Hello everyone! I just wanted to answer a few of the comments here. First, I would like to let you know that HDR support will not be coming to the game, so we apologize for any inconveniences this may be causing some of you. Regarding the small font size, we are working on this and hopefully will have more information for you all soon. Same goes for ultrawide screen support; this is being investigated and we will keep you all updated. The Long Ranger bug is also being investigated, thank you for the report.

As for the "Head Bobbing" option, we did receive reports from some players that this was negatively impacting their game play, making them sick or dizzy. Because of this, the ability to turn the head bobbing on and off was added.

Now regarding the PS4 saving issue, we are still investigating this issue. At this time, if you are experiencing this can you please contact our publishing partner, Private Division, so they can collect the information we need to help our investigation? They have been fantastic in assisting us with all these issues and have been helping us compile the information needed to further our investigation.

I hope this information helps, and if there is something I missed, please let m know. Thank you!

That´s weird, I also play on xbox game pass for pc and the only bug I have encountered so far is the one that "makes" the skin tone of your character always black, but I read that it has something to do with AMD drivers.

Just wanted to give another +1 for ultrawide support -- I'm on 32:9 and the game is difficult to enjoy.

+2 for ultrawide!  It's not like these monitors are brand new tech, or sold after game release.

I have more or less stopped following Obsidian, but i must say, it is a good thing "The Outer Worlds" have a good patching policy like both "Pillars" had. This makes a huge difference to see a game being taken care of by devs after release. I'm relieved to see Obs beeing bought has not yet destroyed this good policy. I only hope for Obs to create good, deep, complex RPGs, like "New Vegas" was, rather than diluted things for the sake of accessibility, and prove me wrong when i say it will end up like Bioware or Bethesda did.

Well, i still haven't finished Pillars 1 or even installed Pillars 2 and its auto-healing 'thing' though ^^'

I have no such option in my settings. Game pass, Win 10. Version number says 1.3.470.0.

Nevermind that, 32:9 does some weird things to the UI. Found it.
