The Outer Worlds has started to pre-load for users who have Xbox Game Pass. The game also has a massive day one update for Xbox One and PS4.
The Outer Worlds review embargo has lifted today and the critics have praised the game giving it an average score of 86 on both Metacritic and Opencritic. The stellar reception is good news for Microsoft who have bought Obsidian Entertainment recently and should serve as a good stepping stone for them as they develop further first-party games for Microsoft Xbox consoles and PC.
The Outer Worlds will launch on Xbox Game Pass for PC and Consoles on the same day and date as other consoles. This means if you have an active subscription for The Outer Worlds, you will be able to download the game now. The pre-load is now up for both Xbox One and PC users who have Game Pass subscription.
Obsidian Entertainment had confirmed that PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support will be included in the game after earlier misinformation regarding the PS4 Pro support. The day one update size was also revealed and it is available to download now on the PS4 and Xbox One. This will patch The Outer Worlds to version 1.01 on PS4. If you were wondering about the install size, the download is under 18 GB on PS4 and should be under 38 GB on the Xbox One version.
While the update seems massive, it should be already included in the Game Pass pre-load, which is available now. The size is also the same, weighing in just under 38 GB on PC and Xbox One X. Those with an Xbox One have a smaller file size with 18 GB of data required for both updates and the full game. This is because of Xbox One and PS4 lack 4K textures which are supported on PC and Xbox One X.
