PS5, Xbox Series X Shooter Outriders Starts Monthly Video Series Today
The first episode will debut this week--here's everything you need to know.
Outriders, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game from the developers of Gears of War: Judgment and Bulletstorm, is getting a monthly video series. Titled "Outriders Broadcast," the monthly program will deliver news and information about the game, which is due for release later this year.
Episode 1, titled "Built for the Core," will release on Thursday, May 28 at 9 AM PT. It will focus on Outriders' gameplay features, environments, character classes, and special abilities, featuring insights and commentary from the developers at People Can Fly. The embedded video stream is available below.
In a statement, People Can Fly creative director Bartek Kmita said the studio came up with the idea for a video series to respond to the current climate.
"Obviously, things are a little bit strange in the world right now, and we're all adapting the best we can," Kmita said. "We've prioritized our people's safety and all 250+ of us on the team are working from home and staying healthy."
Kmita stressed that the Outriders development team remains "working hard" on the game and still expects it to launch on schedule this holiday. "With the cancellation of some of gaming's biggest events of the year, we've looked for new ways to share news about Outriders with players," Kmita said.
In addition to PS5 and Xbox Series X, Outriders will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Outriders will be published by Square Enix, and the publisher has plans for other announcements outside of this game. The company also confirmed that Marvel's Avengers will also have its own announcement event, but no details have been confirmed.
