If you've enjoyed Obsdian Entertainment's newest RPG romp The Outer Worlds, there's some good news: they've just recently announced that the first bit of The Outer Worlds DLC will be arriving next year.

The announcement of the forthcoming DLC was shared by the company's social media manager in a post on the game's official forums.

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.

That same post is where Obsidian thanked fans for voting for them in The Game Awards. The Outer Worlds ultimately secured nominations for Best Narrative, Best Performance (for Ashly Burch), Best RPG, and Game of the Year. Regrettably, they were unable to secure a win as they had some pretty stiff competition across all categories as other excellent games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the Resident Evil 2 remake, Death Stranding, and many others were nominated.

What Will The Outer Worlds DLC Be About?

While the announcement of this DLC is certainly a welcome announcement to fans who want more from the game, the first question that comes to mind is exactly what the DLC will be about.

Like many RPGs from Obsidian Entertainment, The Outer Worlds boasts multiple endings; it's entirely possible that we'll have some sort of content created for the post-game so that players can bask in the glow of their rewarding victory over countless challenges.

However, it's just as likely that they'll do something else they've done before: create new side quest areas that are split off from the main story. Considering that you have a spaceship which can fly to other planets, it probably wouldn't be too hard to pull something like this off. In any case, we'll be hearing more about this upcoming DLC at a later date.
