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.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
