For a long time now, playing a shooter means hiding behind cover. Unless you happen to be playing Doom or Serious Sam, hunkering down and popping up to fire bursts is the way many games have gone. But the developers of BULLETSTORM aren’t going to take Outriders that way.
The latest trailer from People Can Fly for Outriders is called Mantras of Survival. The mantras are pretty simple: be aggressive, use your powers and kill things to heal. Short cooldowns, flashy effects and fun are promised here as we see characters charging headlong into the melee, turning enemies into scrap and healing energy before mowing down anyone left.
The Mantras of Survival are: Cover’s for Cowards, Powers on Tap, Kill to Heal and Think Aggressive.
Outriders is planned to release on February 2 next year, and will be an RPG built without games-as-service in mind. Another trend that People Can Fly are bucking here.
