Obsidian Entertainment’s first-person sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds is heading to Nintendo Switch after its launch on other consoles. This will be their first first-person RPG to make its way to a Nintendo platform.
The Outer Worlds is a new 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 Outer Worlds will be released on October 25th, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC and a Nintendo Switch version will be released soon after. For more information, visit the official website. We had a chance to play The Outer Worlds at E3 2019. Check out our hands-on preview here.
