CG writes: Here we take a look at the Outriders gameplay from the PC version on Steam running at max settings in 4K. Is People Can Fly’s game any good and worth being excited for come release on April 1st?
Average shooter that copy stuff from other games but didn make it better. Right now destiny 2 beyond Light is much better.
How can you judge it as an "average shooter" when the game ain't even out yet? I think this game is going to be good, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, you think it is an average shooter copying from other games, millions will not.
Umm theres a rather lenghty demo to form an opinion. You can get a feel for the game. Its an average shooter. A cover shooter where....taking cover actually hinders you.
Like i said, an opinion on a demo, not a judgement on a game. The opinion i took away from the demo was it was enjoyable to play, and made me pre-order. What about the game do you and waverider not like? the cover works a lot like gears of war, so kind of came natural to me as a gears fan, looks like there are massive paths for different skill tree's, hit detection was on point, not sure why it is getting a bit of negativity. Only seemed to appear after the gamepass announcement personally. Edit : not only that, it seems like it has a good engaging storyline.
Cover system with major problems, story doesnt make any sense, graphics are last gen and very plastic, because of unreal engine, enemies pop up...it got huge motion blurr problems, but a friend told me that its better, bad lip sync, bad dialogues, servers problems, And demo is big enouth to see those kind of problems. For those who play Gears, this seem a poor version of that game.
I respect your opinion waverider, i personally did not experience them issues. Sure during cutscenes hair and clothes were going in odd directions, but not gamebreaking. I enjoyed the introduction of the story, as to why they were on the alien planet. I had no issues server side, i did not experience any disconnections or anything like that. It is a last-gen game so i would not expect the graphics to be next-gen to be fair, all the issues people like yourself experienced in the demo, can easily be fixed with future updates. What platform were you playing on? I was on Series X, so the issues you experienced could be platform related i dunno.
He's just jealous he has to pay for it. Next.
Even if it's a copy it's a new and fresh game. Destiny 2 has been out for so long that many people are sick and tired of grinding in the same game again and again. Also this is a TPS which makes the gameplay distinct from Destiny 2.
It felt to me like a Gears/Destiny/Mass Effect hybrid of sorts. I liked it.
Destiny 2 Beyond Light has the best FPS gameplay on consoles. They have had since the first Halo ever to iterate on this gameplay formula. To claim any game is deficient because the mechanics are subpar compared to Destiny 2 is something I disagree with. Destiny 2 has reward structure problems(imo), but its gameplay is always, ALWAYS on point. That doesn't mean I can't also enjoy Borderlands 3 or Outriders or Titanfall 2. One game being great does not reduce other games being great, and the near perfection of the Destiny 2 FPS gameplay is not a reason to complain about other games, imo. Can you not enjoy Sackboy: A Big Adventure because Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury simply exists?
"Destiny 2 Beyond Light has the best FPS gameplay on consoles." Nah, Doom has the best FPS gameplay on consoles, sorry.
Really liked what I’ve played with the demo during my 20+ hours with it. All the classes changes how you play and it’s just so damn rewarding and fun to have to play aggressive. If your hiding behind cover most of the time then you’re playing it wrong... And meaningful loot early in the game. Hallelujah! And the gear really changes how your abilities and thus play style is. It’s really good. And I’m really curious about the story. So I’m more then ready April 1st.
The only time i went in to cover is to recover health if it was low, other than that i was jumping around firing from the hip, hitting enemies with powers, it was great fun, all in 3 player co-op, so we were even combining the powers to kill the heavy hitters.
Loved the Demo, much more than Destiny
Very good 3rd person combat and classes that play very differently. Also nice to have an intriguing story to boot. I’m excited.
I can't wait to do multiple builds of characters, to see which one i prefer the most, even after completion, the replay-ability will be there to build a new character.
This game has a lot of potential. I really like the powers as you can get a similar "Bulletstorm" feeling from them. The game is a bit rough though. Could look better. Plays like a mixture of other games which isn't a bad thing. Keeping an eye on to see what PCF do to this based on Demo feedback.
It's janky. I enjoyed it enough but oof they got little time to try to smooth it out lol
Not really, they will just continue updating after launch, no rush.....
Yeah they will, that just means the game will be kinda meh at launch and worth it a year later down the line. I guess this is just the state of western games now.
Day one ps5 I'm down for co-op if anyone else is getting it
I feel like I'm in bizarre-o world, because the early previews of this game really didn't sell me, but I gave the demo a shot and played with my friends and absolutely had a great time and have been finding myself wanting to play more of this. I thought others would have had a similar experience, but I'm seeing a lot of people unimpressed with what they've played...
I played the demo and I found it very generic. Not the kind of game I would spend my time on.
I found it awful too. Felt like a game that started development on the PS360 machines, ported over to the PS4/X1 era, and now finally releases cross-gen with the 5/X. Terrible script, useless Bethesda-like dialogue tree, gears cover mechanics, and that old unreal engine plastic sheen on everything. Toss in server bugs and game crashes and I'm shocked so many people like it. Nothing is original and everything they copied from other games is worse not improved. After playing the demo I thought this would make an excellent GP title. And lo that's exactly what happened. FFS, Bulletstorm still looks better
Take it your not buying it then?
The game does feel somewhat familiar, like a funky cross somewhere between Mass Effect and Gears. But I'm actually pretty ok with that, and from what I played in the demo it was enjoyable. I'll be picking it up for my PS5.
Cover system like Gears Inventory system like Destiny Storyline/gunplay like Mass Effect 3 of my all time franchises, so this mash up of the 3 is going to keep me occupied for a good while!!!
I wasn't overly impressed enough to buy it but I understand the appeal it's a huge game that will continue to evolve over the coming years. It looks really nice controls well and feels good to play the bad for me was a feeling like I've experienced the same story far to frequently lately and the voice acting just sucked.
Haven't touched the demo yet
They tried... but they could have learned a lot more from Destiny and Destiny 2 good points.
My main issues was too many cut scenes that should have been playable and I don't care for the aiming. Again, those are just personal opinions, but that is pretty much what this place is all about.
