The second Outer Worlds expansion will launch before April
“Halcyon Helen’s final (and finest!) adventure”
Private Division will launch the second expansion for The Outer Worlds before April 2021.
The news was announced on Monday as part of parent company Take-Two’s third quarter financial results.
The Outer Worlds’ second expansion, Murder on Eridanos, will be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC during Take-Two’s current fiscal year ending on March 31.
Featuring “Halcyon Helen’s final (and finest!) adventure,” the expansion will hit Nintendo Switch in calendar 2021.
The first The Outer Worlds expansion, Peril on Gorgon, released for PS4, Xbox One and PC in September 2020 and increased the level cap to 33. It will hit Switch on February 8.
Peril on Gorgon is available for $14.99 digitally or it can be purchased as part of the Outer Worlds Expansion Pass, which will also include Murder on Eridanos, for $24.99.
It was claimed last October a new The Outer Worlds game was in pre-production at developer Obsidian Entertainment.
Microsoft, which acquired Obsidian in November 2018, has said it hopes to build The Outer Worlds into an “enduring franchise”, while the game’s narrative designer told VGC in 2019 that the studio is “absolutely interested” in fleshing out The Outer Worlds with future games and already has “a full universe of lore”.
Obsidian is currently working on Avowed, a triple-A fantasy RPG that takes place in Eora, the world in which Pillars of Eternity is set.
