Now Playing: 23 Minutes From The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos DLC

It's going to be a big week for The Outer Worlds, as the game's Murder on Eridanos expansion is coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on March 17. This endgame-focused expansion centers around a classic murder-mystery on the planet Eridanos, with your character having to solve a complex and strange "whodunit" to uncover who assassinated the spokesperson for a new brand of space vodka.
