The Outer Worlds launched last October with some tiny, baby-sized font. Only hawks could make out the text without squinting. A month later, developer Obsidian released an update that included a toggle for increasing the font size. It still wasn’t big enough for some people, especially the text for item descriptions.
Finally, we’re gonna get some huge, geriatric-certified font. Obsidian is introducing a font-size slider to Outer Worlds sometime this week. Here it is in all its glory:
I can finally say that I’ve spent the last 3 months getting FONT SCALING into @OuterWorlds! You can get your hands on it very soon! I’m about to drop some GIFs of my work in game! pic.twitter.com/oVweRmg6Bt

Slide that bad boy all the way up and stop leaning toward your TV and straining your eyes. You’ll make more benevolent dialogue choices when you aren’t grumpy about the text size. Ergo, the world of The Outer Worlds will be a better place just because now there’s some big-ass font…probably, that is.
