They've been around the block, or two, but Poland
-based People Can Fly
is a studio that knows its strengths, and has consistently delivered excellent experience in various shootery forms over the years. Now they have a new IP they're sharing with the world in Outriders
, and we've already played it.
Here's a snippet from our time with the game over in Warsaw
When we land on Enoch the place is bliss; green pastures, seemingly bountiful food and everything we could need to start over again. Unironically, the landing party is driving space trucks (that’s what we’ll call them from now on), through trees and native faunae with little regard for the damage being done to our new home. We are now interplanetary squatters, and it’s already showing why we had to leave our last squat. But I digress.

While you can name your character, from here on out you’re only known as “Boss”, though you’re hardly the boss. We won’t spoil how it all plays out here suffice to say you’ll be running in a straight line here, back to there, and then back again until the ‘event’ happens. Your only option is to get back to your giant landing pod and pop yourself back into cryo-sleep so that everything can settle and when more eggheads come down and work out what went wrong, we can start to set things right, right?
