And finally this week Square Enix also announced a brand new game from People Can Fly, the makers of Bulletstorm and Gears of War Judgment.

This new game is called Outriders and is coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X by the end of 2020.

Here is the official blurb on Outriders: “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.”
