Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds is getting a new patch in the next few days across all platforms and Social Media Manager Shyla has posted a few details of what to expect, which is, apparently, “a lot.”
Here is the post.
Greetings employees of Halcyon,
We have been hard at work developing fixes and implementing features you all have shared with us, and we are excited to share that we plan to release Patch 1.3 later this week for all platforms. A lot is going in with this patch, but we wanted to share with you a few of the exciting changes you can expect to see when this patch goes live:
Top Community Requests:
- Font Scaling (added a setting to adjust the size of text throughout most UI)
- Ultrawide Support (loading screens & cinematics)
- Improved Font Visibility (coloring)
- Multi Quest Map Tracking (can see inactive quests on the map and select them)
- New Reticle HUD Setting Option “Aiming Only” (ADS or Scoped)
- Fixed the Chromatic Aberration Setting not Saving
- New Invert “X-Axis” Setting
- Added Toggle for Sprinting
- Improved the quality of item drops when killing Manti-Queens
- Fixed the effects of Encumbrance not working correctly with the Confidence Perk
We want to thank you all for the continued feedback and patience while we continue to work to improve your gaming experience.
Obsidian have previously announced story DLC for the game this year, but the Switch port of the game has been delayed due to the pesky Coronavirus. This is due to the game being ported by Virtuos who are based in China.
We’re delaying @OuterWorlds on Nintendo Switch due to the coronavirus impacting the Virtuos team working on the port, to provide them enough time to finish development. We’ll now be releasing the physical version on cartridge. Once we have a new launch date, we’ll let you know!

“The Outer Worlds is the game that fans have wanted Obsidian Entertainment to make for the better part of a decade,” we said in our 8/10 review. “The story is the main attraction here, with Obsidian’s witty writing coming to the fore in an interesting and funny interstellar setting. If that’s what you look for in your RPGs, The Outer Worlds will not disappoint.”
