The Outer Worlds' physical release on Switch requires a download

The outer limits of your storage

GN Version 5.0

The Outer Worlds is coming to Switch on June 5th, 2020, following a delay of a few months. As an added bonus, Obsidian announced that the previously digital-only title was going to get a physical release. Unfortunately, now we see there should have been an asterisk in that original announcement.

According to the game box for The Outer Worlds, a download is going to be required for the physical release. We did hear of a day-one update for the game that would be somewhere around 6 GB, but we're unsure if this required download is referring to that day-one update, or another separate download. Either way, make sure you have some storage on your Switch if you plan on going with the physical copy.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!
