The space adventure gets a special collection

Recommended Videos

Obsidian’s outer-space RPG The Outer Worlds is getting a special edition for newer consoles and PC. The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition arrives on March 7, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Given that this version is heading to newer consoles, it’ll have a few more bells and whistles compared to the original Outer Worlds. Higher resolution graphics and improved performance, enhanced details, dynamic weather, overhauled lighting, and more all await.

And for those who missed the extra story post-launch, Spacer’s Choice links all that in too. The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition will have both DLC packs, Murder on Eridanos and Peril on Gorgon, included in the package. The new version will retail for $59.99 by itself, though if you own the game on a previous system (PS4, Xbox One) or on the same PC storefront, you can upgrade to this version for $9.99.

For those looking to keep their adventure going, though, you’ll have to stay on the original platform. A Private Division spokesperson confirmed to us that saves will not transfer over to The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition.

It’s Spacer’s Choice

It’s a bit of a surprise to see The Outer Worlds get a bumped-up option for the newer consoles, but likely a welcome one for those who missed this game the first time around. Obsidian’s space adventure was certainly a little messy at times, but had some worlds and characters that made a decent impact.

With a new sequel in the works, this does seem like a decent excuse to either refresh yourself or get up-to-speed with The Outer Worlds. Or heck, even if you just need a space-centered RPG to tide you over for whenever Starfield arrives.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition arrives for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S on March 7.
