Outriders’ Gameplay Has Me Intrigued
Outriders seems to have a very cool sci-fi story and game mechanic built on top of The Division cover mechanic, along with World Tiers. There will be cross-play, so whichever seller offers the most affordable version will get my business.
Even though the developers suggest an aggressive gameplay in showcase videos, their own gameplay is more strategic and circumspect. They take a lot of cover in their gameplay.
Of the four classes, I am most interested in the Pyromancer and Technomancer. Maybe the Trickster as well. I am going to avoid playing the Devastator because I don’t want to play all four classes and I am also weary of the time commitment of levelling up all characters, especially after updates and level cap increases.
With my luck, the Devastator may turn out to be the best class…But, we’ll see.
The game has been delayed several times, so the latest release date is April 1, 2021. After the trash-bacle debut of Cyberpunk 2077, a game I still want to play, I hope the Outriders delays are to fix bugs etc.
