“Whether you’re new to The Outer Worlds or you’ve already explored every corner of the Halcyon colony, Spacer’s Choice Edition is the complete way to experience this beloved RPG. And I’m not saying that just because the board also controls my paycheck,” said Leonard Boyarsky, co-game director at Obsidian Entertainment. “The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition has improved graphics and performance, an increased level cap, and 100% less packaging!,” noted Tim Cain, co-game director at Obsidian Entertainment.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition brings several improvements that will provide an improved immersive experience to an already captivating roleplaying game. Updated for a whole new generation, the game features environment changes, including increased material quality in many areas, improvements to the AI such as more appropriate NPC pathing and some new animations for marauders, and enhanced VFX to help players experience the game even better than before. In addition, players will also appreciate the updated lip sync, improved facial animations, and increased hair and skin shader fidelity, which will help to bring their favorite characters increasingly to life. Finally, not only is the game better looking, but it is the best-running version of the game yet, with improved performance and better load times.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition is a celebration of 2019’s award-winning game, remastered with a host of enhancements to make this definitive edition. Obsidian’s signature player-driven narrative is front and center as the choices affect not only how your story develops, but also character builds, companion tales, and end game scenarios.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition is now available as digital download for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC for $59.99 MSRP and available through March 21, 2023 for a special introductory price of $47.99 MSRP**.
