The Outriders: New Horizon update will be released tomorrow, 16th November, at 5PM GMT, bringing a big batch of new content, changes and rebalancing to gameplay and more to the game. Check it out in the new spotlight trailer:


The New Horizon update will add four new Expeditions while also removing the timers in Expeditions throughout the game. THere’s also a new Transmog system and new weapon skins to earn, while People Can Fly have gone back through the game with a fine comb to rebalance classes, skills, mods and overhaul the Tiagos Expedition store.

People Can Fly also hint that there’s more to come in the future, with the Worldslayer expansion teased for some time in 2022. A full reveal will come in the spring, roughly one year after the game’s original release.

Outriders had a bumpy ride since its launch. Square Enix proudly announced that the game reached 3.5 million unique players in its first month of release, though that player count does not relate directly to sales, as it launched into the subscription service Xbox Game Pass. The game also struggled with severe server issues during that time, and they took a month to restore accidentally deleted items back to player inventories. It is unclear how much money Outriders has made either, as according to People Can Fly back in August the company had not received royalties that were linked to profits from the success of the game.

In our Outriders review, Jim wrote:

“Outriders juggles some truly captivating ideas for the looter shooter genre, yet fails to deftly execute them. While it succeeds in combining traditional third person shooting with rewarding dungeon crawling, its messy matchmaking, repetitive mission design, and a dull sci-fi story hold People Can Fly back from delivering to their fullest potential.”
