The Outer Worlds is an upcoming first-person adventure game from Obsidian Entertainment. Despite the fact that the team is now a part of Xbox Game Studios, this game is available on PlayStation 4 — and will be coming to Nintendo Switch down the line.
The Outer Worlds is scheduled to launch on October 25, but that exact timings are different in various regions. For example, on the American West Coast, you can play it on October 24 at 9 PM local time. Luckily, the developer posted the following image to help gamers with the time conversions.
The Outer Worlds is Xbox One X Enhanced and features 4K resolution and 4K textures just like the PC version. The frame rate appears to be locked to 30 frames per second though, unlike the PC port. The PlayStation 4 Pro version doesn't appear to feature 4K textures and only renders at 1440p.
In Windows Central's review, Jez Corden wrote, "The Outer Worlds is a tremendous role-playing game that feels like the culmination of Obsidian Entertainment's efforts with similar franchises over the years. As a fan of classic BioWare and Bethesda games, The Outer Worlds not only scratches the itch, but exceeds the legacy of the titles it draws inspiration from in some ways."
