Sling bullets and superpowers alike in a cross-gen RPG shooter
The ambitious Outriders looks to mix co-op shooters with RPGs
Very little was known about Outriders, an ambitious-looking RPG co-op from People Can Fly and Square Enix, until its recent launch trailer. Set on a world called Enoch, humanity has attempted to colonise the world, but unleashed something terrible in the process. Naturally, a trio of heroes combine superpowers with sci-fi weaponry to fight humanity’s corner.
Described as a “co-op RPG shooter for a new generation”, the combination of gameplay styles here is sure to be quite unique. Any RPG property from Square Enix (the creators of the incredible Final Fantasy series) is sure to at least turn heads, but how the co-op, action-orientated gameplay is going to work remains a mystery.
Regardless, although it contains no gameplay footage, the launch trailer certainly looks intense. It’s expected on both PS4 and PS5, but its “Holiday 2020” release date seems to cement its status as a PS5 launch title.
