Outer Wilds New Expansion Echoes of the Eye Launches September 2021

Going down the rabbit hole and going deeper.

Game company Mobius games has recently announced the newest expansion for video game the Outer Wilds called Echoes of the Eye.

The upcoming expansion will be launched on September 28, 2021 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will add a new mysterious location to the solar system with many secrets to uncover. Creative Director Alex Beachum stated that the team designed the expansion as if it was within the world of the game but was not discovered yet.

When the Echoes of the Eye launches later this year, players only need to visit the museum exhibit on Timber Hearth. This will mark the start of the last journey into the deepest, darkest part of the solar system.

The reason for releasing this new expansion was that the studio wanted to release a new project after the original game. It would not be that big or wild, but would also allow them to grow as developers and hopefully deliver something that would appeal to the fans.

Expect new mechanics in this new expansion and do not expect it to a small version of the original game. While the main game had a light horror feel to it, the expansion leans more on the darker elements.
