 Developer Obsidian has revealed that The Outer Worlds is going to get new story DLC next year, in 2020.

In a post on the game’s official forum (via GamesRadar+), Obsidian’s social media manager, Shyla, made the announcement, in light of the game receiving multiple nominations at The Game Awards. 

“We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds,” said Shyla. “It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance—Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards.”

“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.”

It isn’t clear what form this will take, and no further detail was provided on this story DLC; we will have to wait until next year to find out. In the meantime, read Imogen’s review—she liked it a lot.
