Obsidian's RPG, The Outer Worlds, enjoyed a measure of success on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so far, with Switch being left out initially. The wait has come to an end as Nintendo's console will get the game in early June 2020.

Private Division and Obsidian announced that The Outer Worlds will come out on Nintendo Switch on June 5, 2020. That is roughly eight months after the game was released on PC and the other consoles but Nintendo fans' wait will likely be worth it.

The game was liked by both critics and players as the former group gave the ratings of 82, 85 and 85 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively. User ratings were slightly lower with 74, 80 and 81. The disparity on PC between the critics and users probably has something to do with the players' frustrations over Epic Games exclusivity but keep in mind that this does not reflect the product's actual quality.

If you are for some reason unfamiliar with the title, The Outer Worlds is best described as "space Fallout" since it shares many gameplay elements and even the dialogue system which resembles that of Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

Instead of a post-nuclear wasteland, radiation and mutated creatures, players will be facing alien planets, uncontrolled capitalism and alien creatures. However, the main features of The Outer Worlds are probably the RPG elements as players can seamlessly assume or change their role in various locations.

The price tag has not been announced yet but it's possible it will be that of a AAA title, just like on the other platforms. You can check out the official website for purchase when it becomes available
