Mobius Digital’s time-looping adventure game Outer Wilds — Polygon’s Game of the Year for 2019, by the way — is getting an expansion. It’s called Echoes of the Eye, and it’s coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), and Xbox One on Sept. 28.
Echoes of the Eye will “weave directly into the existing world and narrative” of Outer Wilds, said Mobius Digital creative director Alex Beachum. “If you played the game you might be wondering ‘How? And also why?’ And those are very good questions,” Beachum added.

Beachum calls Echoes of the Eye the “first and only expansion” for Outer Wilds. Watch its “willfully cryptic trailer” above.
The original Outer Wilds is coming to Nintendo Switch this holiday.
