The most recent Xbox Games Showcase just debuted a couple days ago, and whilst we got a good look at some Halo Infinite campaign gameplay, one of the biggest takeaways was just how busy Obsidian clearly is. The first of which they unveiled was the first DLC expansion for their sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds.

Peril on Gorgon takes players to a new area, an asteroid known as Gorgon, in order to investigate the origins of the space drug Adrena-Time. This pulp-noir tinged adventure will add a “substantial amount of content”, along with new weapons, armor, perks, flaws and an increased level cap of 33.

It’s the first of 2 planned expansions, the second already named Murder on Eridanos, which I can only assume would involve some sort of murder mystery. Eridanos is also one of the locked planets in The Outer Worlds that players couldn’t travel to.

You can purchase The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon separately or in a bundle of 2 in preparation for the second DLC. Game Pass owners can get a 10% discount on the expansions with their subscription. Peril on Gorgon release on September 9th.

What do you think? Are you excited for the new DLC coming to The Outer Worlds? What kind of mystery do you think we can expect? And what kind of character build did you make? Let us know!

not gonna lie, semi scared for the future of Obsidian. Seems like they have a lot on theyre hands at the moment and despite the massive resource boost from being picked up by microsoft, i fear it may prove more overwhelming than helpful. I feel like Obsidian are at their best when theyre working with little

I was kinda disappointed with Outer Worlds. It was a decent game, but kinda shallow and fairly short. It was not up to their usual storytelling standard and quality standard. I felt like I finished the game 1/3rd in. I was an invulnerable killing machine at that point, I could get anywhere and do anything. Kept playing it expecting more, but more never came and the ending was very anticlimactic.
Hope this adds more to the game, I'd love to see that.

On a lighter note, this game helped me find Outer Wilds (because I confused their names), which is a fantastic game, fitting in my all time favorites.

Remember its not a AAA game but a AA game that punches beyond its weight class. As a testing ground it turned out a solid game but theres no argument that its below fallout new vegas quality.

Hah, if it were a AAA game the story would be considered above average and so would the characters. As is it fell short being neither gripping with gameplay nor narrative. Even the world you could explore was either too small aor too empty with hostile mobs filling voids of space.

I would expect nothing less from Obsidian. The old world blues DLC was one of my favorite parts of the whole game.
