Obsidian are calling this first DLC for The Outer Worlds a narrative expansion, and given everything we’ve seen that certainly seems to be the case. In fact, Peril on Gorgon seems to be bigger than anyone expected, with a hefty new adventure packed full of things to see and do.
But first, here’s the intro to the story. Upon finding a severed arm and a strange message, the trusty crew of the Unreliable head to the Gorgon Asteroid. This asteroid was the site of a scientific undertaking that was incredibly ambitious, and unfortunately for the Halcyon system, eventually disastrous. It’s since been taken over by monsters, marauders, and worse, and you’ll have to fight to survive as you explore its mysteries.
Wealthy recluse Minnie Ambrose is who you’ll be answering to as you search for her mother, Dr. Olivia Ambrose. Dr. Ambrose has gone missing and as the head of the scientific project on the Gorgon Asteroid, there’s plenty of answers to uncover and mysteries to solve. Shortly after landing you’ll quickly become embroiled in an intrigue which will change the fate of the entire colony – forever.
With new areas, new weapons, new quests, new characters, and whole new storylines to explore, Peril on Gorgon is a colossal DLC for The Outer Worlds that’ll be sure to give the game a whole new lease of life for any experienced crew.
