Rather than a digital download code, The Outer Worlds will be available as a physical game cartridge for Nintendo Switch. The physical version will arrive alongside a day-one patch, which is estimated to be around 6 GB of storage. The patch, according to Obsidian, will optimize gameplay and high-resolution textures on Switch.
The Outer Worlds initially released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC back in October 2019. Virtuos, the Singaporean game developer creating The Outer Worlds Switch port, had to postpone the port’s release due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Outer Worlds launches on Nintendo Switch on June 5. The game costs $59.99 both physically and digitally. Although the game has an official page on the Nintendo eShop, pre-orders are not yet available. Head over to the official The Outer Worlds website for more information.
