Just a short year after his release, the shooter Outrider gets a comprehensive DLC. The name is the name WorldSlayer and, among other things, delivers a complete new campaign and additional incentives for the endgame. We were able to throw a first look at the content at a preview appointment and briefly put in the DLC.

The most important facts about the Outrider: WorldSlayer-DLC at a glance:

  • Release: 30. June 2022
  • Price: not yet known
  • Systems: PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Main game required? Yes

That’s all in the WorldSlayer DLC

The new campaign is icy: The anomaly on the planet ENOCH continues to develop and now sends us in biplexed ice and snow regions, which make themselves the monsters on the planet. Although the concrete storyline was not yet betrayed, but it is apparent Ereshkigal, the leader of the human insertion Faction , to take an important role. This obviously has its own plans for the future of humanity on ENoch and is belonging to the opponents of the new campaign.

New locations and opponents: To neutralize this threat, the outriders must travel completely new areas, we fought us in the play-session, for example by a crumbling and misty coastal village.

In addition, according to People Can Fly, there will be new opponent variations as well as completely new enemies, including a demonic fisherman, whom we had to put on when playing.

Stronger Loot and Gear: To tackle the events in Worldslayer and defeat the new opponents, it needs stronger Gear, which of course the DLC should also provide. The speech is, inter alia, of class-specific or universally applicable legendary armaments sets. More information about this should be there at a later date.

Additional Skilltree: In WorldSlayer, each of the existing classes will be given in addition to the existing a second “PAX” skilltree, which in turn should divide into two subclasses. The points for this are unlocked via special WorldSlayer events.

New long-term progress system: For outrider veterans, the new ascension system is likely to be interesting. This allows us to improve our own characters in four other categories:

  • Endurance

  • Brutality
  • Anomaly Power

Overall, it should be possible to earn almost 200 ascension points, which can then be distributed on the different categories.

Apocalypse Tier: These run until level 40, replace the previous challenge animals of the expeditions and should be even more demanding. In addition, there will be Apocalypse Gear, which is characterized by a third mod slot, which is likely to make the corresponding equipment to the previously most powerful items in Outriders.

New endgame activity: The above mentioned innovations are likely to keep outrider’s players in their mood for some time, but the thickest chunks waits with the new endgame activity after completing the WorldSlayer campaign. Then the “Trial of Trya Gratar” opens in which apparently another demonic upper church is waiting. Also, there will be more information only in the coming weeks.

Can also get startup directly with the DLC?

According to the developers of People Can Fly, you do not have to be found through the complete game and the previous endgame activities to get started with the content of WorldSlayers. If you are still in the campaign or restarted in the campaign, you can easily create a new character and then automatically up to the required rank 30 high-bounty. Something suitable Gear is then donated.

For whom is the WorldSlayer DLC suitable?

Even if newcomers have the opportunity to enter the DLC content directly into the DLC content, the Outriders-DLC focuses mainly of all those who have already explored every angle of the game, have driven their character to the limit and that are still deeper into the systems of the game want to dig up.

For those likely, the endgame activities or the additional skilltrees and Gear options are likely to be interesting, on the paper, the WorldSlayer DLC promises at least a lot of additional long-term motivation. Anyone who does with Outrider’s or has just started, should also find enough content in the basic game for a long time and does not necessarily need the DLC.

Tobias Veltin

Although I have not invested a little playing time in Outriders, but I did not arrive long at the end of the shooter.
Accordingly, I do not really belong to the target group of the DLC, for those who long for new content and, above all, challenges, sounds Worldslayer but after a fairly fat package.
With the new campaign, and in particular the extended endgame activities, veterans are likely to have their bright pleasure.
And the general gameplay loop of the game will probably not be boring so fast in the extension, that has clearly demonstrated the short player session clearly.
All with the appropriate game time on the Outrider’s watch should keep an eye on the DLC in any case.
