A new trailer for the upcoming RPG shoot-em-up Outriders is now here to introduce itself in style. While we have definitely seen the story of a ragtag band of scrappy survivors eking out a violent existence after some sort of apocalypse (be it earthbound or extraterrestrial in origin), we’re happy to forgive a familiar setup if the execution is solid; no one wants to be the next Anthem or Fallout 76. So it’s with an understandable bit of hesitation that we say we’re looking forward to seeing more from the devs over at People Can Fly.
As they describe it, Outriders is a 1-3 player co-op 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 the hostile planet. Promising rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, players will leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains, and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal. Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay. And you can get a glimpse of what’s in store in the new trailer below:
