Outriders Preview | Gaming on PC

Outriders might look like yet another generic sci-fi shooter, but there is a genuinely robust and entertaining RPG shooter hidden underneath that rusty cover.

I really liked the demo. It definitely had a better look and perfomance on my Series X than on X1X.

It feels a lot like Gears at first, until you get more into it. I like Gears, and thought Gears 5, was fantastic! The DLC Hive Busters, looks current gen! Definitely a lot going on. The same can be said about Outriders. The different classes, are what really sets Outriders apart. That and the story l, which I think is pretty compelling.

Console and PC Game Pass April 1st.😁

Indeed, it starts off like Gears, but once you get your powers it's a completely different game. I feel that Gears does cover shooting a lot better, so I'm glad it's not the main focus here. And yeah, Hivebusters is excellent, would be nice if there's more Gears 5 DLC planned, because I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Im not a fan of Gears , I did like the first game though but this game is like a crappy knock off of Gears

Man this game is super janky. People were hyping it up on here but it is low budget . It sort of plays like anthem without flying . Climbing a rock you load to a cut scene, open a door , loading lame . the graphics for the NPCs and your character look like crap . The shooting is ok but the game is mediocre . I deleted it and didn’t even want to play the entire demo . I won’t even bother playing it at all after that demo . Even if it was free I wouldn’t waste my time it’s not fun or well made

What did you play it on? On Series X I didn't have a lot of loading. It also looks great.

PS4 and xbone it might be janky on. But playing it on PC ultra and PS5, it runs and looks great. Some games are getting pushed out to older consoles that can run it, but don't look as great or have the best performance (Cyberpunk is one of them, runs fine on PS5 but crap on PS4). WIth PS5 / Series X hard to find at times, they did it for sales else they'd be holding them back till the user base got larger.

But if you can get one, the game runs great and looks great too. Coupled with repeatable side (and story - you can switch between story points in the main menu so you can refight bosses or such) missions, a lot of customization for gear and weapons (406 mods), able to change the firing type of your guns (AR can be changed from full auto, to single shot, to burst for example) and change around mods on gear / upgrade it, 46 legendary weapons and 95 legendary pieces of armor at launch, 15 world tier levels that up the difficulty and increase the rewards, 14 expeditions at end game that don't reuse maps and 15 seperate challenge tiers for expeditions, and cosmetics and such earned from playing the game (not cash shops). There's a lot of content at launch and it's not a 'games as service' piecemeal type barebones at launch crap.
