The Outer World Update Brings Bigger Text to Game

The excellent Outer Worlds has, perhaps, one major issue. And I say “issue” in the loosest sense of the word as it’s not necessarily an issue for everybody. However, it’s enough for Obsidian to take action and change it.

In a recent patch update, Obsidian has addressed the size of certain fonts used in the loading screens and dialogue. With patch, users will be able to increase the font size through the UI tab in the settings menu. All fonts and texts included in conversations, cinematic subtitles, bark subtitles, and terminals can be increased in size.

The patch also solves a reported issue with the game as players have found the game crashes when reaching Tartarus. Other issues- such as the design of the Prismatic Hammer being rebalanced, Botched companion missions will be reverted to Active, and some textural improvements – have been addressed. The full list of updates can be found here, or, conveniently, below.

Additionally, Obsidian has made a forum for discussing improvements that they can implement into the game. The Technical Support forum can be found here. Beware of potential spoilers, however. You have been warned!
