Square Enix Announces RPG Shooter Outriders for PS5 and Xbox Series X

Share this:

Square Enix and People Can Fly have revealed their latest online co-op RPG shooter title called “Outriders” and it will be launching on both current and next-gen consoles.

This announcement comes with a short two and half minute long trailer that gives us a better look at the title’s premise. The trailer states it features gameplay along with a mix of cutscenes, though from watching it, it’s hard to tell where the gameplay actually starts. We also don’t know what platform it is currently running in the trailer.

About the game:

OUTRIDERS is an RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe. As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across a hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal. Combining intense gunplay with violent powers, along with an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, OUTRIDERS offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter studios in the industry.

It doesn’t look half bad at all, though we won’t really know how it actually plays until we’ve seen some real gameplay.  We can expect to see that maybe later today as it has been revealed that a live stream will be hosted on Twitch at around 12:00 PM Pacific time. Expect to see both Game Director, Bartek Kmita and Lead Writer, Joshua Rubin discuss the game during the stream and hopefully debut some actual in-game footage.

Outriders is releasing this Holiday 2020 on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam).
