Outriders recently had its second exploratory broadcast that took us “Beyond the Frontier.” We thought that it would be a few weeks before we hear from People Can Fly again about their ambitious project. They decided to not stay quiet with a new announcement. We have not heard much from Google Stadia lately. Even so, it comes as no surprise that Outriders will hit the cloud-based platform as well. The only bad news for Stadia fans is that they will have to wait until next year to play it. The new trailer entitled “Journey Into the Unknown” seems appropriate as developers code for a console-free platform.
When Can I Get My Hands on Outriders?
In terms of release, the official word from Square Enix is that PC, PlayStation* and Xbox** will see a holiday 2020 release. Google Stadia will see a 2021 (as yet unannounced) release date. As always, R.A.G.E. Works will keep you updated and you can get more details from the official website. *PlayStation refers to both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 **Xbox refers to both Xbox One and Xbox Series X
Believe the Hype
Players have much to look forward to in this co-op RPG shooter. Created characters have brutal powers and the intense action promises to keep them engaged, Deep RPG mechanics provide for a play your way progression system. The story will be compelling, set in a dark sci-fi world that fans will enjoy. Players will become an Outrider, a fallen pioneer from a forgotten past, reborn with devastating powers.
