The Outer Worlds didn’t get off to the best start on Nintendo Switch, with poor visuals and performance. Things are starting to turn around though, with an upcoming patch set to bring a number of improvements.
Announced via The Outer Worlds Twitter account, a new patch is coming to the Nintendo Switch version on the 21st of October and following that, the game will be going on sale on the 22nd of October too.
The Board is excited to announce that employees on the Nintendo Switch platform can expect to see a patch reach their device on Oct 21st!
We are also recruiting new employees to join us on the Halcyon Colony, so get ready to take advantage of a sale on the Switch on Oct 22nd! pic.twitter.com/1efUFBNWsv

As you can see in the tweet above, there are some graphical improvements. Terrain and lighting in particular seem to be looking a bit better than the initial release.
We’ll have to wait until next week to get a full idea of the visual improvement, but things seem promising based on these initial screenshots.
KitGuru Says: Did any of you pick up The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch earlier this year? Will you be revisiting it after this graphics-improving patch?
