It's almost Valentine's Day, and you know what that means: time to beat up monsters in space. For love. Or maybe just for new, shiny armour.

The Outer Worlds, which came to the Nintendo Switch last summer, is getting its first of two narrative expansions: Peril on Gorgon. The story begins with a message summoning you to the Gorgon Asteroid, where an abandoned research station holds some kind of secret.

Peril on Gorgon adds a new story mission to the game, alongside an increased level cap, new weapons and armour, additional perks and flaws, and a cast of characters to befriend or annoy (or kill) at your leisure.

You can grab the expansion on the Switch eShop, where it costs £11.99 individually or £19.99 if you buy the Expansion Pass bundle.
