The talented team at Obsidian Entertainment recently announced new downloadable content for The Outer Worlds which is titled Murder on Eridanos. The DLC is coming to platforms on 17th March, but Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait a bit longer for it to release on Nintendo’s platform. The game’s Twitter account was asked by a fan when Switch owners can expect Murder on Eridanos to drop and they replied that we will have to wait a little longer as they are still working on it. Here’s the details about The Outer Worlds Murder on Eridanos from the PlayStation Blog:
“The core of Murder on Eridanos is to solve a crime… and murder is just the beginning of what you will find. You will have to interrogate witnesses, learn about potential alibis, and argue who you believe is responsible. This also leads to some entertaining outcomes as it is up to you to decide what to do. Do you falsely accuse an innocent spectator? Do you present a poor case with lack of evidence? How will others respond? What happens if you try to convince people that you somehow are responsible for the murder? Yes, even that is possible!
Through this DLC, you will meet iconic characters in The Outer Worlds universe like the frequently-cast actor Spencer Woolrich and the legendary tossball player Black Hole Bertie. You may recall Spencer from prior movie posters as he was one of Helen’s co-stars, and Bertie is one of the greatest players to ever grace the game. It is up to you to find out what these characters were doing and decide their fate.
To assist you in your new role as inspector, you will have access to a completely new tool known as the Discrepancy Amplifier. This amazing device uses Science to reveal clues in your immediate surroundings. Not only does it expose details which will unlock new quest options, it also provides its own humorous analysis of those details. We know you will enjoy this marvelous scientific partner, and we cannot wait to see everyone’s reactions as they use it throughout the expansion.
Finally, it wouldn’t be an expansion for The Outer Worlds without additional perks and flaws, new scientific weapons, armor variants, and plenty of additional quests and choices to make along the way – so you will find those too in Murder on Eridanos. And while there is much to uncover, feel free to also stop and take a moment to appreciate the scenery, especially at corporate-approved scenic overlooks. Your adventure takes place at a luxury tourist destination run by the Rizzo corporation. This premiere locale consists of a collection of drifting islands being pulled through an ever-constant storm in the planet’s upper atmosphere. Our artists and designers did a great job in beautifully crafting this amazing setting, and we hope you enjoy it too.”
No date has been announced at this time, but we are working on it!
