Outriders is a third-person RPG shooter from People Can Fly and Square Enix. The game takes place in a hostile planet of Enoch where the titular Outriders – hardened mercenaries and explorers – search for a mysterious signal that might hold the key to humanity’s survival.
Outriders is said to combine brutal gunplay with an extensive RPG system. Players create their Outrider from scratch and pick one of the four classes that come with unique supernatural abilities such as manipulation of fire or time. The weapons too can be crafted and customized with mods. Up to four players can join in a drop-in co-op, and the entire story campaign can also be tackled solo.
The standard edition of Outriders is priced at the usual $59.99, but pre-orders receive a free upgrade to Deluxe Edition, which presumably will cost extra after launch. The Deluxe Edition comes with the Hell’s Rangers Content Pack that includes:
- The Hell’s Rangers Male and Female Gear Sets
- The Hell’s Rangers Arsenal of 11 unique Guns
- The Hell’s Rangers Truck Mods and Decals
Outriders is scheduled to launch Holiday 2020 on current and next-gen consoles as well as PC via Steam.
