Square Enix’s Shooter Outriders Has “A Strong Story” That Can be Played Solo

Outriders

Although Square Enix and People Can Fly’s new shooter Outriders is described as a co-op game, it can be played entirely solo.

The game’s director Bartosz Kmita appeared at Square Enix’s E3 press conference via a pre-recorded video to provide some baseline details about the project.

One of the most tantalising pieces of information is that Outriders will feature “a strong story.” The game takes place on a distant, dangerous planet called Enoch, and the characters will set out to find a “mysterious signal.”

Kmita also described Outriders as “a dark modern shooter” that the team has “wanted to make for a very long time.”

Further details will be revealed towards the end of this year, with the game set to arrive in the northern hemisphere’s summer 2020.

The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
