We all had a taste of Outriders with the recent demo, so I’m delighted to report that Outriders will be available on Console and Android phones and tablets through Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) with Xbox Game Pass from day one!
Starting April 1 (no April Fool’s joke, I assure you), Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can embark on this true Square Enix genre hybrid, which combines brutal combat. with deep RPG systems. Outriders takes place in the distant future where players attempt to colonize a planet they believe to be a new home for humanity. It turns out the planet doesn’t want them out there. Oops. A mysterious storm called the Anomaly burned out all technology more advanced than a light bulb, hyper-evolved wildlife into ferocious monsters, and the colonization efforts turned into a bitter war of attrition for the last remaining resources available to humanity. .
You are an Outrider, awakened from cryostasis 30 years after first landing on Enoch – emerging as Altered – a being with access to powerful healing skills and abilities. And now you can use these skills on the ever-raging battlefield! Create and customize your own Outrider, then use their devastating array of abilities to obliterate your foe as you embark on the journey to uncover the source of a mysterious signal about a dangerous and untamed world.
You can play solo or co-op with up to two friends while combining skill and speed in a frenzied attempt to survive a wild future in this aggressive third-person RPG-Shooter. And don’t forget that the game is all crossover – explore Enoch with one of your friends on any other platform!
See you on Enoch, Outriders!
