More good news for the “is it coming to Nintendo Switch” crowd. Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division have announced that upcoming RPG The Outer Worlds will be released on Nintendo Switch. The bad news they didn’t reveal a date, other than after the initial release date on other platforms, which is October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Instead of another cinematic trailer, Obsidian Entertainment released an announcement video starring Senior Producer Matthew Singh. Singh provides a four minute overview of the game, which you can see above.
The Outer Worlds is a first-person, story-driven RPG that looks like a mix between Fallout and Borderlands. You awaken from a colony ship orbiting the frontier planet Halcyon in a solar system gripped by giant corporations. You’ll explore the planet and work with different factions vying for control. Your choices affect the story, as well as your companions, your playstyle, and the ending.
Obsidian Entertainment is made up of many of the creators of the original Fallout RPGs, and were also responsible for the well-received first-person RPG Fallout: New Vegas.
The Outer Worlds is launching on PC (Epic Games Store, Windows Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 25. It’s also coming to Switch, though no release date has been announced. It has not been rated by the ESRB.
