In the expansion, players will head off to Eridanos and solve a murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. Halycon Helen, a famous spokesperson, has wound up dead ahead of the launch of the brand-new Spectrum Brown Vodka. To assist in the detective work, players are given a Discrepancy Amplifier, a tool that highlights otherwise unseen hints.

Eridanos is a floating world that offers a wide variety of environments, such as the Grand Colonial Hotel and Rizzo’s Groves. However, players must be wary of the threat of every person on the floating world. The expansion will also introduce three new science weapons and armor variants as well as an increased level cap that allows for more abilities and skills than ever before.

Besides the launch of the expansion on the Nintendo Switch, from 8th September, players will have access to Patch 1.5. Patch 1.5 addresses key bugs and issues including lip syncing on quest NPCs, tooltips, stability and backend improvements, Captain Irion’s animation and more. The patch will only become available from 8th September.
