The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch Delayed Due to Coronavirus

Because of recent Coronavirus outbreak, Nintendo Switch port of The Outer Worlds is now delayed indefinitely.

Ahead of its release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, developer Obsidian Entertainment revealed plans to launch a Nintendo Switch version of their 2019 sci-fi action role-playing game The Outer Worlds.

An official date for Switch release of TOW was confirmed by publisher Private Division earlier but that has now been delayed indefinitely due to studio close down that was developing the port, following recent Coronavirus outbreak in China.

Singaporean developer Virtuos was tasked to port The Outer Worlds on Switch, which was originally scheduled to arrive on March 6, 2020. However, they had to close down all of their Chinese offices in wake of a sudden epidemic.

This unfortunate event is causing an unexpected delay to overall work progress and dev team will need more time to complete development. As soon as a new launch window is worked out by Virtous team, it will be revealed very soon.

Private Division has announced this news of delay on their official Twitter account alongside more details.

Previously, Switch version of TOW was planned for a physical release without a cartridge but a download code in an empty case. This was seen as a cash grab move by majority of player community and was criticized on social media.

Whether or not as a response to that feedback, Private Division will now include a game card for physical package of The Outer Worlds. Hopefully, people would appreciate their decision to offer actual value rather than just a code in a box.

Breath of the Wild Sequel Title and Gameplay Details Leaked

Recent leak at 4chan board claims that upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel is titled "Bond of the Triforce".

It was a huge shocker to many fans for developer/publisher Nintendo coming out announcing a sequel to acclaimed 2017 action-adventure game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild during Nintendo Direct presentation at E3 2019.

Since then, not much have been out there that players know about but most recently, a new leak from image-based online bulletin board 4chan may have revealed a title for the game along with some exciting gameplay details.

A new feature will allow you to switch between Link and Zelda when they are in dungeons. Link is only playable character and Zelda can only assist him with her latest ability to change weather as she has harnessed the power of nature.

Same leak has also stated that animals are to have bigger roles in Bond of the Triforce and players will be able to ride a bear. Moreover, new enemies and items will make debut, aside from a magic gauge, likely to be for Zelda.

Slingshot will return and one of those new items is supposedly be a plow-looking weapon to deal with large group of enemies at once. This "leaker" can be making things up or could have legit inside information but there is no way to confirm that.

The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch Release Date

Obsidian has finally revealed a release date for Nintendo Switch version of sci-fi RPG title The Outer Worlds.

Even before 2019 sci-fi action role-playing game The Outer Worlds could launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a Nintendo Switch version was confirmed by developer Obsidian Entertainment and publisher Private Division.

Original announcement for a port for Switch console of the game came from senior producer Matthew Singh of Obsidian by end of July last year and now an official date set for launch is revealed to be on March 6, 2020.

Upon release, TOW will become available on Nintendo eShop for digital download priced $59.99 only. Simultaneously, a physical version will also arrive on retail stores with a download code inside its box and no game cartridge.

This is a huge bummer for collectors who simply don't want to buy an empty case without a game card, which essentially means that many Switch owners would have to purchase an extra SD card after paying its full price already.

After this news was reported by Destructoid, Twitter user @Nibellion has pointed it out by posting an image.

The Outer Worlds base game has a file size of nearly 20 GB on PS4 console and Private Division could have easily ported that on Switch if they wanted to. Even for downloading TOW from eShop and play, players would still require a cartridge.

Bethesda pulled such a trick with physical release of their latest co-op shooter title Wolfenstein: Youngblood. However, CD Projekt Red has fitted The Witcher 3 main game and all post-launch DLCs into a single SD card for a Switch release.

Obsidian has teamed-up with Virtuos, who previously worked on Switch port of Dark Souls: Remastered and L.A. Noire. Also, a story-based DLC expansion is announced to release this year to show support to player community.

The Outer Worlds mostly received positive reviews aside from some criticism for its timed-exclusivity at Epic Games Store. It will be more fun for Nintendo Switch players to enjoy this acclaimed sci-fi RPG on portable system.

Doom Eternal Won't Have Micro-Transactions

Hugo Martin, creative director for Doom Eternal has stated to have no micro-transactions or in-game store.

Fans were initially bummed out when upcoming first-person shooter game Doom Eternal was delayed from a 2019 release schedule and is now only months away from its launch on March 20, 2020 for Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Due to recent track record of games released by publisher Bethesda Softworks in recent years, players were worried about its in-game economics and creative director Hugo Martin has assured of having no micro-transactions or loot boxes.

These days, you can never be assured that you will get your hands on all content of any AAA-game after purchasing it for a $60 full-price because of predatory monetization practices by major publishers but not when raising Hell on Earth.

Doom Slayer will only be able to unlock skins and it would only take XP in exchange, no real-world money. Martin highlights that there are no outside resources other than skills that you can trade to earn in-game cosmetic items.

RELATED: Doom Eternal, RAGE 2 and Wolfenstein Comes to Steam

In a private Facebook group for Doom series fans, Hugo Martin came out confirming no micro-transactions.

Eternal is a $60 game, not a free-to-play game or a mobile game - we are giving u a complete experience with no store just like you'd expect.

Not only are they staying away from including any pay-to-win mechanics, there won't be an item shop either for unnecessary in-store purchases. All you can get for Doomguy is various outfits with precious XP points or ignore them entirely.

In 2016, Bethesda has avoided such monetary efforts for Doom but released paid DLC packs on multiplayer modes. All of them were made free a year later with release of Update 6.66 with additional reworks for progression system and mechanics.

In a time when every major company in video game industry is trying to rip off their customer by costing extra over actual price of an entertainment product they already paid, such effort would likely be very appreciated by consumers.

Doom Eternal is a follow-up sequel to Doom from 2016 by developer id Software, which is set to arrive soon on all major platforms. A port for Nintendo Switch was announced during its official reveal that currently awaits a release date.
