Following its announcement, The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Murder on Eridanos is the second and final DLC expansion for the game, and it includes new story content, a unique setting, and various customization options.

Alongside the expansion, an update has been released for The Outer Worlds that removes the framerate cap when played on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The update also allows players attempting to play an expansion with a save beyond the “point of no-return” option, allowing them to play the expansion without the need to create a new game or character.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Murder on Eridanos is described by Obsidian as:

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 hired spokesperson, the famous Halcyon Helen, winds up dead ahead of the release of the brand-new Spectrum Brown Vodka. Alongside your companions, travel across the floating islands of Eridanos and piece together clues using the Discrepancy Amplifier, a new gadget that highlights otherwise unseen hints. There’s more to this mystery than meets the eye, and it’s up to you (and your crew, if you choose) to solve the case.

Murder on Eriadnos is available now as a standalone purchase on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The DLC is also available for players who have The Outer Worlds expansion pass.
