The Outer Worlds is coming to the Nintendo Switch on March 6. Ahead of the launch of the game, here’s our first look at how the game looks on Switch.
The Outer Worlds was a brand new RPG from Obsidian Entertainment which was published by Private Division. It is coming to the Nintendo Switch after launching last year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Switch version will understandably offer a lower visual overhead compared to other consoles and now we have an idea of how it will look after sacrificing visual effects.
The Outer Worlds has received some screenshots from the official Nintendo eShop page that gives us the first glimpse at the game running on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s how it looks like when running on Switch.
The game is understandably downgraded to run on the hardware of Switch which supports both docked and portable mode. The sacrifice made to run it both in portable and docked mode means it doesn’t quite come close to the other consoles. It is also significantly lower than the PC version at its lowest setting like due to a combination of low resolution and reduced effects.
The Witcher 3 is one recent multiplatform game that was ported to the Nintendo Switch. It also runs at a lower resolution but manages to be just decent enough to be playable. What matters more is the frame rate here because this determines if a game is playable or not. As it stands, we haven’t seen the game running on the Nintendo Switch hardware so it is too early to determine the quality of this port.
The Outer Worlds will be out on March 6, 2020, for the Nintendo Switch.
