New Outriders Campaign Details Reveal a 'Massive Experience'

Rollin' Out

New Outriders campaign details have been revealed in a new video from the developers today and there's a lot to unpack. If you're looking for a massive new game to sink your teeth into, it looks like this upcoming experience from People Can Fly and Square Enix might just fit the bill.

Check out the Outrider Journey and Structure video to learn about what's to come:

 
 

The developers say that Outriders will be using a "hub and spoke" structure. Busy populated areas like cities will serve as the "hub" and decently-sized free-roam areas and combat arenas will serve as the "spokes."

Your weapon will be holstered in a hub; these peaceful towns will let you shop, learn new information and rumors, and pick up the trail of the game's many side quests. Hubs will also serve as the place where you can keep an eye on your truck and its crew, a mobile base that will grow as you progress in the game. In short: the truck is a "moving RPG village."

Outriders Campaign Details 'Meaningful' Side Quests

One of the more interesting Outriders campaign details is the side quest structure. As with most RPGs, players might occasionally stray off of the beaten path to undertake side quests. Side quests will scale to your level, so it will probably be worth it to check them out whenever you get the chance.

The devs decided to keep many of the details secret lest they spoil too much of the story in advance. That said, they did reveal that you will occasionally head back to earlier areas to explore new side quests that weren't available the first time you went through there.

Aside from the loot, side quests will also reveal more details about the world and the story. These are new, handcrafted areas of Enoch that will give players a unique experience that they could miss entirely if they only followed along with the main story.

These are just some of the details revealed today — it's really worth giving the whole trailer a watch if you're interested in this upcoming game. For now, you're going to have to wait until the end of the year to play this Square Enix's next big project; in the meantime, you can add Outriders to your wishlist on Steam or pre-purchase the Deluxe Edition for $59.84 or your regional equivalent. You can learn more about this upcoming game on its official website.
