The Outer Worlds Murder On Eridanos DLC: Release Date, Price And Everything We Know So Far

The Outer Worlds is getting its second expansion, The Murder on Eridanos, later this year.

Following on from the noir-tinged Peril on Gorgon, Obsidian's first-person RPG has been popular – offering a Fallout-style title without Fallout 76's multiplayer hangups.

Here's everything we know about the expansion.

What Is The Murder on Eridanos DLC?

In truth, we don't know a great deal about the expansion.

All we know is that it features "Halcyon Helen’s final (and finest!) adventure" according to the Microsoft store page.

Wondering who that is? You won't find her in the base game.

Halcyon Helen is a fictional character within The Outer Worlds' universe portrayed by Ruth Bellamy – could the expansion offer a silver-screen theme?

We'd also expect a level cap increase, as with the last expansion.

Release Date

According to Take-Two's financial results, the expansion will launch before the end of the current fiscal year – meaning it'll launch before March 31, at least for PC, PS4 and Xbox.

For Switch players, you'll need to wait a little longer – but the expansion is slated for this calendar year (2021).


The expansion will cost $14.99 and is included in an Expansion Pass with the next expansion for $24.99. You'll also get a 10% discount if you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber.

Expansion Trailer

We don't have a trailer yet, but we do have the trailer for Peril on Gorgon – just in case you need to be convinced to pick up the season pass and jump into the first expansion right now.
