The Outer Worlds was one of our favorite games of 2019, and players who haven’t picked it up can now buy it with all the fixins’ with the Board-Approved Bundle. The Game of the Year-style edition packages the base came as well as the Expansion Pass, which allows access to the game’s two story expansions:
Peril on Gorgon
and the upcoming Murder on Eridanos.
The bundle, available today, runs for $79.99 and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One (playable on Xbox Series X/S). There’s no word of a Switch release as of yet. The Outer Worlds puts players in the role of a space traveler who awakens in the star-system of Halcyon after a century of cryosleep. Along the way they’ll take on a corrupt megacorporation while assembling a crew of colorful teammates, all while steering the story in a myriad of directions via choice-driven dialogue. The game is developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the maker of Fallout: New Vegas, which The Outer Worlds draws heavy inspiration from.
The Peril of Gorgon expansion released in September and centers on the investigation of a dubious productivity-improving drug. You can watch us take it for a spin in this

episode. The next expansion, Murder of Eridanos, doesn’t have a ton of information outside of being billed as “Halcyon Helen’s final (and finest!) adventure”. It’s scheduled to be released sometime in 2021, meaning those who purchase the Board-Approved Bundle get instant access once it arrives.
