The Outer Worlds Spacers Choice Edition has faced multiple issues since its recent launch. Players have reported such significant problems that some have requested refunds. Many stated that the previous generation version of the game ran much smoother. The situation escalated to the point where Obsidian and Private Division had to issue apologies for the game’s poor performance. I personally watched the gameplay footage that was uploaded, and it was evident that the game was not in the best state.
This meant that Obsidian had to act which they did. This information is from PlayStation Universe so naturally, they focused on the version for PlayStation 5. Though we should expect the same changes made to The Outer Worlds on the Xbox Series X/S release.
