The Outer Worlds, the third-person action roleplaying game released by Obsidian in October, is being expanded next year through dedicated story DLC. The developer announced as much in a post published on the official forum.
Greetings employees of Halcyon,
We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds. It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance - Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards.
To all of those who voted for us in The Game Awards, you are all fantastic and we are so grateful for your support. The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot. 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.
Now we would like to allow our game directors to share a message with you all:
We just wanted to personally thank our team for doing a wonderful job and our fans for their tremendous support.
And Tim would like to say what an honor it was to work with me. – Leonard
Whatever, Leonard. Now that we’ve finished, I expect that certain photographs will be destroyed, as per our agreement. – Tim
That's definitely good news for anyone who liked The Outer Worlds and wants more out of the game. Additionally, Obsidian has published Patch 1.2 this week, fixing a heap of bugs and adding a few options like Chromatic Aberration, Controller Aiming Sensitivity, Head Bobbing and even Field of View (this last one on consoles, as it was already available on PC). You may find the entire patch notes here.
