The Next Outer Worlds DLC Is Giving Us Some Dystopian Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory Vibe [Update]

The second half of The Outer Worlds’ season pass (and the next game’s DLC) is arriving this month, with developer Obsidian reminding us about it with a teaser trailer.

The second DLC will be called Murder on Eridanos. Basically, the protagonist’s ship The Unreliable lands on a floating platform after we’re given an overview of the defunct industrial zone; we’re guessing that’s the planet Eridanos.

After that, this tweet popped up; it’s a picture of a Willy Wonka-like golden ticket to give us access to Rizzo’s, the in-game corporation that make all their food products from a fruit called “purpleberry”.

The DLC will feature a murder mystery storyline, a unique world, and new weapons and character customization. Your level cap is increased by 3, and you have three new science weapons to find.

For you lorehounds out there, the second DLC will mark the final adventure of one Halcyon Helen, a fictional character in the world of The Outer Worlds who stars in the serial called Terror on Monarch. She is basically the murder victim in the DLC title; guess it’s up to you to find out what happened.

The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos will be out 17th March for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The last DLC, Peril on Gorgon, was a really fun DLC that’s worth the money. Find out more about it in our review.
