Can you solve the murder without getting distracted by the musical trailer?… I imagine the answer is no

The expansion will release later this year on the Nintendo Switch™. The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is available individually or at a discount as part of The Outer Worlds Expansion Pass, which also includes The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon expansion for the complete narrative experience.
