Outriders Gets Massive Update Tomorrow, New Content in 2022
Square Enix and People Can Fly have been pretty quiet on the Outridersfront in what has been a jam-packed 2021 fall season in gaming, but that changes now.
Tomorrow (November 16th), the game will get a free update that Square Enix is calling “huge.” New Horizon introduces four new Expeditions, an all-new Transmog system (finally!), removed timers while in Expeditions, new weapon skins, rebalanced Classes, Skills and Mods, and an overhaul to Tiago’s Expedition store and his vendor items, as well as many more general life improvements and updates to the game. A lot of this is stuff that players have been asking for since the game dropped in April, so it’s great to see it come along!
The four expeditions are:
Molten Depths will send you back to Eagle Peaks. When a drop pod signal activated, Dunham investigated and found a hidden power station. In order to take it back online, she wants you to clear out the station from any unwanted tenants, no matter the size, shape and form.
The City of Nomads will confront you with a character, who is haunted by the sins of his past. Very aware of his dark history, you decide to help him in protecting the old Pax village Uketu Atarah.
In The Marshal’s Complex, Corrigan, the great grand marshal himself asks you to reclaim a facility near Deadrock Pass, taken by insurgents. It won’t take you long to discover that this facility is anything but just another insurgent camp.
Last but not least: The Wellspring. Tiago told you about the Pax legend of a sacred place called Atuma ih Taru, where pilgrims would take long travels to sacrifice their treasures into deep wells. You and your team are in search of those forgotten riches, if it wasn’t for this tremendous storm that seems to get stronger and stronger.
Additionally, a paid-DLC titled Outriders: Worldslayer is coming in 2022, with a full reveal hinted to be happening in the spring. “We’ve been hard at work improving the Outriders experience, and with the free ‘New Horizon’ update we’ve improved and addressed the majority of player feedback ahead of our major 2022 expansion— ‘Worldslayer,’” said Square Enix External Studios co-head of studio Jon Brooke in a press release. “So there’s no better time than now to start, restart, or continue your journey through Enoch in what is now the ultimate version of Outriders.”
