Obsidian issues apology for The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition performance issues

By Sean Carey,

Obsidian has issued an apology for performance issues in The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition and is working on a patch to address many of the visual and performance problems playing are facing in the remaster.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition launched earlier this week for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC bringing with it visual improvements, new animations, an increased level cap, and more. However, reports have been rolling in about the game's poor performance, with many saying it runs worse than the original release, which has prompted Obsidian to issue an apology.

"I am sorry that you all have been experiencing performance issues with The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition," an Obsidian player support staff member posted on Reddit (thanks, VGC). I understand how frustrating this can be, and I assure you the team at Private Division is working on getting a patch out as soon as possible."

Players across Reddit and social media are recommending that you avoid the Spacer's Choice Edition and stick with the original version of the game (which we have down as one of the best games on Game Pass) until a patch or two is released that fixes the performance issues. Private Division has said on Twitter that a patch for both PC and consoles is coming soon and that it will share patch notes "before the end of next week."
