Square Enix has announced what players can expect when completing the campaign of Outriders, the co-op RPG shooter, and that post campaign content is called Expeditions. These Expeditions missions will be amongst the hardest missions that you will have the chance to conquer. You will need the best equipment available to you as well as some very good teamwork in order to take on the challenges that will be coming your way.
Bartek Kmita, Creative Director of Outriders at People Can Fly, said:
“Expeditions expand on the story of the Outriders campaign and features the toughest challenges in the game. They’re meant to be played with a team of skilled and coordinated Outriders. Powerful equipment and efficient character builds, along with true skill and mastery over your class, are necessary to succeed and reach the highest levels of Expeditions.”
Outriders will allow those who purchase the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game to upgrade for free to the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S versions of the game. In addition, Square Enix also previously stated that there would be full cross platform play, including between generations, so players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia will all be able to play together. Stefan spoke to Bartek Kmita and Szymon Barchan earlier this year. From that interview, he wrote:
It would be easy to dismiss Outriders out of hand, but to do so would be to overlook the ways it stands out from its fellow looter shooters. The greater emphasis on the RPG side of the game, with character builds that are more than just what you happen to be wearing and holding in your hands, and just having a self-contained story all sounds rather appealing to me. Throw in People Can Fly’s game-making history, and Outriders is definitely a game to keep an eye on for later this year.
