[Update #2]: Outriders has now been unleashed alongside a free demo!

Developed by People Can Fly, the team behind Bulletstorm and Painkiller, Outriders will feature four unique classes and a fair few ways to customize your playstyle. Also, much like Destiny 2 from which it draws a great deal of inspiration, Outriders will be all about mowing down hordes of enemies and then rummaging through their oversized pockets for that sweet, sweet loot.

If you're wondering what this looks like in action, as well as what the moment-to-moment gameplay has to offer, you'll find what you seek through the recently posted preview. Have a looksie:

Personally, I'm still just as confused about Outriders as I was when People Can Fly first announced it. There just doesn't seem to be anything revolutionary or all that interesting to set Outriders from the rest of the looter-shooters. So while I have no doubt that it'll play well given the team behind it, I am somewhat worried it might instantly get overshadowed and fall by the wayside, purely because it lacks a strong identity.

Whether my concerns are justified or not, it'll certainly be interesting to follow Outriders as it slowly moves towards its 2020 holiday release date for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. You can keep an eye on Outriders yourself, as well as check out any future previews, over at the official website.
