Earlier this month, we informed you about the rumored release date for Outriders. And it appears that this rumor was legit. Square Enix announced yesterday that Outriders will release on February 2nd, 2021.
Outriders is a 1-3 player, drop-in-drop-out, co-op shooter, set in an original dark and desperate sci-fi universe. The game promises to be a dark modern third-person shooter with a strong story.
In Outriders, players will create their own Outrider and embark on a journey across a hostile planet. The game also promises to feature rich storytelling with a diverse world. Thus, players will leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal.
Additionally, Outriders aims to combine intense gunplay with violent powers, along with an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets.
In order to celebrate this announcement, Square Enix released a new trailer that you can find below.
