Outriders co-op sci-fi shooter coming to Xbox Game Pass tomorrow
Fans of brutal and gory violence are writhing with joy. Riders, the ultra-violent sci-fi co-op shooter, is heading to Xbox Game Pass tomorrow for all subscribers to enjoy. This brutal game, led by developer People Can Fly and publisher Square Enix, is made for us blood-hungry shoot-em-up fans. Blast all your enemies in a game that’s still solid (but not without issues).
Riders works with a proven science fiction formula. Earth is dead, so humanity goes to a new planet in search of a new home. The new planet, Enoch, is home to dangerous storms and monsters that make life on the planet not so easy. As an Outrider, your mission was to bring glory and security to humanity, until you were sadly defeated in battle. 30 years later, and you wake up from cryosleep, with mysterious new powers.
The game is playable for up to three players, as you control different Outriders in an attempt to travel through this hostile and uninhabitable planet. Combine intense shooter play and fierce powers for some blissfully wild time, with hours of potential play. It’s no surprise that the shooter is as solid as it is, with the People Can Fly developers previously working on parts of Weaponry of war and Fortnite. The game is not only a combination of the developer’s best shooting game, but also a mixture of RPG and sci-fi games to create a hybrid genre.
There are four unique classes, each with a different potential playstyle. Customize your outrider with gear and weapons, and completely abandon humanity as you travel through Enoch. Better yet, you can do it with your friends. Riders even support cross play, so you’re not limited to your Xbox Game Pass comrades.
Riders releases on Xbox Game Pass on October 19 for all subscribers. If you have already progressed on the console version of the game (Xbox One or Xbox Series X / S), the game will also allow you to transfer your progress.
