Outriders is a new game from the creators of Borderlands and it brings in the coveted third person gameplay, while also mixing it with RPG elements. The game has a very interesting, albeit quite generic story where you are exploring a planet and you’re trying to figure out its secrets. That being said, right form the start you get to choose from one of the many classes and each one has their own abilities.
Every class plays differently, they have different attacks and specials, and even a dedicated skill tree. All of this adds up to offer extremely interesting, engaging experiences and you can easily customize some aspects too.
In addition, the gameplay is very immersive, and you have a variety of weapons like assault rifles, shotguns, you can even take cover. One thing to note about Outriders is that you can only regenerate health if you kill enemies. Some might even drop some health boosters too, which is quite good in its own right.
Within Outriders you will have a combination of monster and human enemies, and you will need to use all your skills in order to complete these tasks and really push the process to the next level. The RPG elements can be seen via leveling up, accessing skill trees, exploring hub areas, talking to NPCs and so on. The game also has a variety of side missions, and you can even access a dialog tree in order to choose the outcome of various conversations.
Overall, Outriders is a lot of fun, it has tons of content, and it does offer plenty of grind for those that want perfect loot. It’s interesting, it has a new concept, and you can also play with others in coop if you want. Don’t hesitate and give it a try today, it’s well worth your time!
