An incoming patch for The Outer Worlds on Switch will bring some much appreciated visual upgrades

Hopefully next comes that Peril on Gorgon DLC

The Outer Worlds on Switch prompted a lot of conversation about if some sacrifices are worth making when porting a game to weaker hardware. For those who played it on PC, PS4, or Xbox One, it was a noticeable downgrade for sure. For me, having never played it on stronger systems, I found it to be decent enough

It looked rough and disappointingly barren, but that might change later this month when the long-awaited patch will release on Switch. Full patch notes are being withheld for now, but the game’s Twitter page decided to give us a sneak peek at how the visuals will improve with the download.

Oh heck yes. Here’s to hoping this doesn’t take up too much space on my microSD card.

The Outer Worlds is now available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. It will launch on Steam on October 23.
