The second main piece of DLC for The Outer Worlds is about to drop for fans of the game. It's called The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos and it will be released on March 17, 2021 for the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms. This will take players to a murder mystery adventure thanks to the efforts of Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division.

Players will take to the skies of Eridanos to "unravel the grandest murder mystery in the Halcyon colony." As with all good murder mysteries, everyone is a suspect. Players will try to figure things out after Rizzo's hired spokesperson, Halcyon Helen, ends up dead ahead of the release of the new Spectrum Brown Vodka. Players will travel across various floating islands to piece together the clues using the "Discrepancy Amplifier, a new gadget that highlights otherwise unseen hints."

Murder on Eridanos is the second and final expansion for The Outer Worlds. It can be purchased on its own or bundled at a discount with the Expansion Pass. If you do not yet own the game, it looks like the base game is on sale for 50% off right now, at least on Steam.

Key Features

• Murder mystery: Suspicions abound, and it’s up to you to get to the bottom of the murder of Halcyon Helen, the most well-known celebrity in the colony. Use the new Discrepancy Amplifier, your key to solving the case, as it highlights temporal inconsistencies not otherwise seen with the naked eye.

• A unique world: Travel among the floating islands of Eridanos, from the luxurious confines of the Grand Colonial Hotel to Rizzo’s colorful groves. But be careful about the smiling employees you encounter, as there’s something dark lingering under the bright and cheerful surface.

• New weapons and character customization: Three new science weapons can be added to the player’s arsenal alongside weapon and armor variants to use while solving the case. And increase your level cap by three and employ new perks and flaws to create your most unique character yet.
