Outriders Worldslayer: Everything you need to know

Online gaming's widespread appeal can partly be attributed to the ease with which it can be accessed. Desktops, mobile phones, and gaming consoles can all be used to play online games.

The Outworld Destroyer transforms intelligence into a terrifying weapon of mass destruction. Those who survive the arcane energy attack often lose their mana and sanity. For a brief moment, Outriders looked like it could dethrone Bungie's Destiny series, with a look and gameplay mirrored the newer title. A significant expansion of Outriders Worldslayer will be released in June, taking players deeper into the gaming world.

Extension of Outriders

Apocalypse-themed gear and special "Apocalypse" items await those who brave these more complicated stages. Outriders gamers should be familiar with Worldslayer, and there are no big-ticket elements such as a new class or weapon type (that we know of). Instead, Outriders expansion initially builds upon the game's strong foundation. Apocalypse difficulty tiers will be introduced in the game's numerous challenges (complexity levels that increase in difficulty as you play, delivering higher rewards), starting with difficulty level 1. For Outriders, the first 15 Apocalypse tiers will be available to players; for the Worldslayer, players will be able to access all 25 tiers, including Tier 40.

Outriders Worldslayer takes action to the further limits of Enoch's universe, where blizzards and frost storms have blanketed the countryside with snow and ice. This is the scenario for Worldslayer's new campaign, in which the tremendously powerful Ereshkigal, leader of the human insurgence, plots her own future for humanity on Enoch. When playing Outriders Worldslayer, you can start with the original campaign or use the level 30 boost to jump right into the outrider's expansion 2022 content with your fully improved and equipped Outrider.

The addition would include a level-30 boost that players can apply as many times as they like and can even be used to boost other classes to endgame levels if they missed the initial Outriders expansion 2022.

Outriders update 2022 was planned to keep adding content after its first release because it is an online-only game. In contrast, the new players have the opportunity to purchase a single package that includes both the main game and all future updates. As a paid add-on for existing Outriders owners, Worldslayer will be available as a digital download for those who already own the game.

Story details in the update Outriders

Worldslayer continues exactly where the base game ended its plot. When the last cargo pod lands on Enoch from the orbiting colony ship Flores, scientist Zahedi finally has enough data to determine that the Anomaly storm will soon engulf the whole planet, rendering it inhabitable for good. However, there is one last Hail Mary to pursue as Zahedi tells the player character about a fellow scientist on the Insurgent side who might have found something capable of sheltering the colonists against the encroaching Anomaly.

Thus begins the brief campaign of Outriders: Worldslayer, which culminates with a flashy boss fight against the crazed Altered Ereshkigal, commander of the Insurgents. We said brief because, although the developers said it would be between four and ten hours long, we reckon that estimate is quite generous; most players would be hard-pressed to take more than five hours to complete it and it definitely felt like People Can Fly should have squeezed at least a couple more missions. Of course, the campaign is only part of the offering. Outriders: Worldslayer also includes a brand new endgame activity called the Trial of Tarya Gratar. First introduced during the campaign, the Trial of Tarya Gratar differs from the base game Expeditions in many ways. To begin with, it is a single, large location that players have a set number of attempts to complete before it resets (which automatically happens if the players quit, too). The old city that once belonged to the natives of Enoch, the Pax, is divided into Crossroads (where players can take different paths that bring them to different encounters), Troves (dangerous areas that can reward great loot), and Arenas (where players face off against bosses to move to the next stage of the Trial of Tarya Gratar). The Troves are particularly notable because they introduce targeted loot farming, since they always drop the same type of loot, such as chest gear. This is unlike any other part of Outriders, where drops are entirely randomized.

The Trial of Tarya Gratar is also balanced in a different way compared to the rest of the game. That is to say, it is designed to be tackled by groups of three players, rather than soloed or duoed. You can still try to go at it solo, but only up to a certain level of difficulty. On that note, People Can Fly completely overhauled difficulty tiers in Outriders: Worldslayer, replacing both World Tiers and Challenge Tiers with the Apocalypse Tiers. This also applies if you don't have the expansion, albeit with some limitations; while the difficulty cap for Worldslayer is Apocalypse Tier 40 (max gear level 75), base Outriders players will only be able to get to Apocalypse Tier 15 (max gear level 50).

On the other hand, they can simply do that by farming the original campaign and Expeditions. Playing the former with Apocalypse Tiers was touted by the developers as a sort of New Game Plus experience featuring stronger foes and new loot. Similarly, Expeditions remain a viable endgame activity since they scale with Apocalypse Tiers and feature new loot.

When you're playing on Apocalypse Tiers, you have a certain percentage of chance to drop the brand new Apocalypse gear, variants of existing Epic and Legendary items with a brand new third mod slot. Do note that the third mod slot of an Apocalypse gear cannot be replaced, so you will likely want to find a particularly fitting mod for your playstyle.

New items in the Outriders: Worldslayer

Outriders: Worldslayer is said to include almost a hundred new Legendary items between armor and weapons, coming with unique and exciting mods altering the character's abilities. Each new class is getting two dedicated Legendary armor sets, while some new three-piece Legendary sets will be usable by any class.

Apocalypse gear is only part of the updated progression in Outriders: Worldslayer, though. Provided you've got the expansion, XP earnings will go toward levelling up the new Ascension system, which was designed as a way to reward the most regular players. Each Ascension level awards a corresponding Ascension point that can go towards improving your character's passive strength under categories like Brutality, Endurance, Prowess, or Anomaly. Each category has five options, such as Endurance improving your armor, health, damage mitigation against elites, et cetera. There are 200 Ascension Points to be earned throughout Outriders: Worldslayer, which should take a long time to unlock. Then there's the Pax tree, which is more akin to the regular class trees. There are two branching options that could be described as subclasses, further increasing the depth of build configurations in the game. Unlike Ascension points, Pax points are unlocked by completing specific milestones in the expansion, like finishing the story or progressing in the Trial of Tarya Gratar.

Overall, all of these systems work in combination to deliver a deeper and more enticing endgame experience, while newcomers can take advantage of the unlimited level 30 character boost feature to create brand new characters that are immediately able to join more experienced friends in Outriders: Worldslayer.

That said, the gameplay fundamentals have not changed in any way. This is still an extremely fun to play game with combat that hinges far more on being intense than strategic, which works against it when you're in an epic boss fight. There's still not much in the way of teamwork, putting Outriders: Worldslayer at a disadvantage in this area compared to other online shooter/action RPGs. The maps and levels are still mostly linear, just like in the base game, and seem at odds with what most players expect in a 2022 title.

Nonetheless, Outriders: Worldslayer is mostly a good time if you've enjoyed the base game, but likely won't change your opinion of Outriders at large in any significant fashion.

Outriders Worldslayer Release Date

During the summer of this year, Outriders' most significant expansion yet, Worldslayer, is due out. It will introduce a wealth of new material and functionality to the game. An entirely new story campaign and significant gameplay changes in the Outriders Worldslayer DLC will be included. Free updates like New Horizon, which made substantial improvements to the main game, have been offered by the game's developer, People Can Fly, since the game's debut release. Outriders Worldslayer’s release date is 30 June 2022. New and returning gamers alike can purchase the upcoming DLC on that date.
