Obsidian is preparing the second DLC expansion for The Outer Worlds, Murder on Eridanos, and it’s closer than you expect. As part of Take-Two’s earnings report, the company noted that it expects DLC to start in this fiscal year, which ends March 31.
The company did not provide further details on when you could expect DLC, or more game information. But with less than two months left before the release, we should expect to hear more about it sometime soon. The same accounts also note that we will see the Switch version of DLC come sometime this calendar year.
Murder on Eridanos is the second half of the two-part expansion card that also includes the already released Peril on Gorgon. Given the name, it sounds like you want to be a gumshoe investigating a murder, which fits Outer World̵
Danger on Gorgon raised the level cap to 33 and added new advantages, shortcomings, scientific weapons and armor sets. It also added a new environment, the Gorgon asteroid. You needed to complete Radio Free Monarch to even begin the new mission, but Obsidian recommended that you start with your character around level 25. Murder of Eridanos can increase the level cap even further.
Peril on Gorgon cost $ 15 as a standalone purchase or $ 25 with the expansion card, so we can probably expect the same price for Murder on Eridanos. The Outer Worlds is included in an Xbox Game Pass subscription, but DLC is sold separately. Game Pass subscribers get a small discount on DLC, bringing stand-alone DLC down to $ 13.50 and expansion cards to $ 22.50.
