The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition has made its debut on Steam , and fans of the original game have been eagerly waiting to see what the new edition brings. Unfortunately, the initial impressions are not favorable, as the game seems to be suffering from performance issues that significantly impact the gameplay experience.
The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice (more like cash grab) Edition is a disappointing “upgrade” from the original version of the game, especially on the Steam Deck. Despite the promise of improved graphics, the performance of the game is extremely poor and plagued by interfering gameplay stuttering. The game runs much worse than the original version, making it not worth paying for the upgrade.
