Latest Outer Worlds Patch Introduces 60fps Support On PS5 and Xbox Series X

A surprise patch for The Outer Worlds has introduced 60fps support for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X systems.

A number of online Twitter accounts (collected by wccftech) are reporting improved frame rates on both PS5 and Xbox Series X, likely introduced by a patch that came seemingly out of nowhere. The content of the 1.07 update hasn’t been communicated by either Obsidian or The Outer Worlds Twitter account at the time of writing, leading fans of the game to share their discovery with others on social media. There’s still no information on whether the frame rate improvements have also come to the Xbox Series S.

This introduction of smoother frame rates is a nice little bonus for players looking to dive into The Outer Worlds yet again for the release of the game’s final DLC. “Murder On Eridanos” will take players to a brand new planet to solve a grisly murder. You’ll be tasked with interrogating witnesses, establishing alibies, and ultimately accusing the fiend behind this horrific crime. The DLC releases this Wednesday on March 17th for all platforms.

A nice, smooth frame rate for older titles is something that Xbox fans have been getting used to lately, ever since the introduction of Microsoft’s FPS boost program. A number of Bethesda titles have also received the 60 fps treatment in celebration of Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media. Dishonored: Definitive Edition, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and Prey have all received a frame rate boost.

It looks like we can now add The Outer Worlds to the extensive list of older games seeing performance boosts on next-gen consoles. If you’re interested in jumping into the universe of The Outer Worlds, it’s currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. Those wanting to experience the aforementioned smooth frame rates will have to play the game on a next-gen console.
