Square Enix and People Can Fly have revealed more gameplay and details for upcoming RPG shooter Outriders, in the second monthly livestream.
As stated in the press release (via Games Press), the game’s story takes place on Enoch; a planet where life “hyper-evolved” to wipe out humanity from that world. Players must explore far and wide, from human colonies to jungles and deserts, discovering the secrets and mysteries of this world.
It was also revealed that Emmy Award Winner and three-time BAFTA nominee Inon Zur (Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Fallout 4, Dragon Age II, and more) will be composing the game’s soundtrack. Zur explained his excitement for the project.
“As a composer it’s always extremely exciting to be involved in building new worlds and telling new stories, so I’m thrilled to reveal that I have composed the score for People Can Fly and Square Enix’s epic sci-fi action game OUTRIDERS. It was a lot of fun blending heavy orchestral soundscapes and futuristic musical sound design for this rollercoaster sci-fi adventure and I can’t wait to share the music with you.”
You can find the individual segments for the Pyromancer class, the music of composer Inon Zur, and the “Journey and Structure” of the game’s gameplay below (and the full livestream here).
