    The Peril on Gorgon expansion DLC for The Outer Worlds is out today, over ten months after the release of the original game. That's lot of time for what appears to be a largely more-of-the-same expansion. Some critics have argued that popular opinion of The Outer Worlds has shifted negatively since it launched last year. If that's true, I'm not very many people will play this, but I suppose it will be a nice extra perk when the game is released on Steam next month. Here's the expansion's launch trailer, which appropriately is just the announcement trailer with a different ending slide:


    Here are the launch day reviews for Peril on Gorgon. The review scores suffer a bit due to its more-of-the-same nature. Beyond that, they also provide some details about the content the expansion adds to the game outside the Gorgon Asteroid.

    The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is available for sale on the Epic Games Store and the Microsoft Store for $15. Unlike the base game, Microsoft's Game Pass won't get you the DLC "for free", though it does give a 10% discount. It's also worth taking a look at the store page for the Expansion Pass, which has a few details about the game's second expansion, titled Murder on Eridanos. That's coming out next year.

    I never thought a day would come where I would completely ignore a game made by the creators of Fallout and Arcanum. Frank Herbert was right - hero worship leads only to misery.

    Why to play game which setting looks totally like current year Soymalia? Dirt, ugly and crazy people with danger hair running amok the streets and all is owned by Corporations? Even Normies have enough of this shit outside the windows.

    I'm having a distinct feeling that currently Obsidian is separated into two factions, with Sawyer and those championing more traditional RPGs being in one corner, and Boyarsky and his cronies in the other.

    You would be mistaken, Sawyer has no interest in traditional RPGs anymore.

    Sawyer never had an interest in actual RPGs:

    Well, it's not like he is wrong.

    I wouldn't consider Baldur's Gate an RPG either. It's some linear dungeon crawler hack and slay whatever.

    I don't know what you'd call a dungeon-crawling game with heavy emphasis on stats derived from tabletop RPGs other than "an RPG". If anything, this is an example of a parasite taking over its host organism, to the point they've eaten out the brains of designers like Sawyer and convinced him that the bastardized evolution of the thing is more the essence of the thing than the actual thing.

    Ancient RPGs of the 80s just emulated the dungeon crawling aspects because there was no way to actually make a real RPG back then. The Japanese ended up going cargo cult on this when it came to narratives.

    If anyone here has some insider info on Obsidian - is it true that the entire company is currently two factions who barely speak to one another? I reached out to some people about my previous post on this thread and, apparently, this is the case. Usually the info I get is reliable, but even I find this far-fetched.

    From what I've heard - and it may be complete nonsense - the egos of Sawyer and Boyarsky/Cain clash quite a lot, and since Sawyer isn't really good at personal conflicts, there's basically a "silent treatment" going on between both devs and "their" teams.

    Sounds made up given that most of The Outer Worlds narrative team came straight from Deadfire and a good deal of the designers worked on both. Sawyer's not even working on a big game now, it'd be like dozens versus five.

    Wouldn't be the first time a situation like this occurs at Obsidian. Ask Chris Avellone. Or Eric Fenstermaker.

    Those weren't factions. Factions is what happened with Alpha Protocol when one group wanted to make one kind of game and another group wanted to make another and they both did exactly that at the same time.

    "A larger group of people" and "a small number of people" within a company will still be considered factions. You're arguing semantics now. Stop it.

    Couldn't say. I've been on NeoGaf probably half a dozen times in total throughout my whole life. You mean someone in particular, or is this a joke/snide remark that went over my head?

    EDIT: Ah, so it's just some old man's attempt at a joke. Very funny. Much laughter.
