Following the release of the Peril On Gorgon expansion back in December, Obsidian Entertainment has announced that The Outer World: Muder on Eridanos releases on PC and consoles on March 17, 2021. Murder on Eridanos is the second DLC expansion for The Outer Worlds, and it adds new story content, a unique setting, and various weapons and character customizations.

The expansion’s premise 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.

The Outer World: Muder on Eridanos releases for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 17. The DLC will also be playable on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility. Murder on Eriadnos will release as a standalone purchase, and it will also be available for players who have purchased The Outer Worlds expansion pass.
