Outriders is a drop-dead gorgeous game, with stunning scenery that more than once had me stopping for screenshots. The graphical performance on the 3070 with raytracing made the environments come to life. Its reflections seemed almost lifelike and immersed me into the game, captivating every little detail whether it was the water or even tree trunks. Outriders is a true testament to what current generation graphic cards can produce.
The gameplay is very satisfying for a current-generation cooperative shooter. Being in 3rd person paired with taking cover and movement felt exactly like Gears of War. The animations for critical kills were gore-filled and graphic, not to mention the headshots were extremely satisfying. In addition to combat, the game provided a lot of incentive for exploration. Every area felt filled with secrets and side quests that you could stumble upon such as hits or hunts, and chests, as well as iron, were hidden about for players to stumble upon. The game made it easy to get lost in, just out of pure exploration and trying to uncover every nook and cranny of each area.
The game is filled with a lot of side content in the campaign, and full of replayability for grinding gear or leveling. There are side quests placed in every new main area, as well as some to discover while exploring. There are plenty of hunts for huge creatures to do, and even eventually cash in for rewards at Trent Town. In addition to hunts, there are also wanted posters placed in every new area to gain rewards from.
