People Can Fly revealed a lot of information about their next RPG cooperative role-playing game, Outriders, in a live broadcast held yesterday (via Polygon).
Outriders It is said to be "science fiction and savagery", but I think it seems Destination Satisfies Massive effect. Its premise is that humanity left Earth in the search for a new home and a hopeful future. They found Enoch, and everything was great! For a moment, before an anomaly explodes and gives the player character strange powers different from everything they have seen. It's funny how it happens to you, and not to anyone else. Anyway, the Outrider wakes up after 31 years in cryo, and the strange signal emanating from the anomaly continues to beat. Following the trail, the player will discover what is in the heart of Enoch, exploiting the bad guys and looking good doing it along the way.
There are three classes in Outriders. The Pyromancers explain themselves: they summon fire from their bodies and singe, toast and incinerate the opposition. Tricksters are cunning: they blur the laws of time and space to flank and surprise the enemy. And, the Devastators are a force to consider: fighting enemies with a power that simply exceeds Richter's scale.
The skills and abilities of Pyromancer, Trickster and Devastator are unlocked as the player advances in the game. This does not mean that Enoch will become a walk in the park, as it will create enemies with anomaly powers that adapt to their World Tier system. World levels make the game more difficult, but can be raised or lowered depending on what the player wants from the experience. Of course, you can survive with a little help from your friends, since the game is designed to be a cooperative entry and exit game for up to three players. People Can Fly explains in detail what all this means and more in the set of videos found below.
Outriders It will arrive on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year.
