For those who enveloped themselves in the sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds at the back end of last year, the arrival of a brand new expansion may be exactly what they’re after. The Peril on Gorgon DLC sees you venture to a fresh location, introduces new NPCs, lets you discover new weapons and much more.
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, which adds a fairly substantial amount of content to the game’s wickedly funny universe, courtesy of a brand new noir-tinged adventure that takes players to the Gorgon Asteroid. It’s the first of two planned expansions and owners of the new The Outer Worlds Expansion Pass – priced at £19.99 – can gain access to it immediately at no extra cost. It’s also worth noting beforehand that you need to have already progressed past Monarch in order to access the Peril on Gorgon content.
Upon arrival on Gorgon you’ll be required to investigate the mysterious origin of Adrena-Time, a drug intended to improve the productivity of workers across the Halcyon colony. This journey will send you traipsing through Gorgon’s treacherous canyons and into its abandoned corporate facilities. As part of your quest, a certain Dr. Ambrose’s scattered, resentful colleagues must be tracked down as you try to uncover a mystery that has shaped life in Halcyon.
Should you want to get involved without acquiring the Expansion Pass, the Peril on Gorgon can be bought separately for £11.99 from the Xbox Store – as well as the digital stores for the other aforementioned platforms.

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is the first narrative expansion to the award-winning RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. A severed arm and a mysterious message lead the crew of the Unreliable to the Gorgon Asteroid, formerly the site of one of Halcyon’s most ambitious and disastrous scientific undertakings, now a lawless den of monsters and marauders. Wealthy recluse Minnie Ambrose tasks the crew with finding answers about Dr. Olivia Ambrose, her mother and the doomed project’s disgraced director, but they are soon ensnared in an intrigue that will change the colony forever. Key Features: • Intrigue and danger: Search an abandoned Spacer’s Choice facility and encounter a cast of new characters as you uncover the mystery behind the sudden cancellation of the Gorgon Project. • New locations: Explore the treacherous canyons of the Gorgon Asteroid and encounter enemies that have been warped by science. • More science weapons: Discover three outlandish new science weapons, including the P.E.T. (Pest Extermination Tool), an exciting new melee weapon that draws in enemies for close-range attacks. • Expanded character customization and lore: An increased level cap, additional perks and flaws, wholly new armor sets, and several variants for existing gear. Plus, dig into the story of the Gorgon Asteroid with new Portable Phonograph audio logs that reveal the salacious secrets of a scientific experiment gone wrong.
