Square Enix has debuted new gameplay footage from Outriders, the upcoming RPG-Shooter from People Can Fly (Gears of War: Judgment, Bulletstorm) and Square Enix External Studios (Sleeping Dogs, Just Cause).
Seen through the lens of drop-in co-op, the First City gameplay reveals never-before-seen Pyromancer powers, brand-new, hyper-evolved creatures, information on the Outriders World Tier system, a look at the environment, and more. Set in an all-new, dark sci-fi world, Outriders is a genre hybrid that combines the depth and story of an RPG and the intensity of third-person shooter combat with awe-inspiring powers. Deep character progression and itemization allows for a wide variety of creative class builds.
“We are making the game we always wanted to play. The team at PCF are all gamers and we love shooters. Shooters are in our DNA and we have been making them for decades. At the same time, we also love RPGs,” said Bartek Kmita, Creative Director of Outriders at People Can Fly. “We always wanted to play a deep RPG with an epic story and the flexibility to create lots of interesting character builds, but we also wanted a skill-based, challenging, and intense real-time combat system in our RPG. When the opportunity to create it ourselves came along, it was like a dream come true.”
The Outriders First City gameplay video is just one of the segments in the Outriders Broadcast, a new monthly show that will dive deep into the various features of the world of Outriders.
The game will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC in Holiday 2020.
