via the Microsoft Windows Store and Epic Games store) on October 25, 2019. Following the release on these platforms, The Outer Worlds will also come to Nintendo Switch; no release date has been announced at this time.
