Looking to get into the new RPG shooter? Here are a few videos to whet your appetite.

What is Outriders about?

Outriders is a co-op shooter set in a sci-fi universe. Take a journey around the hostile planet of Enoch, tracing down a mysterious signal from First City and beyond. The game hugely expansive, allowing players to pour countless hours into it.

It has elements of RPGs too, with players being able to build characters and classes to suit their playstyle. If you don’t have any friends to play with, you can still run around solo and the game won’t drastically change.

Four playable classes: Devastator, Pyromancer, Technomancer, Trickster

Players can choose one of the four classes when they start a new character. Each class has a different set of skills, starting with one, and leveling up more along the way. A maximum of three can be equipped at one time, however.

  • Devastator: A close-range class that is designed to take damage and lead from the front.
  • Pyromancer: A mid-range class that can turn up the heat on the battlefield.
  • Technomancer: A long-range support class that can heal allies.
  • Trickster: A close-range, assassin-style class that can bend space and time.

With six character selection slots, be sure to try out each one to find your favorite.
