The final expansion to the award-winning RPG launches next week.

Greetings gumshoes! Today, Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division announced Murder on Eridanos, the second and final expansion for The Outer Worlds, on Nintendo Switch will release on September 8.

Set coordinates for 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 spokesperson, the famous Halcyon Helen, is found dead just before the release of the brand-new Spectrum Brown Vodka. Uncover clues with the Discrepancy Amplifier, a semi-sentient device that shows the anomalies and inconsistencies of a crime scene. Unlock additional dialogue paths and different quest routes with each discovery. On your mysterious journey, you will encounter a host of interesting suspects, famous icons like Helen’s co-stars Spencer Woolrich and Burbage-3001, celebrity athlete Black Hole Bertie of Rizzo’s Rangers, and many more!

The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos will also bring a variety of new ways to expand your adventure:

  • The expansion raises the level cap by three
  • Unlock additional perks for even more skill customization
  • Obtain three new science weapons – such as Helen’s signature gun “The Needle”
  • Collect a variety of new armor sets
  • Explore a host of new locations, and more!

Murder on Eridanos is available on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99 as a standalone purchase or bundled through The Outer Worlds Expansion Pass (alongside the first expansion Peril on Gorgon)
