- The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon
- The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos
The Outer Worlds borrows a lot from Fallout. More specifically, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, the latter being developer Obsidian's own creation. You travel between disgruntled communities, picking up quests and shooting people you don't like. You click your way through branching dialogue options, and the camera zooms in on a...
Actual murder on the dancefloor
The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is the game's second and final expansion. Just like Peril on Gorgon, it's another solid adventure that takes you to a whole new location. This time around, the crew of the Unreliable find themselves on the Grand Colonial — essentially a massive hotel complex that orbits the...
Welcome back, Captain
Bloody corporations, eh? They've only gone and done it again! Peril on Gorgon is The Outer Worlds' first expansion, and all told, it's a solid excursion. Your intrepid Captain and their crew find themselves travelling to the hellish Gorgon asteroid — a (mostly) abandoned testing site for dodgy space drugs. You're contracted...
Best skills and perks to pick in The Outer Worlds
Creating a character in The Outer Worlds can be a daunting process. Right at the beginning of the game, you have to think about base attributes and skills, and once you're off on your adventure, levelling up and bringing peace (or chaos) to Halcyon, you've got to start thinking about perks. There are...

Advice for rookie space captains
The beauty of The Outer Worlds is that you can play through it however you want. Good guy, bad guy, unstoppable psychopath, corporate lackey, sliver tongued coward -- you can be whoever you want to be, and it's a great role-playing title because of this. But whether you're prepared to do anything for a fistful of...
Is The Outer Worlds like Fallout?
Is The Outer Worlds an open world game? Obsidian's latest release certainly has a lot in common with existing open world titles like Fallout: New Vegas (which was also developed by Obsidian), but if you're expecting to explore a huge map with few boundaries, then you're probably going to be disappointed. Is The...

"It's not the best choice, it's Spacer's Choice!"
A native PS5 version of Obsidian's excellent sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds has been rated by the Taiwanese ratings board, suggesting that an updated version of the game could be heading to current-gen consoles. Called 'The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition', it would make sense for this version of...

Murder on Eridanos
Wow, it's admittedly been quite some time since we spared a thought for The Outer Worlds. The sci-fi RPG is back in the news cycle thanks to the fact that Take-Two has outed the release window for 'Murder on Eridanos' — the game's second (and as far as we know, final) expansion. According to the company's latest financial...
Get the crew back together
The first of two expansions for The Outer Worlds will launch on PlayStation 4 this September, developer Obsidian has announced. Titled 'Peril on Gorgon', the DLC will whisk you and your party away to an abandoned Spacer's Choice facility on an old asteroid. We're sure plenty of wacky adventures will ensue. You'll be able...
Less NPCs and content
The Outer Worlds might not have had the biggest environments to explore on PlayStation 4, with the likes of Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt dwarfing it, but at least those locations were fairly detailed. However, it could have been so much better. In a new interview with Danny O'Dwyer as part of No Clip, developer...
Not including Game Pass
Obsidian's The Outer Worlds took the RPG genre by storm last year when it became an instant hit on PlayStation 4, and it looks like that has translated into a big success at retail with more than two million copies shipped worldwide. This makes it the studio's most successful title since South Park: The Stick of Truth.
Welcome back, Captain
Fans of The Outer Worlds rejoice! The highly rated role-playing title is getting story DLC in 2020, developer Obsidian Entertainment has revealed in an end-of-year blog post.

Keep your glasses on
The Outer Worlds' patch 1.1 rolled out earlier today, which among other various fixes and updates, promised to increase the size of the game's text. Developer Obsidian has now successfully deployed that update, but the effect it has had on the font's size is completely negligible. As reported by VICE's Patrick Klepek, you can...
Still a team working on the game
Obsidian's The Outer Worlds has done rather well for itself ever since its October launch with sales that have exceeded expectations the developer held prior to launch. It's a major success for the now Microsoft-owned company, and it looks like more content could be on its way. In an
