The Outer Worlds is set to receive its story DLC in 2020. Developers announced that the DLC will drop in 2020, without announcing further details about the release date. Obsidian Entertainment announced the new DLC through a forum post, instead of releasing a trailer or a teaser.
Although there are no further details announced by the developers, it is worth noting that there is a DLC coming. Knowing that the game is actively being developed for further content would help players value the game more.
Developers' forum post goes like this, "The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot." Being nominated to The Game Awards must be important to the developers. Most importantly, it shows that both critiques and players are enjoying the game.
The post continues, “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.” Therefore, developers state that the date will be announced later.
The Outer Worlds released for PS4, Xbox One and PC in October. The game will also head to Nintendo Switch in 2020 and extend its reach. If you want to learn more about the game, you can watch its trailer above.
