Outriders is a sci-fi co-op shooter with elemental superpowers arriving to all the platforms in 2020


Publisher Square-Enix and developer People Can Fly (who many will remember for their work on shooters like Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment) are crafting another co-op cover shooter. This one, however, appears to blend action gunplay with over-the-top elemental superpowered abilities. Say hello to Outriders, a new game due at the end of this year for all platforms. As in, every single one, including the PS5 and Xbox Series X as well as PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

In Outriders, players take control of one of three classes — Trickster, Pyromancer, and Devastator — as they explore the planet of Enoch as well as the strange powers granted to them by a force known as the anomaly. These powers include the ability to summon flame, cover themselves in earth, freeze foes, or teleport and alter time. Outriders features drop-in drop-out co-op gameplay, meaning three people can hop in and wreck things together anytime they want.

An upcoming feature will grant a look at how these three classes operate as well as its cover-based shooting and its RPG elements, but if you can’t wait for any of that, there’s a sizzle trailer as well as a livestream from the devs that aired on YouTube this past Thursday which we’ve embedded below.

Does it say 3 player coop in the video? But either way yea.. not really an mmo anyways.


Err…it ‘looks’ fantastic. But it doesn’t look like there’s an awful lot of options for pink hued items to equip in this game. :(

This style of helmet is so overdone…
If you’re going to make an Anthwarframefacetiny clone, at least try to look original.


Or, could just go over to the Angry Joe Show and watch a three person play through. :)

It does look interesting.


Looks great – especially considering there is exactly one decent third-person shooter and it has zero to none end-game (Anthem). But it’s almost year away – before delay announcements started kicking in.

the game looks nice but…
there is nothing new about the game, the system look like destiny\TD2
and its just coop so maybe more belong to “not so massively”

if im going to try it ? only if the story is good!
but not seeing myself keeping playing for better gear after the story, already bought TD2 expansion to keep me playing.

Wow another generic looter shooter yay!


Looks like a post apocalyptic ‘The Division’. Hope it’s good.
