There are a lot of my fellow Enthusiasts who are really excited about The Outer Worlds. The latest game from Obsidian looks like it could fill the Fallout: New Vegas-style hole in their lives. From the game mechanics to the humour and style, this does look a little like a spiritual successor to one of the most popular games in the Fallout catalogue. Today we have news that the game features a sizeable day one patch. How sizeable I hear you ask? Well, if you were to pre-install the game you would be downloading 36.78 GB, the day one patch is around 38 GB. We think it is safe to say that you are basically redownloading the entire game plus a little extra.
That’s not the only news for the game today. Obsidian has also released an image showing exactly when you will be able to start playing the game. It’s basically midnight all around the world except for North America where everyone can access The Outer Worlds at midnight Eastern Time. You can check out the image below –
