Private Division said: “The Outer Worlds is enhanced for both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. The Outer Worlds includes 4K textures and resolution on Xbox One X and PC, and upsamples to 4K from 1440p on PlayStation 4 Pro. The game looks great across all platforms and we’re excited for players to experience The Outer Worlds on October 25th.”
Original story: The Outer Worlds will feature 4K enhancements for Xbox One X, but not for PlayStation 4 Pro.
The company said the game is “4K on Xbox One, no enhancements for PS4 Pro.” It’s unclear why this is the case, but it’s worth noting that Microsoft acquired Obsidian in late 2018.
In an interview published in September, the game’s narrative designer Megan Starks said Obsidian is “absolutely interested” in fleshing out The Outer Worlds with future games and already has “a full universe of lore”.
The Outer Worlds, which won the Game Critics E3 2019 award for Best Original Game, is being co-directed by original Fallout creators Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky.
It will debut on October 25 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, the same day as a new Fallout software collection for PC called Fallout Legacy hits stores, as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
