Peril on Gorgon, the first major DLC for Obsidian's The Outer Worlds, is out now on PlayStation 4.

The expansion begins with you receiving a cryptic invitation to investigate the Gorgon Asteroid, where you'll find an alien world of deep canyons, abandoned research facilities and glowing blue grass.

"We wanted to dig into pulp noir to explore the seedier side of Halcyon’s corporations," explained Game Director Carrie Patel. "With Peril on Gorgon, players (and their favourite crew members!) can explore an exciting new location filled with intrigue and threats, and they can uncover dangerous secrets about Spacer’s Choice."

Obsidian also outlined the key new features coming in Peril on Gorgon:

  • Intrigue and danger: Search an abandoned Spacer’s Choice facility and encounter a cast of new characters as you uncover the mystery behind the sudden cancellation of the Gorgon Project.
  • New locations: Explore the treacherous canyons of the Gorgon Asteroid and encounter enemies that have been warped by science.
  • More science weapons: Discover three outlandish new science weapons, including the P.E.T. (Pest Extermination Tool), an exciting new melee weapon that draws in enemies for close-range attacks.
  • Expanded character customization and lore: An increased level cap, additional perks and flaws, wholly new armour sets, and several variants for existing gear. Plus, dig into the story of the Gorgon Asteroid with new Portable Phonograph audio logs that reveal the salacious secrets of a scientific experiment gone wrong.

An Expansion Pass is also available that will bundle in the game's second DLC, due to release in the first half of 2021. You can check out the launch trailer for The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon down below!

The Outer Worlds is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
