Obsidian are finally ready to roll out the second DLC for The Outer Worlds, as Murder on Eridanos received a launch date and a launch trailer to go with it.

So, The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos launches on March 17, 2021, for PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles

"Pour yourself a bowl of Purpleberry Crunch and grab a glass of the triple-distilled deliciousness of Rizzo's Spectrum Brown Vodka, because next week's aetherwave serial of Murder on Eridanos is going to be a doozy", they tweeted.

There seems to be a strong noir note in Murder on Eridanos, which is perfect considering your job will be solving a murder mystery. 

As the story goes, the famous Halcyon Helen ends up dead ahead of the release of the booming new Spectrum Brown Vodka, leaving it up to you to tie up the loose ends and find the killer. Thankfully, your task will be made a bit easier thanks to the Discrepancy Amplifier, a new gadget that highlights otherwise obscure hints. 

Obsidian listed the key features as:

  • Murder mystery: Suspicions abound, and it’s up to you to get to the bottom of the murder of Halcyon Helen, the most well-known celebrity in the colony. Use the new Discrepancy Amplifier, your key to solving the case, as it highlights temporal inconsistencies not otherwise seen with the naked eye
  • A unique world: Travel among the floating islands of Eridanos, from the luxurious confines of the Grand Colonial Hotel to Rizzo’s colorful groves. But be careful about the smiling employees you encounter, as there’s something dark lingering under the bright and cheerful surface
  • New weapons and character customization: Three new science weapons can be added to the player’s arsenal alongside weapon and armor variants to use while solving the case. And increase your level cap by three and employ new perks and flaws to create your most unique character yet.
