Good news for Xbox Game Pass subscribers! Xbox announced today that the upcoming Outriders video game will be available on the service starting April 1st, the game’s release date. The title will be available on console and Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming.
The Outriders video game is the high-intensity RPG shooter from People Can Fly, the developers of Gears of War: Judgment and Bulletstorm, and Square Enix External Studios, the minds behind Just Cause and Sleeping Dogs. It is set in the distant future where players attempt to colonize a planet that they believe to be a new home for humanity.
Turns out, the planet doesn’t want them there. A mysterious storm called the Anomaly burnt out all the tech that’s more advanced than a lightbulb, hyper-evolved the wildlife into ferocious monsters, and colonization efforts broke down into a bitter war of attrition for the last remaining resources available to humanity.
You are an Outrider, re-awoken from cryostasis 30 years after the first landing on Enoch — emerging as an Altered — a being with access to powerful skills and healing abilities. Create and customize your own Outrider, then use their devastating array of abilities to annihilate your enemy as you embark on the journey to discover the source of a mysterious signal on a dangerous and untamed world.
You can play single-player or co-op with up to two friends as you combine skill and speed in a frenetic attempt to survive a savage future in this aggressive third-person perspective RPG-Shooter. The game is fully cross-play.
The demo is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as Steam and GeForce Now on PC.
Outriders is a 1-3 player 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 the 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 desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal.
Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter developers in the industry – People Can Fly.
Outriders will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam, Epic Store and GeForce Now on PC, and Google Stadia on April 1, 2021.
