OUTRIDERS Out

OUTRIDERS is out for PC and consoles. The Windows edition of this action/RPG from People Can Fly and Square Enix is available on the Epic Games Store and Steam. The Official Launch Trailer takes a look, and you can still go hands on with the playable demo on Steam. This is what to expect:
OUTRIDERS is a hard-hitting RPG-Shooter set in an original dark sci-fi world. The last of Humanity slowly bleeds out in the trenches of the wild and unforgiving world of Enoch, and you awake as one of the last of the Outriders and an Altered, infused with incredible powers. Go on an epic journey across a hostile planet where everything has hyper-evolved to kill you. Choose from four different classes and use deep and flexible character customisation to build your own play style, collect twisted and beautiful guns and gear, and wield destructive and dominating powers. Stay aggressive, kill to heal and take the fight to your enemies in single player or with up to three players in co-op, as you explore the unknown across an epic story campaign.

Someone is throwing fits claiming that it installs kernal mode anti cheat drivers without permission. Posted proof.

Easy Anti-Cheat.

I don't know much about it. No idea how valid the concern is.

They don't need permission to install them, just to run them. And if you agree to the game's EULA that's exactly what you'll be doing. Don't like it? Uninstall and refund. Problem solved.

This is nothing new and this was also in the demo.

Yeah, they seem to be mainly upset about them doing it for single player and the not checking for permission part. However, its also coop game. Not terribly realistic to have separate installs for single player and coop.

Don't know if it's mentioned in the EULA.

I'm more annoyed by the performance issues that weren't apparent in the demo, and that the server's been shitting the bed today which means you get disconnected or can't even start to play your solo/co-op game...

I was gonna wait a bit for the launch issues to blow over, but 20% off from GMG swayed me.

Bullshit. 1.) It's not a cover shooter. The cover is made for the enemies more than the player. Cover is a last resort; a chance to take a breather on a chaotic battleground. In fact, fight from cover and you will die. You only regen health by killing enemies close range when you're the trickster, and the other classes have skills that have you want to be in the middle of the battle. Reviewers and ppl like you that say this is a cover shooter, are dead wrong.
2.) The loot is the best in any looter shooter in the last years, acknowledged by Youtubers with looter shooter creds like Echelon Gamer who has 2000+ hours in Division and Division 2. The better loot in this game change the way your skills work or improve them. Pretty much like much Diablo 3 gear does or other ARPGs. That makes this game pretty unique among its kind. It's more than just stats improving, and more like your entire gameplay depending on the gear you wear.

I thoroughly recommend this game. I have a bone to pick with every jaded gamer out there that doesn't recognize the pearl this game is. It does something different without reinventing the wheel.
This is the best shooter in years.

Feels like a chunky cross of Destiny 2 and Division 2, honestly. I enjoyed the demo with my 2 friends. The classes need a little tweaking, but it plays good and feels responsive.

Outride is a buggy mess compared to anthem or cyberpunk. I have no understanding how one game gets shit on while another one have every excuse in the world because it can run on low end systems.

It's a third-person shooter, but there's a big emphasis on using powerful magic or tech abilities according to what class you choose, very much like Mass Effect.

While #1 is correct (I can see how others see all the cover though and think what they do), no one can say what kind of legs this game has yet. SolidFPS was running end game content last night. But the point I'm getting at is, will people want to run all the characters? Will people want to run end game for a good while to make it feel worth their money? It all depends, most of the looter shooters are okay enough up until that point then sort of fall off. We'll see. Won't be long to know.

Unless it bombs to Avengers level, I'll play this on a bit of a sale or if it comes to PC Gamepass.

I really don't give a shit how quickly some no-lifers are able to rush through a game. Not after long since hearing "you can beat it in like 6/8/10 hours, waste of money lololol" umpteen times about titles I enjoyed for ten times as long because apparently I don't see it as a race or feel the childish need to win that competition against everyone else. Well, that and I actually like to explore these virtual worlds, find the side quests and secret locations without relying on a guide, etc.

Anyone streaming the game day one especially has extreme pressure to progress quickly because one of the best ways to get viewers is to show parts of the game that few, if any, others are showing yet... Speaking of which, loads of streamers had more than 24 hours' early access to this game, some even longer than that to play privately before broadcasting. So "last night" could be after anywhere from 20-40+ hours of playtime for that guy you named.

And besides, what 'endgame' is or means to your gameplay varies pretty wildly between genres or even individual games within them. I could name a whole bunch of action-RPGs where merely completing the story marks the true beginning of long-term, repeatable play.

Totally agree about the loot being pretty amazeballs. I already stumbled upon this really neat tactic to use a powerful incendiary ammo buff virtually forever. Instead of being on a timer like a lot of other games would do, the buff lasts for one magazine, until you reload or swap weapons. But I found a chest piece which mods one of my other abilities to restore 33% of my mag for every enemy it hits, which stacks nicely with some shoes which also mod it to hit an additional target (two instead of one). I'm currently intentionally using a weaker weapon just because it has a large mag, since most of the damage is based on my 'anomaly power,' i.e. skill damage. So everything is melting right now as long as I suppress that ingrained habit to reload after every encounter.

Thanks for the tip. I'm playing through with the Pyro also, and this sounds like a great build. I'll have to keep an eye out for that restore ammo mod, I don't think I've seen it yet.

I'm not too far into the game yet (just hit level 10), but my friends and I are thoroughly enjoying it.

Mack's review is a fucking abomination. One of his worst reviews in a very long time. I replied to his video, in fact:

I have two things to say to you, Mack: First, I think you'll change your mind regarding this game once you give the full release a proper chance. This is no cover-shooter, for example, yet you erred in thinking that it is. That cover? It isn't for you -- it's for the enemy. This game wants... no, needs you to get in the faces of enemies or your health won't regenerate. The only moments you duck for cover is when you're hurt bad and the battleground gets too crowded for you to survive on the offense.

But you should've known this before spewing this verdict, Mack. Which introduces my second point: I'm afraid you're making of yourself a meme -- the guy that slams his bells and complains about practically all AAA games. You'll keep a certain demographic of gamers as your loyal fans, but if you keep this up I'm afraid you'll lose subs/views. Maybe you're already seeing this happen, I don't know. I think you've changed, Mack. A year or maybe 2 ago, you were very critical and bell-slamming and I loved you for it, because there was nuance inside all of that; the complaining didn't have a deliberate feel to it.

I dunno... do with my words what you will. This is coming from a good place because you were my #1 channel I went to for my reviews not long ago. But then the praising of indies and raping of anything not indie became too common; too deliberate, feels like.
I want you to be my #1 channel again. Love ya.

Long story short, I was always a huge fan of Worth a Buy.. but he's becoming more and more of a bitter motherfucker and I think he should just stop touching AAA games altogether and go full indie. If I hear him complain one more time that "MY CONTROLS ARE TAKEN AWAY FROM ME *DING DING DING DING*" because of the cool cutscenes, I'm going nuts.

Long story shorter: Give the game another chance if you base your current opinion of it on Mack's review.

The Outriders demo made me really appreciate the excellent work that went into Division 2, especially Division 2's AI.

Maybe I'll check out Outriders again in a year or so, but pass for now. The mechanics need work, the maps need more..almost everything, I'm glad some of you guys are enjoying the loot because I found it pretty blah in the demo. There seems to be enough players though, that the developers won't just drop the game, and hopefully they work on it and improve it.

Good luck, but it made me reinstall Division 2.
