The Outer Worlds have never looked so smooth.
The Outer Worlds has received an update that allows the game to run at a smooth 60 frames per second. The sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment previously ran at 30 fps, but following the game’s latest patch, the new frame rate is available on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Obsidian previously stated that the game would be optimised for Xbox Series X. However, Reddit thread contributors confirmed this morning that the game’s latest 26GB update sneakily improved its frame rate. This will be a welcome addition to any fans of The Outer Worlds, with 60 fps steadily becoming the industry standard, particularly on new-generation consoles. The update comes just one week before the launch of Murder on Eridanos, which is the game’s second and final piece of additional content.
The game already supported 4K resolutions on previous generation consoles, which came at the cost of extended load times. The power of SSD on PS5 and Xbox Series X, partnered with the new optimisation, means that both enhanced resolution and frame rates can be attained whilst reducing load times.
The Outer Worlds launched to positive reviews back in 2019 as a spiritual and comedic successor to the Fallout franchise. The update is available now on both PS5 and Xbox Series X in all its buttery smooth glory.
