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

[Update]: People Can Fly have released a lengthy gameplay preview for Outriders, and I'm afraid it's still looking a bit generic.

If you're in the mood for gunning down hordes of enemies and collecting equally large piles of loot, you might want to keep an eye on the newly announced Outriders. To put it simply, it is a co-op focused looter-shooter from the developers behind Bulletstorm, featuring four unique classes and plenty of different ways to customize your weapons and gear.

You can get a good idea of just what all of this looks like in terms of gameplay, as well as what the story is all about, through the two recently posted trailers. Have a gander, starting with the more story-focused reveal trailer:

I'll be honest here, I'm not exactly sure what to think about Outriders. On one hand, I have a great deal of respect for People Can Fly as I've really had a blast messing around with both Painkiller games and Bulletstorm. On the other hand, everything about Outriders, from the trailers to the actual gameplay, just screams generic looter-shooter to me. Still, the world could always use more co-op focused games, so as long as the gunplay feels solid I think Outriders will manage to carve itself a niche.

Whatever the case may be, Outriders will be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X at some point in the 2020 holiday season. You can learn more about it, as well as follow any future updates, over at the official website.
