Ever since the release of its extended demo last month, Outriders has been getting some serious buzz. The latest game from the developers at People Can Fly and Square Enix looks to be an excellent shooter, one that you can play alone or with friends in co-op. Coming soon, all Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get their turn.
Microsoft recently announced that the game will make its debut on the service the same day that it’s set to release on other platforms – April 1st! And no, it’s not a joke – and it won’t be a limited release.
The company noted in its statement, “Starting April 1, Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can jump into this true genre-hybrid from Square Enix, which combines brutal combat with deep RPG systems. Outriders is set in the distant future where players attempt to colonize a planet that they believe to be a new home for humanity. Turns out, the planet doesn’t want them there. Oops.
“A mysterious storm called the Anomaly burnt out all the tech that’s more advanced than a lightbulb, hyper-evolved the wildlife into ferocious monsters, and colonization efforts broke down into a bitter war of attrition for the last remaining resources available to humanity.”
Considering that Microsoft just added a bunch of Bethesda games to the service, this continues to push the tremendous value that Xbox Game Pass offers. And with E3 2021 around the corner, the company isn’t done yet.
Outriders will also be available on PlayStation 4 and PC, with enhancements on PlayStation 5 to boot. Check out the latest trailer below!
