    For the RPG, story telling elements alone I’d recommend it… for being set in space it gets bonus points… for being just a well fleshed out world that is quite striking to look at and to inhabit it gets a hearty recommendation. If you like RPG’s then this is definitely worth checking out!

    The Outer Worlds: Peril On Gorgon is story DLC done right. It builds and expands on the existing world while providing a fun, meaty new narrative for fans to dig into. It doesn't address all of the issues players had with The Outer Worlds at launch, but that doesn't stop Peril On Gorgon from being a worthy addition to Obsidian's spacefaring RPG.

    The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon adds an engaging new story to The Outer Worlds. The new content, save for the new location to explore, doesn’t change up the formula too much but that’s absolutely fine. With a game like The Outer Worlds more of the same is a good thing. The new story content seamlessly weaves into the main story and feels like a natural extension of what was already there. The time to complete The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is enough where it feels like a worthwhile extension but doesn’t overstay its welcome and is the perfect reason to get back into The Outer Worlds.

    Peril on Gorgon is simply more Outer Worlds. It feels like a natural addition and fits right in with the rest of the game, while offering a slightly different tone in terms of story. The main quest is lengthy and replayable, but there’s not much in terms of side quests or gear.

    The first DLC therefore appears capable of offering fans of The Outer Worlds what they needed: a pleasant excuse to return to visit the system of Alcione.

    Peril on Gorgon is an entertainingly substantial chunk of The Outer Worlds content, with a handful of side-quests that will keep you poking around the planet until you’ve seen every inch. It may not push the envelope, but it’s good, clean, corporation-crushing fun. And it’s made me eager to see just what the The Outer Worlds’ next expansion will bring.

    Players who are looking for more The Outer Worlds will likely be happy with Peril on Gorgon, but people who were hoping for something as dramatic and deadly as Fallout: New Vegas' DLC offerings like Dead Money or Lonesome Road may be left wanting. It's a great addition to a quality title, but it's not different enough to justify the separation from the main game's story, and overall Peril on Gorgon feels more like a side quest which could have been easily included in the original version of The Outer Worlds rather than costing players an extra $14.99 USD.

    Great expansion of the base game. will please those who had few outer worlds. Satire on corporatism and a lot of loot

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Phenomenal experience, there aren't many logic based arguments as to why this game is bad or mediocre. It is at least an 8/10 but to me in comparison to this years subpar releases this is a 10. Expand

    The redeeming quality of this DLC is just one and thats the story, which is great, but there starts the trouble. Game itself wasnt by far richThe redeeming quality of this DLC is just one and thats the story, which is great, but there starts the trouble. Game itself wasnt by far rich enough to be fine with just story. No extra addition to current stuff which was pretty lacking by itself.

    In short: Worth playing, not worth big praise though.

    Lifeless DLC mechanics-wise and no new companions that doesn't add much to core game, plus you have to revert to middle game to play it, whichLifeless DLC mechanics-wise and no new companions that doesn't add much to core game, plus you have to revert to middle game to play it, which is backwards DLC design for a game that came out months ago.

    Looks like you have to repeat part of the original to play the expansion. What a poor decision. I for one dont want to replay a game to get to a DLC.
