Battling Immensely Powerful Bosses Is the Main Focus of the Latest OUTRIDERS Video Feature

With Outriders, People Can Fly will try to push the looter-shooter genre in a more RPG-focused direction, and just like any good role-playing game, the Square Enix–published title will put players' skills to test while battling huge bosses.

Thanks to the team at Game Informer, we can take a closer look at one of the bosses gamers will encounter during their adventures on the alien planet known as Enoch. Although the fight itself probably won't be anything groundbreaking, it seems that People Can Fly has plenty of good ideas to make it pretty exciting.

According to Game Informer's Leo Vader, every in-game boss has named moves displayed on the HUD, which will reportedly allow even the most inexperienced gamers to read any bad guy's intentions with ease — and while it will make the fight less complicated, it definitely won't make it any less complex. 

For example, Outriders basically tells the player what those dangerous monsters' next moves are — giving everyone a fair chance to put their avatar's abilities to a good use. For example, when a boss is charging his time-consuming attack, someone playing the Trickster class can use the so-called slow trap to allow the full team to deal extra damage to the creature. 

As a reminder, Outriders will be playable with two other players in the special cooperative mode. Without further ado, take a look at the aforementioned video feature and learn more about Outriders down below:


OUTRIDERS is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe. As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal. Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter developers in the industry – People Can Fly.

Outriders is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & PC (via Steam) Holiday 2020.
