    Tags: Carrie Patel; Obsidian Entertainment; The Outer Worlds; The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon

    Obsidian announced way back in December that they were planning to release story DLC for The Outer Worlds this year. Over seven months later they finally revealed the first one today at Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase event. The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is a full-fledged late game expansion, a "noir-tinged" mystery set in an abandoned Spacer's Choice research facility on the Gorgon Asteroid. The story apparently involves investigating the origins of the Adrena-Time drug, implied in the base game to be responsible for Halcyon being infested with psychotic marauders. The expansion features an increased level cap, new perks, flaws and skill tier unlocks, and new gear including three additional science weapons. Also audio logs, because you can't have a mysterious abandoned space facility without those. Here's the announcement trailer:


    After the announcement, a number of websites published their interviews with the expansion's game director Carrie Patel and its art director Matt Hansen. The most notable takeaway from the interviews is that development on Peril on Gorgon actually began in January 2019, before The Outer Worlds was released. When the game turned out to be a commercial success, they decided to restart development and make the expansion significantly larger. It should be roughly comparable in scope to Monarch. Here's a list of interviews I was able to track down:

    Peril on Gorgon is releasing on September 9th and will be priced at $15. It's the first of two planned expansions for The Outer Worlds and will also be available as part of a $25 expansion pass. This wasn't the only Obsidian title announced today, but I'll save that for a separate newspost.

    Will the 2nd DLC make the women attractive?

    No.

    Gays dont care about women being attractive. Thats why women in this game are ugly while men are handsome and good-looking.

    There was slogan "Gamers for gamers". For this game it is: Gay for gay.

    I don't really know who will end up playing this since everyone with even a slight interest towards the game paid 1 dorra for the gaym pass and played this thing over a couple of days. It's going to have beyond minimal install base at this point.

    'Minimal' So yeah like 2m easily parted with their monies console peasants along with an upcoming Steam release.

    It wouldn't be getting DLC if it flopped, let alone two and a triple A funded sequel already in the works

    How can they come up with expansion packs when the game still hasn't released on any platform that matters?

    And it's such a simple recipe, too - add attractive, romanceable women, and you'll have the waifu demographic immediately in your pocket. Add attractive males, and the lonely females come to your product. I'm all the more astounded since BioWare figured this out two decades ago.

    Looks more "more of the same" and base game lacked deep RPG-mechanics and varied combat (/AI behavior) to be interesting.



    Noteworthy, however, is that Leon is not directing this...already on another project?

    Well, it is possible that he and/or Tim are involved with TOW's second expansion.

    I imagine Patel's doing both, considering that Brandon Adler directed all the Deadfire DLC.

    Honestly can't bear more of the gameplay loop. It got so repetitive by the end, game's a shadow of what Prey brings to the table.

    Looks like a fat turd draped over the edge of a rest-stop porta-potty on the hottest day of Summer.
