    Obsidian Entertainment's latest RPG, a sci-fi adventure called The Outer Worlds, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Originally announced for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, this game will be brought to the Switch, courtesy of Virtuos, who was previously credited with porting L.A. Noire to the Switch, as well as being the team behind the Final Fantasy X and X-2 remaster. While The Outer Worlds launches on the Epic Games Store, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 later this year on October 25th, the Nintendo Switch version will release sometime after.

    Always happy to see new releases on all of the major platforms. Time will tell what kind of performance/graphics changes the game will receive.

    Looking forward to this one. Seems like they've copied the Fallout 3 VATS combat system which I really liked.

    Just saw this on my Youtube feed after the Sakurai DLC showoff. So pumped for this, although I hope it's not delayed too long after the release of it's console counterparts.

    Now you can enjoy the game on ultra low settings, 360P, and at a blistering 17fps!

    I like how the Switch has been getting more FPS love as of recent. Keep ‘em coming because these shoddy ports of the Doom games won’t hold me over long!

    Sounds good to me.
    I might also play it on the PS4 PRO the few times I'm home.

    That's actually amazing, even if it runs like trash.

    hang on a second, obsidian invented vats back when they made the original fallout games (they were known as Black Isle Studios). Bethesda fallout games are way behind Obsidian, even new vegas is several times better than fallout 3.

    We keep saying "17 fps" and all that, but in reality the good Switch ports actually do stay at 30 fps for most parts, it's just the drops that could go to 17 and such. I'm happy the Switch is getting big titles like these.

    People are getting hyperbolic about it because they watch digital foundry or similar type videos that highlight the absolute worst performance. Ive seen people make a huge deal out of games dropping a 3 fps from the target every now and then because they just dont have the proper context.

    I quickly searched that up on YouTube, and you can see that probably the most demanding game on the Switch right now runs most of the time at 30fps. Sure, there are exceptions sometimes, but saying these new ports would run like garbage is an exaggeration.

    It all depends on how well the port is made in the end, and we haven't even seen Switch gameplay of this new game, we shouldn't be too quick to judge.

    Meh, PC cersion for me. Cool that they're trying to give the Switch users access though.

    Here's hoping it isn't a blurry and stuttery mess of a downgrade.

    The E3 trailer made this game look like a wannabe Borderlands or Fortnite. Overly color-saturated FPS games trying to be so hip and goofy. Only reason why this game ever got attention is because of the Fallout community's massive circlejerking over Fallout:New Vegas.
