The Outer Worlds Switch Release Date Set for June 5

Obsidian Entertainment, Virtuos Games, and Private Division today revealed an update for The Outer Worlds Switch release, which had previously been set for March 6th before being delayed due to current events.

Set to launch for the Nintendo Switch on June 5, 2020 (pre-order at Amazon), the retail version of the game will be available in both a physical cartridge and digital download.

Upon release, the game will be accompanied by a day one patch that could take up to 6GB of space. This patch improves the overall experience by adding hi-res textures, various gameplay optimizations, and more.

With the Nintendo Switch, players will be able to take The Outer Worlds anywhere they go. Whether they choose to zap foes with their shrink ray or charm them with smooth-talking abilities, The Outer Worlds lets fans play the way they want and be the galactic hero (or villain) of their dreams.

Both the physical and digital versions of The Outer Worlds Switch release will retail for $59.99 MSRP.

“We wanted to share an exciting update that we plan on launching The Outer Worlds for the Nintendo Switch on June 5th, 2020,” said Obsidian in a statement today. “As we prepare for another arrival of new colonists, we have some very important information for those making this journey, specifically for you colonists who prefer your goods in physical form.

“The retail version The Outer Worlds comes on a physical cartridge, and it will be accompanied by a day one patch that could be up to 6 GB. This patch will optimize gameplay, provide additional hi-res textures, and include other fixes to provide the employees of Halcyon with the best gameplay experience. Please ensure you have planned accordingly and have available space necessary for the patch.

“The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch will retail for $59.99 digitally and physically. We appreciate your dedication to the Board. And remember: it’s not the best choice, it’s Spacer’s Choice!”

The video game is also available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can order those versions by clicking here.

The Outer Worlds is a 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 video game 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.
