Game company Square Enix just released the first gameplay trailer for upcoming RPG-shooter Outriders.
The game is developed by game studio People Can Fly, the ones behind Gears of War: Judgment and Bulletstorm, and Square Enix External Studios, the ones behind Sleeping Dogs and 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 an immersive new environment and more.
Set in an all-new, dark sci-fi world, OUTRIDERS is a true 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 allow for a wide variety of creative class builds, and evolve People Can Fly’s trademark over-the-top, skill-based gameplay to create a brutal RPG-shooter experience.
People Can Fly Creative Director Bartek Kmita has this to say:
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 RPG’s. 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.
Outriders will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC this coming holidays 2020.
