Patch 1.2 is currently live and provides a number of visual improvements.
As promised, Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds has a new patch live for Nintendo Switch. It improves the visuals by a fairly decent amount, implementing a half-resolution SSAO, clouds in the skybox and so on. There are also a number of changes and fixes that help improve CPU performance and optimization.
For instance, the max instance count for sounds has been limited while their volume threshold has been adjusted. Textures have also been packed to save memory while world buildings have received added details. Some buildings have been re-designed entirely and more vegetation can be seen in the world as well.
A more detailed side-by-side comparison is required but judging by official images circulating a few days ago, there should be a fairly big jump in visual fidelity. The Outer Worlds is also available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC but will also be coming to Steam today. Stay tuned for more details on the Steam version when it goes live.
