Outriders will be released on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Stadia next week. Outriders is developed by People Can Fly, the studio behind the iconic shooting game “Gears of War and Bullet Storm”. It is an RPG shooting game whose main purpose is to play as a cooperative game. Players can cooperate with up to three players for story-driven campaigns, or they can play in a single player mode. Read on to learn everything you need to know about Outriders-from the release date and gameplay to their prices and available platforms.
External release date
Outriders will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Stadia on April 1.
As revealed in the game trailer, Outriders are located in the alien world of Enoch. While trying to colonize Enoch, an expedition team began a mission to find a mysterious signal that could help save mankind. But when the team was hit by a huge energy storm called “anomalies”, things changed. Those trapped in the storm-humans and Enochian residents-have been given certain special abilities.
When Enoch’s aliens became giants with hostile powers, humans gained the ability to manipulate elements such as time and firepower. Players can control these super-powered people as they try to survive on dangerous and unpredictable planets. When you start the game, you can create a custom character and choose from the following four categories: Destroyer, Gunpowder, Technician, and Liar-each category has its own set of special abilities and specialized skill trees.
The Destroyer is described as a “biological sledgehammer” in the trailer. Vandals are deadly in close encounters, and can use pure brute force to eliminate groups of bad guys. As the name implies, the blaze gun can control firepower and can reduce the serious damage of medium-range weapons. Technomancer can manipulate technology to your advantage, and is also equipped with a powerful sniper rifle that can take away targets from a distance. Trickster has the ability to manipulate time and space and is designed for players who like skilled melee combat.
When it was officially announced at the 2019 E3 conference, Outriders were criticized for being too similar to live service movies such as Destiny (Review) and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Outriders creative director Bartosz Kmita bluntly denied this comparison in an interview with American Player, and said that Outriders will be a story-driven experience.
“Outriders is not a game as a service, so we didn’t even think about it… We want to have a game that you can start and finish. Game as a service divides the content into multiple parts, but we don’t want to do that.” Kmita said . Even in the “FAQ” section on Outriders’ official website, the game has been strictly recommended as a “story-driven RPG shooting game.”
The FAQ section also shows that Outriders does not allow players to compete with other players. “PvP questions have been asked a lot, but from the earliest concept, Outriders was designed as a PvE game. We are committed to creating the best single player and cooperative RPG shooting game.”
The transcendencer will also support crossover competitions. This means you can “play Outriders with any friend on any other platform” according to the “FAQ” page.
“Outriders” will have two versions: “Outriders Day One Edition” and “Outriders Digital Standard”. There is no difference between the two-except that the first day variant is a physical copy of the game, and the digital standard is just a downloadable version of the game on the PlayStation Store.
After booking the game, customers will have access to the Hell Ranger content pack, which includes Hell Ranger equipment (for male and female characters), Hell Ranger Arsenal including 11 unique guns, Hell Ranger truck modifications and decals.
Customers on PlayStation can purchase the game through Rs. US$3,999 / US$59.99, available for purchase through the PlayStation Store. At the time of writing, the online store only lists the PS5 version of the game. PS4 variants (day one version) are still available through Amazon.
Xbox users can purchase games with Rs. $3999 / $59.99 (via Microsoft Store), applicable to the previous and next generation consoles. Outriders will support next-generation upgrades on PlayStation and Xbox without paying additional fees. Starting from April 1 (the release date of the game), Outriders will also be available on Xbox Game Pass.
PC gamers can get the title of the game on Rs through Steam. 2,999 / $59.99, can be purchased through the Epic Games Store, the price is Rs. 2,980. It should be noted that Outriders will not have micro-transaction capabilities and is a complete experience out of the box.
