What Is Outriders?

Outriders is an upcoming third-person co-op RPG game developed by People Can Fly, and will be published by Square Enix.

Players will be able to customise their own characters and choose from four different classes that each have unique abilities that will change how you play the game. The various abilities range from being able to manipulate time, to the use of turrets and other large devices.

Many fans expressed their concern about Outriders looking extremely similar to live service games such as Destiny and The Division. However, the developers have assured fans that Outriders is a game that players will be able to “start and finish”, unlike the aforementioned games.
