Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition has been out on Switch for close to a year, but the game is still receiving updates. Versus Evil says another upcoming patch “will resolve the outstanding reports of bugs players have encountered and should bring the Switch port to parity with the original PC version.” The team has addressed stability issues, ranged attacks and spells, a few performance issues, and corrupted VFX of Chanter class spells.

Below are the full patch notes:

While it’s great to have a portable version of The Outer Worlds, there’s no denying that the game could use a few improvements on Switch. The game significantly unfortunately struggles to reach its performance and resolution targets.

Thankfully, it’s been announced that a patch is on the way. Virtuos, the studio behind the port, is also said to be “investigating to further improve the game’s performance.”

Stay tuned for further information about the upcoming update, including its availability.
