The Outer Worlds Story DLC Coming Next Year

Warm up that Spacer's Choice helmet.


The Outer Worlds is a wide-open adventure game that can last dozens of hours if you fully plumb its depths and sidequests, but even more is coming in 2020. Obsidian has announced that story DLC will be coming next year, though the studio didn't say much more than that.

In a brief note on the Obisidian forums, social media manager Shyla Schofield thanked the team behind the game and noted the honor of receiving four nominations at The Game Awards. Though the post was made after Outer Worlds went home empty-handed, she said "even just being nominated means a lot." Then the message segued into the upcoming content.

"However, the journey isn't over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year!" it reads. "Details will be made available at a later date."

The note didn't mention platforms, but presumably it will come to every platform simultaneously: PC, PS4, Xbox One, and possibly Nintendo Switch, though release timing on that platform port is still unannounced.

The Outer Worlds is one of GameSpot's nominees for the Best Games of 2019. You can read about all of the nominees as you wait for our Game of the Year winner to be named on December 17. Plus check out our Best of Games 2019 hub for a lot more reflection on the year that was.
