To get started in Murder on Eridanos, the latest DLC for The Outer Worlds, users need to progress past Monarch in the main storyline. After leaving the moon behind, players will need to head aboard The Unreliable, their ship and the game’s main hub. Once onboard, approach the bridge and wait for your ship to mention an aetherwave broadcast and then interact with the ship’s A.I. and choose to watch it.

During the broadcast, the quest will reveal itself and you’ll soon have the option to head to Eridanos, as well as the quest The Last Role of Halcyon Helen in your Journal. This quest is your main starting point for the DLC storyline, so check it often for additional information and updates.

To get your investigation started, head to Eridanos via the ship’s navigation terminal. This can be found next to the ship’s A.I. panel.
