With the successful launch of The Outer Worlds on 25 October 2019, it was only a matter of time that Obsidian would announce a DLC for the beloved game. Outer Worlds also saw itself being nominated for Best RPG, Best Narrative and Best Performance by Ashly Burch. Unfortunately, Obsidian didn’t take any home but they certainly took the hearts of millions who played this wonderful game.
The announcement came in the form of a post by Obsidian who took to Twitter to thank fans for the support and shared a link to a forum that revealed a DLC is coming. “The journey isn’t over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year!”
For now, no information has been shared about the DLC and what players can expect. Although knowing Obsidian’s hard work and determination, you can expect the DLC to be a great addition.
The Outer Worlds will also see itself being released on the Nintendo Switch during its 2020 fiscal year, meaning the game will likely drop March 31, 2020. Furthermore, a sequel to Outer Worlds is already being worked on by Obsidian and Private Division but won’t be dropping anytime soon. However, unlike the approach of the first game, the sequel likely won’t see a return to the open-world structure.
I’m always skeptical of this idea that seems to be going around in AAA development that open-world is the standard. That if you’re going to have a very big budget game that it should be open-world. I think it’s very easy to get burnt out on open-world games because they tend to be so sprawling, so massive, that every open-world game you play tends to be the kind of the same thing.Nitai Podder
