The expansion features a new storyline and environment, Obsidian also affirms that new gear can be found on Gorgon, including three new weapons.
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon takes place on the Gorgon asteroid, which was the site of one of the most ambitious scientific undertakings in Halcyon: the development and synthesis of Adrena-Time, a drug intended to improve the productivity of workers across the Halcyon colony. After an expensive development cycle and several failed tests, the Spacer’s Choice corporation shuttered the project, and the abandoned facilities became home to marauders and a motley band of SubLight contractors.
If you’ve completed the critical path of The Outer Worlds through Monarch, you’re ready to jump into Peril on Gorgon. If you’ve already beaten the game, you can either start a new playthrough (and maybe try out a new character build!) or use your final save game and go back to experience the DLC. We’ve increased the level cap to 33 in case you want to keep things going with your current character.
