Following on from The Outer Worlds' big release on the Switch earlier this month, the game's publisher Private Division has revealed a patch is currently in the works, and that the team at Virtuos is investigating how to "further improve" the performance. Here's the full announcement from Private Division's official Twitter account:
Employees of Halcyon! A patch for The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch is in the works, and the team at Virtuos is investigating to further improve the game’s performance.
We will let the community know once we can confirm this update is available.
In our own review of this "Fallout-in-space"-style RPG adventure, we mentioned how Virtuos tried its best to "keep things as smooth as possible" in the Switch port, but couldn't help but notice how the visuals looked a little rough - especially in docked mode, and the long load times. Will you be returning to The Outer Worlds when this patch is released? Tell us down below.
