Obsidian Entertainment's The Outer Worlds had quite a smooth launch across all platforms last month, but there were some rough edges like not having a text resizing option for high-resolution display users and those playing far from their TVs. Today, Obsidian pushed out the game's first update that deals with that concern, and several bugs some users have been experiencing.
Patch 1.1.10 should now be rolling out to players on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, weighing in at around 2GB. See the full list of resolved issues below:

Users still having issues are urged to head on to The Outer Worlds official forums' Technical Support section and report them there, if a thread doesn't already exist regarding them.
There's still no word on if Obsidian is planning any expansions for The Outer Worlds following its massively successful launch. It is likely, however, as the studio has pushed out story expansions for many of its RPGs, including Fallout: New Vegas, the Pillars of Eternity series, and Tyranny.
Moreover, recently during X019, the Obsidian announced Grounded, a co-op survival game made by a smaller team inside the studio, in which players will be the size of ants.
