'Outriders' (ALL) Shows Off New Powers, Environments and Features - Screens & Trailer

Outriders is a 1-3 player, drop-in-drop-out, 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 a hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal.

In the 30 years that have passed since the Human colonists’ arrival, the once peaceful wildlife and environments of Enoch have hyper-evolved from exposure to the Anomaly, turning nearly every living creature into something designed to kill.

The untamed frontiers of Enoch are filled with dangers that will test the Outriders fortitude to the limit.


Entitled “Built for the Core,” the inaugural Outriders Broadcast features brand-new gameplay, areas, never-before-seen powers, character class deep dives, development updates, and more.

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.

“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,” 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 dark and desperate world of Outriders. Discover all-new gameplay, environments, character class deep dives, and updates from the team.

Combining intense gunplay with violent powers, along with an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets and a compelling, personal story, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter studios in the industry.

Outriders will release on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC in Holiday 2020.
