Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division have great news for Nintendo Switch players: The Outer Worlds will be launching on the portable console on March 6th! The game is generally considered one of the best games of 2019 and sits at a comfortable 82% for PC on Metacritic (86% on PS4, 85% on XB1). The Switch launch is great for players with a particular bent towards open-world RPGs that can be toted along for on-the-spot gaming.
Our own Garrick Raley awarded the game on PC a sweet 9.0/10. Here’s what he had to say: “I think anybody that enjoyed playing the Fallout games, as well as anyone that has enjoyed the Mass Effect titles, would unequivocally enjoy their time playing The Outer Worlds. I had so much fun exploring every nook and cranny, scouring out-of-the-way locations for loot, taking everything that wasn’t nailed down, and immersing myself in the otherworldy locations around Halcyon.”
