People Can Fly and Square Enix today released a gameplay trailer for their upcoming, next-gen game Outriders. The game, which will be available in current-gen systems as well as Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC, is a 1-3 player, drop-in drop-out co-op RPG shooter which promises to be set in a futuristic, dark sci-fi universe. The premise is as such: humanity as we know it abandoned Earth in search of a new home, which they thought they had found in the form of Enoch. A worldwide, storm-like event dubbed The Anomaly (which may have been produced by more than weather phenomena, I wager) forced humanity back into cryo-suspension whilst they waited for the proverbial storm to pass. The eventually reawakened ones find burning powers within themselves that will force them to confront their humanity, evolve - and eventually, to become something different.

People Can Fly describe the game as "Players will create their own Outrider and embark on a journey across a hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, they will leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal." You can expect an arsenal of weapons and supernatural powers, though the exact nature of the game's world and systems (open-world, quasi-open world, or some such) still haven't been clarified. Expect the game to drop come holiday 2020, right alongside the next-generation console launch. A reveal stream will be available via Twitch in about two days - there's a countdown timer in the official Outriders page.

Amazing, but there was zero usefull information in that video, and after I watched it, I still had no clue what that game is about, or even what kind of game it will be.

Luckily the news article had some info.

It's "next-gen" because it doesn't have any gameplay.
Au contraire. The whole thing was pure gamplay - quick time events without prompts, for greater immersion...

It'll be interesting to see how this one pans out. It feels a bit like a Destiny/Bulletstorm mash-up, with a similar world setting to Anthem. Anthem is already a pretty low bar to match and exceed. It's also likely to be one of the first of several games on PS5, so Square would want to at least make it engaging enough to be considered a worthy launch title.
