Outriders thoughts?

As a fan of the looter-shooter genre, this game is right up my alley. Ive played the demo with 2 of the classes and it looks pretty good so far. It feels like a cross between Gears of War (shooting and fighting) and The Division (shooting, look, movement) with elements of Destiny 2 (superpowers, gear building).

Anyone else try the demo? I like the idea that the demo is available until the game is available on April 1st so you can try out all the classes and such.

The story is kinda meh but, to me, gets a little better when you start collecting data though its not a totally unique backstory in regards to sci-fi.

For what it is, OutRiders is a good game. It does seem like a weird combination, a story like Gears of War, plays like The Division, and looks like Destiny. I was a little bummed that the maps were not as open as I thought they would be. But yeah, it's not amazing or ground breaking it's just good. I hope it succeeds and does well, I just wish people would stop trying to call it a Destiny killer.

I'm seriously enjoying the demo. Character models could use some love, but in the end, you'll be running around with a helmet, anyway. I like the attack-to-heal mechanic, it's perhaps the one novel thing they did (afaik) and it really pushes you to a different play style from, say, Gears. Personally, I detest the first-person view, so any shooter with 3rd-person is welcome. It's a bit early to tell if the excitement's gonna last—shiny new toys are always a thrill at first—but I can see myself sticking with Outriders at least long enough to satisfy the price/playtime ratio.

I am a little bumbed that the devs have stated that they dont intend to treat outriders like a live service as its compared to destiny and division etc., but i wish it was because i would be willing to sink the time into the game if it offered a lot of good endgame content. Hopefully them saying that doesnt mean that an endgame wont be plentiful but.

Cinematics are fine, i understand peoples complaint about the constant camera shaking in the cutscenes, but that aint going away, but the devs have acknowledged they will try to fix it.

Thats what i like the most here, is they release a demo a month out and seem to be at the ready to listen and answer feedback. So thats promising to see.

I haven't played the demo by myself, but I watched some streams from it and I'm not impressed. The game feels very generic. Yet another co-op shooter in TPP. Reminds me of Anthem which had a similar problem. I don't expect the game to be a huge success. Even if it achieves a significant success in the beginning, this will probably change in time. Nothing special IMHO. :)

I've played it quite a bit and it seems ok enough for me to pre-order it. I've tried 3 of the classes and really like 2 of them.

There is an endgame which is separate from the campaign and the fact that it is NOT a service game is to my liking. I don't like to be forced to play a game just to keep up with the content.

Having played all 4 classes enough and using a couple of different legendary weapons, i can say im more than happy now to have this pre-ordered. The devs have been very communicative which is rare from devs these days, they are using an unique anti-cheater system and its crossplay along with the fact that xbox users can play for free with the pass. Im ready for it.

Well, aside from server issues on launch, still having a blast with this game. I disagree mostly with PCG's review but everyone has their own opinions which i can respect. It is worth the money for anyone thats on the fence about it.
