Expansion Now Available
New York, NY – September 9, 2020 – Today, Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment announced The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon, the first narrative-led expansion for the critically acclaimed, darkly humorous sci-fi RPG, is now available for the PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro, across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, and Windows PC*. The expansion will be coming later to Nintendo Switch. The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is available individually or at a discount as part of The Outer Worlds Expansion Pass, which will also include The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos, the second expansion set to launch in the first half of calendar 2021. The Outer Worlds won numerous awards upon its release last year including “Best RPG” from IGN, “Best Role-Playing Game” from Game Informer, and “Game of The Year” from Destructoid.
Peril on Gorgon begins with a cryptic message beckoning you to investigate the Gorgon Asteroid. This remote scientific facility was once a beacon of crowning achievement in developing Adrena-Time, a modern marvel which improved health and worker productivity. However, the program was abruptly and inexplicably shut down. You must venture through deep canyons, defunct laboratories, and abandoned research facilities to piece together the clues that hold the truth behind one of the darkest secrets within the Spacer’s Choice corporation. What will you find on Gorgon?
“We wanted to dig into pulp noir to explore the seedier side of Halcyon’s corporations,” said Carrie Patel, Game Director at Obsidian Entertainment. “With Peril on Gorgon, players (and their favorite crew members!) can explore an exciting new location filled with intrigue and threats, and they can uncover dangerous secrets about Spacer’s Choice.”
Peril on Gorgon brings a host of additional content for players. It raises the level cap within the game to allow for more flexibility in skill customization and there are more perks and flaws which can provide rare bonuses or unique obstacles. The expansion also introduces three new science weapons and a variety of new armor sets. Peril on Gorgon expands on the award-winning formula of The Outer Worlds while giving players new reasons to revisit and further explore the Halcyon colony.
“The Outer Worlds is a deeply satisfying RPG, full of the player choice and a rich narrative audiences have come to expect from Obsidian, and Peril on Gorgon is a true to form expansion,” said Allen Murray, Vice President of Production at Private Division. “This expansion welcomes players to return to the Halcyon colony for even more of the dark humor, compelling story, and exciting adventures that they loved from the base game.”
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is available now for $14.99 digitally for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC through the Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store*. Peril on Gorgon is also available in a bundle for $24.99 which will include the second expansion Murder on Eridanos. Players on Xbox Game Pass will receive a 10% discount to purchase Peril on Gorgon. The expansion requires the base game in order to play. The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is rated M for mature by the ESRB.

AHOY! BANNER OF THE MAID'S FIRST DLC THE ORIENTAL PIRATE GETS A RELEASE DATE ON CONSOLES!
After the successful release of Banner of the Maid on Switch and PS4 last August 12th, developer Azure Flame Studio is proud to announce that Banner of the Maid's first DLC, The Oriental Pirate, will be released on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on September 15th. Meet Mu Zhiyun, an oriental pirate serving under Ching Shih who just arrived in Europe with a secret agenda. The Oriental Pirate is Banner of the Maid's first DLC and it will be available on the PS Store and the eShop for $4.99 / €4,99 / HK$35 (check the stores for your regional equivalence). You can watch The Oriental Pirate trailer below these lines.
Banner of the Maid is a mix of turn-based strategy and JRPG, set in an alternate French Revolution (late 18th to early 19th century) with fantasy elements and a unique anime art style. You play as the young officer Pauline Bonaparte, leading your troops to victory in turn-based dynamic battles – but also taking part in the complex political landscape of Paris, full of intrigues and conspiracies. But Pauline is more than just a brilliant officer – she is also a Maid, one of the fabled women with mysterious powers capable of turning the tide of a battle… A deep epic story full of twists, glory, and fantasy where the destiny of the Revolution lays in your hands.
PS4 keys for The Oriental Pirate are available, as well as review keys for Banner of the Maid (both PS4 and Switch versions)
In Banner of the Maid you will command the most iconic troops from the Revolution era in deep-turn based strategy combats with dynamic environments -- more than 30 different terrains, including cities, plains, snowy mountains, etc. with environmental changes like snow or fog which will force you to be constantly on your toes, adapting your strategy to every situation. Your generals, over 30 fascinating characters including historical figures like Desaix, Murat and Lannes among others, will all have different backgrounds and skills that can be trained and improved with experience– but you will have to talk to them to discover their stories, gain their trust and understand their hearts if you want them to reach their true potential. You will also take part in challenges and quests to gain political favor, funds to improve your weaponry and supplies – but be careful, for your actions may tip the balance of power in Paris…
After a successful release in China in May 2019, with a user approval rate of 89% on Steam, Banner of the Maid was released on Western markets fully localized to English last January on Steam and this summer on consoles.
