Obsidian Apologizes for Remastered The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition has been heavily criticized by gamers, mainly due to the game's poor optimization. Obsidian Entertainment has apologized for the condition of the remaster and announced an update.

2019 RPG The Outer Worlds has recently received a refreshed version. The remaster was met with a negative reception from fans already before its release, by the fact that owners of the original (and both story DLCs) have to pay an extra $9 for it. On the other hand, after the debut, it turned out that The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition has bigger problems - abysmal optimization. The upgrade was promptly review bombed on Steam.

Recently a representative of Obsidian Entertainment referred to this situation on Reddit and apologized for the difficulties that owners of the refreshed version of the game have to contend with.

"I am sorry that you all have been experiencing performance issues with The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. I understand how frustrating this can be, and I assure you the team at Private Division is working on getting a patch out as soon as possible. When we have more information about that patch we'll be sure to let folks know."

For now, we don't know any details related to the said patch, but there is no doubt that the remaster needs it. Many PC gamers report, that even on powerful hardware (e.g., with an RTX 4090) and with reduced graphics settings The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition has trouble maintaining a stable 30 frames per second. Performance issues also plague the console versions.

In addition, the representative of Obsidian Entertainment reminds that if you encounter other problems in the remaster, you can contact support via this link.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition offers, among other things, better graphics compared to the original and minor gameplay changes.. The game debuted on March 7 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles and PCs.
