When The Outer Worlds released last year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it won acclaim from critics and consumers alike for its choice-driven gameplay and clever writing. However, when the RPG came to Switch, players on Nintendo’s console didn’t get to see the game at its best; the performance can be pretty rough.
To address concerns with the Switch version, publisher Private Division has announced that Virtuos (the team behind the Switch version) is working on ways to improve the experience, and that a patch is in the works.

Though we don’t know exactly when the fixes will be available, it’s good to know that Switch owners will soon get a clearer picture of what makes The Outer Worlds so good.
