What you need to know

  • Obsidian Entertainment's The Outer Worlds got a DLC expansion in 2020 called Peril on Gorgon.
  • The second and final DLC is called Murder on Eridanos.
  • Murder on Eridanos is set to be available on March 17, 2021.

Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division's The Outer Worlds released in 2019, with the first expansion, Peril on Gorgon, releasing back in September 2020. Now, the second and final DLC pack is on the way. The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is coming to Xbox, PC and PlayStation on March 17.

Murder on Eridanos is exactly what it sounds like, a murder mystery where players use deduction and some special tools to figure out whodunnit. Dark secrets abound and the list of science weapons in The Outer Worlds is growing, so there's plenty to look forward to. You can take a look at the opening cinematic for the DLC below.

Obsidian Entertainment previously confirmed that The Outer Worlds would be enhanced for Xbox Series X but there's been no update on the status of this upgrade since the initial comment.

It's worth noting that like Peril on Gorgon, Xbox players can get a discount buying the DLC if they are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.
