The latest patch for The Outer Worlds fixes one of the sorest points I had with the game: breaking companion quests.
While you can’t actually romance anyone on your crew, even though many of the characters are definitely likeable enough to want to romance them, one companion quest involves helping a character find romance. It was so sweet that all I wanted to do was help my companion find love. The time came for the quest and immediately after I accepted it, I got a notification that my companion had died. WHAT. Reloads wouldn’t change this and while I could carry on using them with no issue, the quest was gone.
This carries on into the end of the game, where little epilogue scenes play out, showing you what your companions did after their journey with you came to an end. Everyone survived, but that bug made it that I saw a tiny one-liner about how that one character died thanks to meeting me. Great.
Thankfully that has been patched now, and you just need to add that character to your party when leaving the ship to get the quest again.
Another change is text size. If you are playing on a PC, the small text on terminals is fine to read. But on a TV in your lounge? Not a chance you are reading that comfortably. Toggles have been added to increase the font size of conversation text, cinematic subtitles, bark subtitles and terminal text, so you can read about the horrors these corporations are inflicting on their workers.
Patch 22.214.171.124 is on all platforms and fixes console sounds, trophies/achievements that were broken and more.
