Developed by People Can Fly (Bulletstorm, Fortnite) and published by Square-Enix, Outriders takes players on an epic journey to the dark planet of Enoch in order to investigate a mysterious signal that conceals a galaxy-spanning evil. As one of the titular band of Outriders, players will load up, suit up and shoot up as they carve their way through the First City and surrounding locales, laying waste to the monstrous legions that have scarred the world.
At its core, Outriders is a third-person looter shooter for one to three players where the only thing more pressing than uncovering more of the story, is destroying your enemies with increasingly powerful weapons and abilities so you can loot their gear. With four completely different classes to choose from and a range of modifiable guns, equipment and world tiers that allow you to tailor the challenge and rewards to your liking, Outriders is set to be the next evolution of the looter shooter formula. Unlike other examples of the genre however, Outriders is not a live service game – the complete experience will be available from day one with no microtransactions.
