The Outer Worlds Update Landing Next Week

A new update is set to land in The Outer Worlds next week. Here are the patch notes so you know what to expect.

Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds released two weeks ago, and it’s been a relatively bug-free experience for most players. Such a smooth launch has led copious praise from dozens of reviewers, including our own. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been some hiccups, however, and the game’s new patch sets out to squash of few of the more pesky critters.

In a recent blog post on the game’s official website, Obsidian and developer The Private Division lay out the changes and bug fixes players can expect to see when the update goes live sometime next week. The post did not provide a specific release window for the patch. 

Here’s a short list of the planned changes per the official posting. 

The Outer Worlds Update Patch Notes

According to Obsidian:

At this time, we would like to let you all know that we are looking at releasing a patch next week to implement some changes and bug fixes. This patch is currently in the testing phase and as long as no other issues occur during this time, we hope to release it to you all sometime next week.

Please be aware that this can change, but we are working hard to make this timeline and things are looking good thus far.

Update Resolved Issues
  • The crashing issue in Tartarus
  • Increase Font Size – Conversations/Subtitles
  • Muffled sound effects occur at random times for players on the PS4
  • Companions dying and failing companion quests on modes other than Supernova
  • Unable to finish “Radio Free Monarch”  
  • Trophy “Not the Best Choice” fails to unlock properly

Finally, The Outer Worlds will have bigger fonts! Though it’s a small change, it’s one that players and reviewers have clamored for since the game’s release in October. Now, we can finally put away our reading glasses … 

In other news surrounding The Outer Worlds, it seems the sci-fi RPG has performed better than its publishers anticipated. In a recent earnings call, Tak-Two Interactive said that The Outer Worlds has been a “critical and commercial success… exceeding our expectations, and reviews have been outstanding.”

That’s certainly good news for any new IP.
