The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos Out Now

Game company Obsidian Entertainment has released the final expansion Murder on Eridanos for the award-winning RPG The Outer Worlds.

Murder on Eridanos is the second and final story expansion for the popular sci-fi RPG. It is now available on all available platforms except on the Nintendo Switch, which will be released later this year. It will be available individually or at a discount as part of the Expansion pass, which also includes Peril on Gorgon expansion.

Venture to the skies of Eridanos and unravel the grandest murder mystery in the Halcyon colony. Everyone is a suspect in this peculiar whodunit after Rizzo’s spokesperson, the famous Halcyon Helen, is found dead just before the release of the brand-new Spectrum Brown Vodka. Uncover clues with the Discrepancy Amplifier, a semi-sentient device that shows the anomalies and inconsistencies of a crime scene. Unlock additional dialogue paths and different quest routes with each discovery. On your mysterious journey, you will encounter a host of interesting suspects, famous icons like Helen’s co-stars Spencer Woolrich and Burbage-3001, celebrity athlete Black Hole Bertie of Rizzo’s Rangers, and many more! Be careful as behind each eerie smile lurks a dark secret, but press on as your steadfastness is the key to unlocking this case. 

“With Murder on Eridanos we set out to unveil more about the memorable cast of The Outer Worlds universe while continuing to put the player front and center in a gripping and intriguing narrative,” said Megan Starks, Game Director at Obsidian Entertainment. “This expansion sheds light on another infamous corporation in a nearly implausible new setting and introduces new mechanics that push how we develop the story. It is a wild ride, and we can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions.” 

“Murder on Eridanos is a perfect climactic closure to this chapter in The Outer Worlds. It delivers on what made the original game great: deep player choice in a fantastic world,” said Michael Worosz, Executive Vice President and Head of Private Division. “Players should expect another riveting and humorous story, whip-smart dialogue, and much more. This expansion is an excellent reason to revisit The Outer Worlds or dive in for the first time.” 

The final expansion will also raise the level cap by three, which unlocks additional options for more skill customization. Players can obtain three more new science weapons, one being Helen’s signature gun The Needler. There are also a variety of new armor sets. Eridanos is a collection of drifting asteroid islands chained together and being pulled via the gas giant’s upper atmosphere. It also houses multiple locations to explore like the Grand Colonial Hotel and Rizzo’s colorful Purpleberry Orchards.

The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is now available for only $14.99 digitally for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Xbox Game Pass members can get a 10 percent discount to purchase this expansion. It is also available via the expansion pass for $24.99.
