The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon Nintendo Switch Release Date Announced

The release date of The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon on the Nintendo Switch has been announced by Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment. Peril on Gorgon, the first of two expansions for The Outer Worlds, was originally released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 9, 2020 (check out our review on PC here) and is now finally making its way to the Switch on February 10, 2021.

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon will take players to the titular Gorgon Asteroid where they’re tasked to uncover a mystery that becomes bigger than what it initially presents itself to be. Here are some of the key features of Peril on Gorgon:

  • Intrigue and danger: Search an abandoned Spacer’s Choice facility and encounter a cast of new characters as you uncover the mystery behind the sudden cancellation of the Gorgon Project.
  • New locations: Explore the treacherous canyons of the Gorgon Asteroid and encounter enemies that have been warped by science.
  • More science weapons: Discover three outlandish new science weapons, including the P.E.T. (Pest Extermination Tool), an exciting new melee weapon that draws in enemies for close-range attacks.
  • Expanded character customization and lore: An increased level cap, additional perks and flaws, wholly new armor sets, and several variants for existing gear. Plus, dig into the story of the Gorgon Asteroid with new Portable Phonograph audio logs that reveal the salacious secrets of a scientific experiment gone wrong.

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon is scheduled for release on the Nintendo Switch on February 10, 2021.
