Obsidian ‘Apologizes’ for problematic launch of The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition

Developer Obsidian has apologized on Reddit for the performance issues plaguing The Outer Worlds: Spacers’s Choice Edition following its March 7 release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

“I’m sorry you all have experienced performance issues with The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition,” the post read. “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. Once we have more information about this patch, we will make sure to let people Know it.”

The Reddit post also provided a link where players could submit support tickets to the publisher’s Private Division as and when they encounter issues with the game.

Spacer’s Choice Edition got off to a shaky start earlier this week, with players reporting poor performance for both the PC and console versions of the game. There are numerous posts on the game’s subreddit bemoaning the issues, and the Steam rating for the game is currently very negative.

Spacer’s Choice Edition – which includes the Murder on Eridanos and Peril of Gorgon DLC packs – was expected to bring a number of improvements to The Outer Worlds, including a dynamic weather system, overhauled lighting and improved loading times.

The remaster was launched with a price of $59.99. However, for customers who already own the original game and its DLC on PS4, Xbox One or PC, there is a $9.99 upgrade path available.
