Obsidian has revealed that The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition is coming to PS5 on March 7, 2023 complete with a bunch of key additions including full support for the DualSense’s unique functionality. If you may recall, the Spacer’s Choice Edition was previously outed last year via ratings in Taiwan and on the ESRB.
So, what of the new features? Well, for starters, The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition comes with some visual enhancements, allowing the game to run at 4K/60 FPS. There’s also improved volumetric lighting, spruced up particle systems, and increased asset density.
The DualSense also comes into play, as detailed in the PlayStation Blog post below.
When employing ranged weapons, players will appreciate different trigger effects depending on the type. For a weapon like the flamethrower, the player will sense linear pressure. When firing an automatic weapon, trigger kickback will generate a pulse-like effect for each round fired. And for single-shot weapons such as a sniper or a shotgun, the trigger pressure effect will mimic the sensation of squeezing a trigger until the pin fires and the resistance lessens. Pretty neat, right? The game won’t just look better, it’ll also feel sharper.
In addition to the base game, The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition will also feature the accompanying DLCs Peril on Gorgon and Murder on the Eridanos.
