Available via the Nintendo digital store, the pre-purchase will cost players USD$59.99, and will require 9.9GB worth of space. The game is set on the furthest edge of the galaxy, as players wake up decades after getting lost in transit during a colonisation trip and find themselves caught in the middle of deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony.
The Outer Worlds operates heavily on player-based mechanics, so the character that each player chooses will inevitably affect how the game plays out, from its endgame plot, to the way NPCs behave.
The Nintendo Switch port of The Outer Worlds was initially set to arrive on March 6, but was delayed due to the challenges faced from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Outer Worlds was first released on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in October 2019.
Other notable games that have experienced delays due to the current pandemic include Sony Interactive Entertainment’s The Last Of Us Part II, Ghost Of Tsushima, and Iron Man VR. All three games have since received new release dates.
In other Obsidian Entertainment news, the studio will be releasing a time-limited demo of its upcoming survival game, Grounded. The demo will be available from June 9 till June 14 to coincide with the Steam Game Festival. Xbox Insiders will be able to test out the game on Xbox One, while PC players will have access via Steam.
