The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition Has Been Patched Again On Xbox Series X And S

It's no secret that The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition wasn't the smoothest remaster job of all time, with Private Division's next-gen port not really doing the original game justice when it launched earlier this year. As expected, the team has been patching things up since then, and its latest effort does sound promising.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition Update 1.2 is out now, and it aims to address some of the remaster's biggest issues - like odd visual bugs and performance problems. Here are the full patch notes for version 1.2 (oh, and the game is currently on sale if you feel it's time to jump in!):
