Obsidian has released the first gameplay footage for the first The Outer Worlds DLC expansion Peril on Gorgon, with the walkthrough shown focusing on one of the side quests. The side quest is named “Love is the plan. The plan is death.” The footage starts with the player, along with companions Parvati and Felix, heading into a bar called the Sprat Shack where you discover that people have been changing for the worst. The Sprat Shack will act as a hub on Gorgon where side quests can be picked up. You can watch the pre-release footage below.
Once the player ventures out of the Sprat Shack combat is quick to appear, and the new footage shows the Pest Extermination Tool, one of the new science weapons found on Gorgon. This weapon can let you pull enemies towards you so hits can be landed. Portable phonographs will act like the audio logs from the base game to get information about the world, and discover what happened to the residents of Gorgon.
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon was revealed during the Xbox Series X Games Showcase, and a release date of September 9th has been confirmed for the DLC. In our original review for The Outer Worlds, Gareth wrote:
