The Outer Worlds 'Murder on Eridanos' DLC Expansion Launches Next Week

Richard Walker

Obsidian has announced that sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds' second and final expansion will be releasing next week, tasking you with solving the grisly murder of renowned actress, Halcyon Helen. Fittingly titled ‘Murder on Eridanos’, the upcoming DLC will see you solving the crime in your own way, interrogating witnesses, learning alibis, and so on.

Ultimately, you'll have to deduce who you believe to be responsible for Halcyon Helen's untimely demise, which you can carry out in the most slapdash way imaginable by falsely accusing innocent spectators, presenting a poorly put together case with no evidence, or even convincing people that you did it.

Alternatively, you can channel your inner Columbo, and ensure that no stone is left unturned. Classic Outer Worlds characters also return for the DLC, like actor Spencer Woolrich, tossball legend Black Hole Bertie, and others. The new Discrepancy Amplifier tool will aid you in your investigation, using ‘Science’ to reveal clues.

With the tool in-hand, you can expose salient details to access new quest options and enjoy the humorous analysis that it throws out. The DLC also promises new perks and flaws, new scientific weapons and armour variants, as well as additional quests and choices to make, as you explore a luxury location run by the Rizzo corporation.

The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 17th March, available standalone or with the game's Expansion Pass, which also includes first DLC, Peril on Gorgon. Check out the opening cinematic below.
