People Can Fly has been incredibly quiet since releasing Gears of War: Judgement in 2013. They’ve gone pretty much an entire generation without releasing a new game but now, they’re ready to lift the curtain on their new co-op RPG Outriders.
After a cinematic trailer last summer, People Can Fly has finally shown off a proper gameplay trailer that gives us a better idea of what the game is. Outriders places you in the shoes of a soldier who is part of a movement to colonize a planet known as Enoch. After a catastrophic event, the once ideal new home for humans is ruined and your character inherits special powers.
Any semblance of society crumbles in on itself, turning to chaos and destruction. Your goal is to survive the turmoil of Enoch and hopefully, make it a safe, inhabitable place for humans to live on. You can view the trailer below.
The Outriders trailer also confirms that the game will be coming to both next-gen consoles: Xbox Series X and PS5. This is one of the few confirmed games for the consoles and part of an even smaller few confirmed for the launch window of the consoles.
We got to play Outriders last week at a preview event in Los Angeles. We’ll have impressions, extended gameplay footage, and interviews on Thursday, February 13th so come back to GameZone for all the deets.
Outriders is scheduled for release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and PC this holiday season.
