Ever since it was revealed midway through 2019, fans have eagerly waiting to see more, especially gameplay for the new title from Square Enix called ‘Outriders’. Today a brand new ‘Gameplay Reveal’ trailer dropped and….well…..it lacks actual gameplay, just a world and story setting reveal and after watching it, I am left thinking that it is just a Destiny clone with a metal soundtrack?!?
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.
The OUTRIDERS Reveal Stream will feature Game Director, Bartek Kmita; Lead Writer, Joshua Rubin; and host, Malik Forte and is set to debut Thursday, February 13th at 12:00pm Pacific Time. Watch the OUTRIDERS Reveal Stream at www.twitch.tv/squareenix.
“It’s incredibly exciting to finally reveal what we have been working on for the last four years,” said Bartek Kmita, Game Director at People Can Fly. “Outriders is our first game since leaving Epic Games, and has grown from an idea of the game we always wanted to make, to the most ambitious project People Can Fly has ever undertaken.”
Leave Humanity Behind. Releasing Holiday 2020 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
Yeah I am really not convinced by this, it looks far too similar to the foundation of Destiny, strange cosmic being giving special powers to people in order to fight some evil as well as standard bad guys and monsters. This gameplay reveal was lacking actual gameplay, just a very nice looking pre-rendered trailer giving a hint at what the story and gameplay should look like but without showing any of it at all in action within the game.
One to watch but this trailer gave me more doubts than goosebumps, will see what the livestream can show on Thursday!
