Obsidian Issues Apology for Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition Performance

The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition should have been a victory lap for Obsidian Entertainment. Developed as a next-gen update/refresh for the hit 2019 action RPG, something went wrong with the final version.

Across all platforms, PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, gamers have experienced choppy performance, visual glitches, and general bugs not present in the original game. Due to Obsidian’s negative feedback went to Reddit to apologize for the rough state of the game.

Obsidian Chris’ Reddit post reads, “I’m sorry to hear you’re having any performance issues The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition. I understand how frustrating this can be and I assure you that the Private Division team is working to get a patch out as soon as possible. When we have more information on this patch, we’ll be sure to let people know.”

On the game official steam page, Spacer’s choice is described as “The Outer Worlds Love you, but even better: The hit RPG of 2019 has been remastered with better graphics, improved performance, additional animations, higher resolution environments and more.”

This follows for the console versions, which are said to feature improved load times and performance. Unfortunately, all existing improvements are marred by the inclusion of many new bugs.

A big point of contention from fans is that this update requires a purchase to access it. If you own the main game and both DLC expansions, Spacer’s choice will cost you an additional $9.99. This pseudo-GOTY version costs $60, meaning players without the DLC would either have to spend that amount or purchase each pack for a total of $30 with an additional $10 purchase to upgrade. It’s not a great situation.

It should be noted that the final decision to publish Spacer’s choice depends on the publisher Private Division. The Outer Worlds was Obsidian’s last game before it was acquired by Microsoft, so the team likely had little control over the state of this new version. In any case, this isn’t ideal for either Obsidian or fans of the game, but with any luck, these issues will be ironed out with additional patches.
