The Outer Worlds will be receiving its first major DLC when “Peril on Gorgon” is released next week on September 9th. To give players an idea of what they can expect, the dev team took to the airwaves to showcase gameplay in a brand new trailer. Game Director Carrie Patel is on hand to chat about what viewers are seeing as the trailer progresses.
Peril on Gorgon takes place on the Gorgon asteroid, which was the site of one of the most ambitious scientific undertakings in Halcyon: the development and synthesis of Adrena-Time, a drug intended to improve the productivity of workers across the Halcyon colony. After an expensive development cycle and several failed tests, the Spacer’s Choice corporation shuttered the project, and the abandoned facilities became home to marauders and a motley band of SubLight contractors.
During the adventures on Gorgon, players will be introduced to an entirely new storyline and new characters. In addition, they will be able to find tons of new gear including three new science weapons. One example is the P.E.T. (Pet Extermination Tool) that brings enemies close enough for melee combat. There are new armor sets and variations, new creature variants, and more perks/flaws.
Players will be able to get their hands on Peril on Gorgon on September 9th for $14.99. The next game expansion, Murder on Eridanos, is coming in 2021 for $14.99. Players can also purchase the Expansion Pack which contains access to both expansions for $24.99.
