The Outer Worlds’ Peril on Gorgon Expansion Released on Switch
The Peril on Gorgon expansion for Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division’s The Outer Worlds is now available on Nintendo Switch. The expansion is available separately for $14.99 or as part of the $24.99 Expansion Pass that also includes the upcoming second expansion Murder on Eridanos.
Peril on Gorgon was released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in September 2020 and takes players to the Gorgon Asteroid, the site of one of Halcyon colony’s more disastrous scientific endeavours, which is now overrun by monsters and other hostiles. Wealthy recluse Minnie Ambrose tasks them with finding answers regarding her mother, Dr. Olivia Ambrose, who was director of the project. In addition to the new story, the expansion includes new locations, new weapons and gear, a higher level cap, and new character perks and flaws.
The Outer Worlds is co-directed by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, two of the original creators of Fallout. The game features first-person exploration and combat, with players able to use “Tactical Time Dilation” to slow time down, as well as branching dialogue, a companion system, and setting heavily influenced by player decisions.
