The Outer Worlds Switch release window has been revealed. The game, which is an action-roleplaying game developed by Obsidian Entertainment, will be making its way onto the Nintendo Switch in the first quarter of 2020. The Outer Worlds is a single-player action-roleplaying game that plays in the first-person perspective. Many compare it to Fallout, given the fact that the game is developed by the original developers of the Fallout series as well as the developers of Fallout New Vegas, which is arguably the best Fallout game in the series. The game was in development before Microsoft acquired Obsidian, so the game was allowed to move forward on all platforms.

The Outer Worlds is very much a Fallout killer. It has quenched the thirst of many who have been disappointed by the latest outings in the Fallout franchise, especially the disaster which is Fallout 76. Since Fallout 3, the series has been on a steady decline and The Outer Worlds is a breath of fresh air. It’s not Fallout, but brings so many of the elements that made the series great. Obsidian is one of the best RPG developers in the business and their work on Fallout New Vegas was superb. Some are even comparing it to New Vegas, referring to it as a “spiritual sequel.”

If this proves two things, Obsidian is one of the best developers in the business and the Nintendo Switch continues to receive third-party ports, which is wonderful for both devs and gamers alike.
