The Outer Worlds will get story DLC in 2020

The Outer Worlds DLC is coming

Obsidian’s return to big-scale – if not quite Fallout-scale – RPGs with The Outer Worlds has been well-received by pretty much everyone, and if you were sad to say goodbye at the end of your adventures, the studio has good news. DLC for The Outer Worlds is on the way, which will expand the game’s story sometime next year.

“The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see,” the developers write on the official forums in light of the titles Game Awards nominations. “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.”

Exactly what that DLC will include remains to be seen, but depending on your actions in-game, the conclusion is pretty definitive – so a likely path for story expansions might be putting a new planet in, accessible on the map before your final save. But that’s pure speculation, so we’ll have to wait for that “later date” to see what’s actually in store.

If you’ve been waiting to grab the game on PC until it hits other stores, The Outer Worlds Steam version is coming – eventually. If you’ve picked it up on Game Pass, bear in mind that the subscription service typically doesn’t include DLC, so you’ll still have to purchase it separately.
