Obsidian's The Outer Worlds made our Top 10 Best Games of 2019 list for good reason, it was an excellent RPG from a studio known for creating excellent RPGs. The Nintendo Switch version was always listed as arriving after its initial launch, and now we have the date that Switch owners will be able to journey to the Halcyon system - June 5.

And even though the release is still a couple of months out we've got word that a day one patch (of up to 6Gb) will be required for the physical release that will "optimise gameplay, provide additional hi-res textures, and include other fixes".

As per our best-of entry we're curious to see how it performs on the Switch after its polished debut.
Obsidian has slowly but surely become a reliable source of great narrative driven role-playing games, with recent efforts from the studio presenting tales in the sort of isometric perspective made popular by computer games of the late 1990s. Mostly with fantasy settings that would have every D&D fan in a 5k radius reaching for their multi-sided die. The Outer Worlds differs in that it feels more like the studio’s output from the subsequent decade, namely with the one-two punch that was Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic II and Fallout: New Vegas. And to a lesser extent Alpha Protocol. With veteran developers from the original Fallout-era at Interplay on board, The Outer Worlds presents a very Fallout-style experience in space. And really, that was enough for this sci-fi RPG to become one of our most anticipated releases for the year.

Outside of its genuinely funny satirical story and memorable cast of characters one of the more surprising aspects of The Outer Worlds was the fact that it’s a Fallout-style game without a litany of bugs, glitches, or engine quirks. Developed using Unreal Engine 4, it’s also a looker - presenting a vibrant series of galactic objects to explore, stunning skylines to take in, and strange alien creatures to deal with.

The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch is out June 5 and will retail for $89.99 AUD and be available both digitally and physically.
