Outriders review

  • Posted on 09 April 21 at 16:49
    Outriders is seemingly off to a pretty strong start, but is it any good? Yes... at least when the online aspect allows it to be. Here's our squad's take on People Can Fly's new sci-fi action-RPG.

    Good review. Setting a high standard with 50 hours and all achievements earned, but at least people can't use that against the interview.

    So "polish" is something that happens 6-12 months following release. Fine with me because waiting to buy saves me money.

    "I literally only sold enough junk to unlock Hard Bargainer before I went back to breaking everything down, which is way more beneficial."

    No. It's only beneficial to dismantle items when you need their mods. After that, SELL SELL SELL everything. After about 3/4 through the story you can buy Titanium from Baily in most camps. This is by far the easiest way to obtain tons of it and you'll need lots for upgrading Epics/Legendaries and for selling it to buy Drop Pod Resources.
    Walk the plank Rebel scum!

    I beg to differ. I get tons of Titanium anyway, and the Shards you get from breaking stuff down are vital for maxing out gear, and there's no other way of getting them. I do sell the odd thing if I've already got stacks of the type of Shard it would give, but that's about it.

    This game has already aged like milk to me tbh. It does a lot of things decent, but absolutely nothing extremely well IMHO. I'll be surprised if this game is still in the top 30 by the end of the month tbh. It's worth playing ONLY if you have gamepass... whatever that is and isn't worth.

    It's nice reading from a reviewer that could actually play the game LOL. The youtube reviewers I watch delayed their review because they couldn't get thru an entire match without DC or freezing.

    Ah, seeing it marked as Game Pass for PC on the game page and it being on the list for games on Game Pass for PC on TA led me to believe that it was indeed on there but after further research it seems that you were right and its not on Game Pass for PC yet, my apologies.

    This game has definitely got my eyes on it, but I've been putting it off in skepticism until I heard more solid positive things about it. 4/5 rating? A reasonable 50 hour completion unlike some grindy chore of a game like Destiny? You've got my attention. Time to start getting the value out of my game pass sub and download this asap. Thanks for the review. 👍

    So If I wait a month or so until things work as intended can I solo this game or do I need to make friends to enjoy this?

    I cam here to ask this very question. If this is light-years away from Destiny 2 in terms of grind and time commitment, and it can more or less be done solo, I might actually consider a full purchase. The screens are compelling enough ngl.

    You can solo easily.

    Entire main game and 1,000G both easily soloable as you can adjust the World Tier any time to make it as easy or challenging as you like. For the optional endgame stuff, you will almost certainly need a team if you want to reach Challenge Tier 15 and the final Expedition.
