The Outer Worlds Is Coming to the Nintendo Switch

-

Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment today announced that The Outer Worlds will be released on Nintendo Switch, following the launch on other platforms.

In the announcement trailer below, you can watch Matthew Singh, Senior Producer at Obsidian Entertainment, talk about bringing The Outer Worlds to Nintendo Switch in partnership with Virtuos.

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.

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.

“When I found myself contractually obligated to work with Leonard, we decided to make the game we always wanted,” said Tim Cain, Co-Game Director at Obsidian, previously. “A game where player agency matters, and allows you to approach any situation however you’d like. Because it’s your story. And, because we haven’t figured out how to contractually oblige you to play how we want you to. Yet.”

The Outer Worlds presents you with a variety of options to play through the game. With an array of ranged and melee sci-fi weaponry at your disposal, you can also solve issues with good, old-fashioned spoken diplomacy, or even leadership-driven delegation to your companions.

“All kidding aside,” said Leonard Boyarsky, Co-Game Director at Obsidian, “Tim is truly honored to be working with me again on a game that focuses not only on a player-driven story, but also on establishing a new universe that is fun for players to explore with depth, humor, and corporate approved action.”

“Obsidian has such a great history when it comes to creating exceptional single-player RPGs,” said Allen Murray, Vice President of Production. “The Outer Worlds is unmistakably an Obsidian game, delivering an experience rich with dark humor, interesting characters, and plenty of player agency.”
