The Outer Worlds will get story DLC in 2020

Obsidian’s return to big-scale – if not quite Fallout-scale – RPGs with The Outer Worlds has been well-received by pretty much everyone, and if you were sad to say goodbye at the end of your adventures, the studio has good news. DLC for The Outer Worlds is on the way, which will expand the game’s story sometime next year. “The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see,” the developers write on the official forums in light of the titles Game Awards nominations. “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.” Exactly what that DLC will include remains to be seen, but depending on your actions in-game, the conclusion is pretty definitive – so a likely path for story expansions might be putting a new planet in, accessible on the map before your final save. But that’s pure speculation, so we’ll have to wait for that “later date” to see what’s actually in store.

Two songs from the Hollow Knight: Silksong soundtrack are out now

The sequel to the beloved indie Metroidvania is journeying ever deeper into development, and while the Hollow Knight: Silksong release date is still set for a vague ‘when it’s ready,’ the developers at Team Cherry are still showing off some of the new features you can expect. Today, that includes a glimpse at some new enemies and two full songs off the expanding soundtrack. Do not take that to mean Silksong is coming quickly, though. “We’re still going, building this (very large) game,” the devs write. “Our desire to keep building, and building, and building sure hasn’t diminished, but our timelines have stretched a bit both to account for all that exciting new stuff and to tie up everything else.” For now, composer Christopher Larkin has released two new tracks from the upcoming game’s OST. You can give them a listen via Larkin’s Bandcamp. Lace is a pumping fight theme for one of your big rivals, and Bonebottom is lower-key track that’ll play in the game’s starting town. The original Hollow Knight had 26 music tracks, and 30 have already been composed for Silksong.
