The Outer Worlds Release Times and Day One Patch Size Revealed

The Outer Worlds is ready to launch in just over a week. With that mind, Obsidian has revealed the release times on each platform, as well as some details on a rather hefty day-one patch.

For people buying a digital copy of The Outer Worlds, the day-one update will be included within the game download. However, if you’re planning on a physical purchase, then you’re looking at a hefty 38 Gigabytes on Xbox One or a smaller 18 Gigabytes on PlayStation 4. There aren’t too many details on the content of the patch itself, with the forum post simply stating it will “include tweaks and optimization fixes.”

The Outer Worlds is an Epic Games Store timed-exclusive, meaning it won’t be coming to Steam until a year after its initial release. Players can also buy the title on PC via Xbox Game Pass and the Microsoft Windows Store. If you love to take your RPGs on the go, The Outer Worlds is coming to Nintendo Switch too, but we still don’t have a confirmed date yet. For more details on how the port is being handled, check out our piece on it here.

Obsidian is considered a master of its craft, and it’s no surprise when you take into account the classics under its belt. It’s responsible for Fallout: New Vegas, a game thought by many to be even better the mainline games developed by Bethesda. More recently, it put out Pillars of Eternity and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. This is where Obsidian did its own thing whilst simultaneously paying homage to classic games, like Baldur’s Gate, that it’s inspired by.

The Outer Worlds hopes to combine the gallows humor of the Fallout series with an aesthetic design most attributed to Borderlands. Obsidian has revealed plenty of gameplay for The Outer Worlds, and it gives us a clear picture of what to expect in the Sci-Fi action-RPG – plenty of violence, over-the-top weaponry, and colorful environments.

The Outer Wilds crash lands on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 25th. Are you gonna pick this one up? Let us know down in the comments.
