Expect a title update on launch day for those who purchase physical copies of both Xbox and PS4 that will include tweaks and optimization fixes. This patch will be an estimated 38 GB download for Xbox players, and an estimated 18 GB for PS4 players. For digital purchases on both Xbox and PS4, the patch will be included in the pre-load of the game. To experience the game in the best way possible, please make sure to install this update before playing.

Those patch sizes are nearly the full game. Is that actually necessary?

I mean it doesn't concern me as I'm playing over GamePass on PC. But, wow.

Can you scale this to show the steam release date as well?

We're about a week from release and still no minimum and recommended system requirements listed anywhere for PC. When are those coming?

Yikes. I'm excited for this game's release, but that 38GB day-one patch on Xbox is going to be a major inconvenience. I pre-ordered the game on physical media so I could avoid a significant download. But judging from the size of this patch, it's going to be the equivalent of downloading the whole game.

I'm way out in the boonies and have to use satellite service for internet, so I have a data cap I need to manage each month (100GB). That day-one patch would wipe out 40% of my data for the month. 

I know it's a bit late in the game, but if there is any way you can guys can scale down the footprint for that patch, I (and I'm sure many others) would greatly appreciate it. Either way, thanks for all your hard work, and I'm sure the game will be amazing.

I totally second this. Hype is real, but if I have to buy a new OS (Win 10) to play it, it will definitely be out of reach for me. 😕

For how long post-release content (patches, DLCs, expansions) will be coming?
(When can I purchase and download the game once? These launch-day updates are terrifying).

You do realize Windows 7 will only be supported for two more months right? Nothing releasing anytime soon will probably be available for less than 10.

I hope y'all know that Munich is not the capital of Germany... ;)

I presume the release dates for Steam are exactly 1 year after the ones shown above?

I can only get it via Steam 'cause I'm on Linux. Like - all the time. It taking its toll...

Now I'm even more impressed that you haven't upgraded.

I had. Then my hard drive died, and the only OS I had to reinstall on my new drive was Win 8.

^ That, and the Windows 10 upgrade is still free anyway.

Oh yeah? Didn't find it when I tried to do it last time. I will go back to search it.

Update : Thanks humanoid, I fonud it and now i'm back on 10. Game pass, here I come! 🙂

Pulled in the 17GB "update" on Xbox last night. I expect another one just prior to release, but cleared next weekend for Outer Worlds exploration. I went through New Vegas several times, so hoping this space themed version goes really well.

oh, Seattle, near Redmond, I understand ... great map

what a treat, 4pm the day before ... work never saw me leave so early on a Thursday

also, PS4 pre-load begins tomorrow: backup for my abysmal inability at WASD; The Outer Worlds isn't, by chance, real-time with pause, screen-edge scrolling, is it ...


All Stop. On Screen.
