Moving Out’s Day One Patch Includes 4K Support, Single Player Co-op

The release date of Moving Out, the much-anticipated chaotic multiplayer removalist simulator from Australia’s own SMG Studio is almost upon us, and we now know what’s in store for the game’s obligatory launch update.

Already live and available to us in our review copy of the game on PlayStation 4, the Version 1.01 patch adds a laundry-list of fixes and updates to the game, including some significant new features. Check out the full patch notes below (be warned there are some story spoilers in one or two of them, read at your own risk):

Moving Out Version 1.01

  • Bug fixes and game tuning
  • Added Dual Mover Mode
  • Added additional character customisations
  • Added dance moves and dance customisations
  • Updated art on many levels
  • Added information about the ‘other’ mover in single player games
  • Added random licence plates to the truck
  • Added milliseconds to the game timers
  • Added Pack Rat boss dialog to final battle
  • Added new particle effects
  • Updated delivery area
  • 4K Support

One of the big takeaways here is of course 4K support, which is nice to see and presumably only available on the ‘enhanced’ consoles (it’s worth noting we don’t know if this patch is identical on Xbox One, Switch and PC as we haven’t tested those versions of the game).

The other big update of note is Dual Mover Mode, which adds an option to the game for playing as two characters with just one controller – perfect for people like our own Kieran Stockton who love to play games designed for multiplayer co-operation on their own. We’ve tested Dual Mover Mode a fair bit while playing the game for review and can confirm it takes a lot of getting used to. One of those pat-your-head-while-rubbing-your-belly type situations. It’s awesome.

Happy moving!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
