If you missed its earlier releases, then The Outer Worlds: Walk’s Choice Edition on PS5 looks like the perfect way to experience Fallout’s spiritual successor. The enhanced version of the open-world RPG will debut on March 7 and will also come to Xbox Series X and PC.
However, this isn’t just the case with an older game coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X with updated resolutions and textures. The Outer Worlds: Walk’s Choice Edition enjoys all the benefits of current-gen console hardware. All versions can expect the game to run at 4K resolution at 60fps with all-new particle effects and volumetric lighting enhancements.
Of course, as a reissue, you also get all the DLC and expansion content that followed The outer worlds‘ original October 2019 release. This means you also get Peril on Gorgon and Murder on Eridanos, along with AI upgrades for your companions and various extra nastiness that can be encountered on Terra-2 and Monarch on both Xbox Series X and and PS5.
In full detail PlayStation blog postthere has been a lot of speculation as to exactly how DualSense could be used to bring Obsidian’s bombastic space opera satire to 2023. One of the most exciting edits to the game has to be how adaptive triggers work with different ranged weapons in The Outer Worlds: Walk’s Choice Edition. This means you’ll be able to really feel the recoil of an assault rifle, as well as feel the sniper’s muzzle firing, aided by subtle haptic feedback vibrations.
If you already have an existing version outer worlds, then the Spacer’s Choice Edition upgrade can be purchased for $9.99 / £7.99.
As someone who played and enjoyed the original experience almost four years ago, I am personally very excited about the improvements made to fully polish the game world. The original version suffered from noticeably dull enemy AI, which was especially noticeable in some of the wider open environments. More than a few times, companions such as Felix and Parvati also got stuck on geometry.
Behind it is the same star team of developers Fallout: New Vegas, so if you like big open world games with compelling stories and thrilling combat, this game won’t let you down. You’re looking at 15 to 30 hours of content with very little filler; Just be careful not to point yourself and your crew straight into the sun.
