Action RPGs in 2021: 14 Games to Look Out For


  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia
  • Release Date: April 1, 2021

Outriders is a third-person story-driven co-op RPG looter-shooter (a lot of qualifiers, I know) that takes place on the dangerous planet of Enoch. It's post-apocalyptic through and through, underpinned by a dark, sometimes morbid narrative. 

Leading up to release, one of the game's most appealing features is crossplay between all platforms and drop-in/drop-out co-op throughout its entire story. You can journey across this dangerous alien world with friends, regardless of their respective setups or in-game progression.

It's similar in nature to other looter-shooters like Destiny and The Division, but it's been made clear that Outriders won't follow the games-as-a-service model. Developer People Can Fly and publisher Square Enix have said the entire Outriders experience will be in a single package at launch. 

There is beta/demo out now on all platforms, and it will remain live even after the game launches on April 1. That gives those interested in checking it out plenty of time to do so.
