Seems like we’re getting some more of The Outer Worlds as Obsidian announced that the studio has plans to expand the game next year. The news was announced via a new forum post on Obsidian’s page under the headline “A Special Thank You From Obsidian”. The developers thanked all fans of the game and revealed their plans to introduce a new story DLC which is scheduled for 2020.
The post reads:
“We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds. It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance – Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards.
To all of those who voted for us in The Game Awards, you are all fantastic and we are so grateful for your support. The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot. However, the journey isn’t over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year! Details will be made available at a later date.”
To be honest, this wasn’t a big surprise since The Outer Worlds was selected as one of the best RPG games of 2019. It was nominated for the Game of the Year in The Game Awards 2019 alongside some other categories. We’ve also picked this game to our own Eneba favorites list. The Outer Worlds has a huge potential for the future – Obsidian might add new planets, stories and missions to uncover, so we’re already excited for the game’s future.
As for the release date of the new DLC, this shouldn’t be far off. It’s not yet revealed but we hope to learn more about it in the coming months. The Outer Worlds is already announced for the Nintendo Switch release in early 2020, so we guess that the new DLC might be released sometime around that time, to further boost interest in the game.
For now, we suggest you check out our awesome holiday price for the title. The Outer Worlds might be one of the best games you can pick up for yourself or as a gift to anyone who loves sci-fi RPG.
