Outriders Worldslayer review: Another bumpy ride on Enoch

Outriders is the kind of game that has you ripping off your headset and swearing at the screen, saltier than a bag of pretzels, only to stoically sit back down, dry your tears and wade back into the fray about 10 seconds later. It feels so perfectly pitched to tingle the anxious part of your lizard brain that secretes angry dopamine that you’re constantly dancing on the knife edge of temple-bursting rage and unblinking exhilaration. Sometimes it’s incredibly aggravating, sometimes you can’t believe where the time’s gone because you’re so engrossed. This is Outriders’ greatest strength and weakness and it’s…

Outriders is out now, with some stuttering launch issues on PC

I find it difficult to get excited about beefcakes hiding behind low walls inside grey metal warehouses, because that’s what I spent the mid-noughties doing. (And in games.) The looter shooter Outriders has pedigree behind it however, due to developers People Can Fly, and folks who played the game’s demo reported that it was dumb, satisfying fun. It’s out today and I’m tempted to give it a go – although reports of performance issues on PC will probably cause me to hold off for now. Read more

What’s more, once you’ve found a unique gun, you can dismantle it for parts and craft its mod…

The best Outriders tips that are actually helpful

Outriders is one of those games that can be easy to overlook. It’s another shooter RPG with numbers flying out of enemies as you shoot them, a big skill tree with passive boosts, and flashy active abilities – all in service of chasing ever powerful loot.We’ve done this song and dance before. Though Outriders is without question one of those, it also hides many systems and mechanics that it doesn’t always do a good job of explaining.To help you navigate People Can Fly’s deceptively deep game, we thought we’d highlight some of the more nuanced features in Outriders, and explain…
