The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition Patch v1.1 Available

The Spacer’s Choice Edition of Obsidian Entertainment’s humorous sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds launched earlier this month, and was immediately panned by just about everyone due to assorted performance issues. Which now leads us to the first patch for this new edition that should make the game run better across the board, and deal with a number of annoying visual glitches in the process.

Here are the patch notes:
