During the fourth Outriders Broadcast, Square Enix and People Can Fly revealed that the upcoming RPG shooter will have post-campaign content for players looking for more challenging gameplay after beating the main scenario. Additionally, they gave fans a closer look at the previously announced Technomancer class.
The end-game content is called Expeditions, and is said to be extremely challenging. The content will not be recycled according to the video shown, and players will explore 14 brand new maps and take on incredibly powerful foes to earn new and rare loot. The combat is designed on purpose to be “brutal” and “is intended for battle-hardened Outriders who really want to get creative” with specialized character builds and modded weaponry.
“Expeditions expand on the story of the Outriders campaign and features the toughest challenges in the game. They’re meant to be played with a team of skilled and coordinated Outriders,” said Bartek Kmita, Creative Director of Outriders at People Can Fly. “Powerful equipment and efficient character builds, along with true skill and mastery over your class, are necessary to succeed and reach the highest levels of Expeditions.”
Spotlight Series: The Technomancer
The fourth and final class, Technomancer, utilizes their powers granted by the anomaly in unique and terrifying ways. They lean a bit into sniper rifles, allowing them to scan the battlefield and provide support to their teammates when needed by interrupting enemies, healing allies and summoning powerful weapons.
For those interested in watching the full Broadcast, the official Outriders Youtube channel has the video listed, which can be seen below.
Outriders is scheduled to release February 2, 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC (Steam).
