We’ve been waiting quite some time for Obsidian’s return to The Outer Worlds. The studio began exploring the idea of story DLC in late 2019, shortly after the base game’s successful launch and now, we are just a few weeks away from the first expansion’s release. If you want to see what Peril on Gorgon is all about ahead of time, then you’re in luck, as Obsidian has released new footage.
Peril on Gorgon will see players travelling to the Gorgon asteroid to investigate the origins of Adrena-Time, one of the consumable drugs in the game that allows time to slow down during combat. It is a dangerous consumable though, as once the effect wears off, you are left with a -1 to all attributes. With that in mind, there appears to be some science shenanigans going on behind the scenes creating this drug.
In the video above, uploading by Obsidian Entertainment, we get just under 12 minutes of gameplay footage for this new story DLC. Carrie Patel, game director, voices over the footage, guiding us through one of the new missions found in Peril on Gorgon.
Peril on Gorgon is the first of two story expansions coming to The Outer Worlds. It releases on the 9th of September and will be followed up by a second expansion in the months to come.
KitGuru Says: I’m looking forward to returning to The Outer Worlds, although it has been a very long time since the initial release at this point. Will many of you be returning for the new content?
