About Peril on Gorgon expansion:
Peril on Gorgon begins with a cryptic message beckoning you to investigate the Gorgon Asteroid. This remote scientific facility was once a beacon of crowning achievement in developing Adrena-Time, a modern marvel which improved health and worker productivity. However, the program was abruptly and inexplicably shut down. You must venture through deep canyons, defunct laboratories, and abandoned research facilities to piece together the clues that hold the truth behind one of the darkest secrets within the Spacer’s Choice corporation. What will you find on Gorgon?
“We wanted to dig into pulp noir to explore the seedier side of Halcyon’s corporations,” said Carrie Patel, Game Director at Obsidian Entertainment. “With Peril on Gorgon, players (and their favorite crew members!) can explore an exciting new location filled with intrigue and threats, and they can uncover dangerous secrets about Spacer’s Choice.”
Peril of Gorgon expansion will add a lot of new content for the fans. It will increase the level cap within the game, which allows more flexibility in skill customization and there are more perks and flaws which can provide rare bonuses or unique obstacles. It will also introduce three new science weapons and different kinds of new armor sets.
“The Outer Worlds is a deeply satisfying RPG, full of the player choice and a rich narrative audiences have come to expect from Obsidian, and Peril on Gorgon is a true to form expansion,” said Allen Murray, Vice President of Production at Private Division. “This expansion welcomes players to return to the Halcyon colony for even more of the dark humor, compelling story, and exciting adventures that they loved from the base game.”
Peril on Gorgon is now available for only $14.99 digitally for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store. It is also available in a bundle for only $24.99 including the second expansion Murder on Eridanos. Xbox Game Pass owners will receive a 10 percent discount for purchasing it.
