The Outer Worlds New Patch Features Bug Fixes and the Option to Increase Text Size

In one of the first big patches for The Outer Worlds, players will now have the option to adjust the font size of in-game text.

While it’s only been out for a few weeks, Obsidian Entertainment’s RPG The Outer Worlds has already found itself a legion of fans thanks to its compelling gameplay and irresistible world. Coming a few weeks after its debut, one of the game’s first patches is bringing a number of fixes to the space RPG, both major and minor.

Obsidian Entertainment has released the patch notes for update for The Outer Worlds, with the update aiming to address a number of general bug fixes and issues across all platforms. Specifically, one of the biggest updates (and noted fan requests) in the update is the ability to change the in-game font size for conversations with other characters, subtitles, and other text in certain areas of the game.

For a closer look at the exact updates and changes in the update for The Outer Worlds, you can find the patch notes below from Obsidian.

The Outer Worlds is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the game also coming to Nintendo Switch early next year. If you haven’t jumpstarted your adventure in Halcyon just yet, you can pick up the game now over on Amazon.
