191

Outriders is a third-person sci-fi shooter mixed with elements from role-playing games. In the beginning of the game, players create their custom characters and choose from four classes, each of them has unique abilities that the players can utilize. The four classes include Trickster, which has the ability to manipulate time, the Pyromancer, which can manipulate fire, the Devastator, which can unleash seismic attacks, and the Technomancer. These special skills have a short cooldown time and can be combined with other skills for maximum effects. The game features a skill tree that allows players to unlock and upgrade their skills.

From the maker of Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly and publisher Square Enix.

    Looking forward to it. Hope its not another Anthem or Godfall..

    • It won't. It's not a "game as a sevice" unlike those two. So no need to worry about the lack of content and broken promises since it'll be a complete game with no planned content updates.

      • Am i right in saying this is more of a 'borderlands' than a destiny?
        Have they said about needing internet connection while playing?

        • Definitely more like Borderlands. I don't know if it's always online but the devs have said you can play it entirely solo.

          • @NightShift: Apparently is always online but yes its a complete game https://www.ign.com/articles/outriders-online-only-microtran...

          • @NightShift: Alright, sounds pretty good. I like destiny (at times), but really didnt want it to be close to that.

            @Ravensbane Damn that sucks to hear. I played a decent bit of Division 1 solo back years ago and got significant lag at times, which sucks a lot given i was playing literally solo story missions, so no matchmaking at all.
            Always online on a not actually online game is very sh*t in my opinion. Sure it prevents piracy, but that has literally already been proven multiple times as to barely affect sales, so preventing it is kinda moot.

  • How much is this demo usually?

    • Cost your 2 arms and time.

      • What are you claiming at? Suggesting that my arms are required as payment for this demo?

        • Arms/hands/palms/fingers to play the demo?

  • For anyone interested, the full version pre-order is on sale @ CDKeys for $54.49 - just purchased my copy

  • Video game demos have always been free. How is this a deal? Its more information sharing since the game looks good/hyped.
