Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds, published by Private Division, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Yes, that’s right – the first person RPG that’s the closest to a spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas as we’ll get is coming to Nintendo’s handheld. Check out the announcement trailer below (though it doesn’t represent how the Switch version will look).
The Outer Worlds takes place in the distant future, where megacorporations rule on different planets. As a stranger from a colony ship, the player investigates these planets. Depending on the choices made, the story will change, and the player character will become established as either a do-gooder, bad guy, or outright psychopath.
Releasing on October 25th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC (with the Switch version coming later), The Outer Worlds attracted controversy for the PC version’s timed exclusivity to the Epic Games Store. Nevertheless, the gameplay is looking pretty good – check out a full mission here, or some shenanigans in Byzantium City here. The Outer Worlds will also be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch.
