Obsidian's 2019 RPG The Outer Worlds is getting a new "definitive edition"-style release. The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition packs in all of the game's DLC and makes a number of other improvements to the original, and it's set to launch on current-gen consoles and PC next week.

According to Obsidian, The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition is "optimized to be the absolute best version" of the game. It features a number of improvements to visuals and performance, as well as new animations and higher-res environments to explore. You can also look forward to an increased level cap so you can adventure and explore for longer. Take a look at the trailer for the new version right here.

As well as hopefully fixing The Outer Worlds' many visual hiccups and performance hitches, the new version of the game will also contain both the Murder on Eridanos and Peril on Gorgon DLC packs, so if you haven't had a chance to experience those yet (or, indeed, to play the base game at all), then it sounds like this will be the edition for you.

If you already own The Outer Worlds on Steam, GOG, Epic, or the Microsoft Store, as well as the two additional DLC packs, you can upgrade to Spacer's Choice Edition for $9.99. Console owners will also need to pay this fee and own both DLC packs if they want to upgrade to the current-gen versions of the game; it doesn't sound like Spacer's Choice Edition is coming to PS4 or Xbox One at all. 

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on March 7th. The game is currently available on Xbox Game Pass for both console and PC, too. It's not clear whether Game Pass players will get access to Spacer's Choice Edition at no extra cost. Stay tuned for more info.
