The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition Update for PS5 and Xbox Series Rated

The Outer Worlds

Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds may be getting an updated edition for current-generation consoles and PC. Taiwan’s Entertainment Software Rating Information site classified a new version of the game, apparently titled The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition. “Spacer’s Choice” refers to a brand owned by one of the ten corporations that own and rule the Halcyon colony, the setting of The Outer Worlds. [Thanks, VGC!] The apparent reveal mirrors Korean ratings spotted by Gematsu in August 2022.

Check out a screenshot of the ratings info as seen on the site.

The rating, associated with Take-Two Asia, lists The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Alongside it is the original release, dated October 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Both editions are rated “R” for Violence, Drugs, and Inappropriate Language. Take-Two itself has not officially announced or confirmed the existence of the update. If true, this edition could feature graphical or performance updates or add the existing DLC content to the package.

The Outer Worlds is an open-world RPG in the vein of Fallout: New Vegas. It takes place in Halcyon, a star system founded as a completely company-owned planetary colony. Players control a colonist newly awakened after spending too many years in cold sleep and explore a colony wracked by generations of unchecked corporate exploitation. They can work for multiple factions and meet companions as they work to solve the mystery behind a series of crises threatening Halcyon’s future.

The Outer Worlds is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A sequel is in development.
