Microsoft has announced that Xbox Game Pass (@XboxGamePass) for Console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can jump into Outriders starting April 1st.
Outriders, the next game from People Can Fly, is a shooter set in a dark and desperate sci-fi universe. This brand new IP is developed by People Can Fly, the creators of Gears of War Judgement and Bulletstorm and is published by Square Enix External Studios.
Outriders is set in the distant future where players attempt to colonize a planet that they believe to be a new home for humanity. Turns out, the planet doesn’t want them there. Oops. A mysterious storm called the Anomaly burnt out all the tech that’s more advanced than a lightbulb, hyper-evolved the wildlife into ferocious monsters, and colonization efforts broke down into a bitter war of attrition for the last remaining resources available to humanity.
You are an Outrider, re-awoken from cryostasis 30 years after the first landing on Enoch – emerging as an Altered – a being with access to powerful skills and healing abilities. And now you get to flex those skills on the ever-raging battlefield! Create and customize your own Outrider, then use their devastating array of abilities to annihilate your enemy as you embark on the journey to discover the source of a mysterious signal on a dangerous and untamed world.
You can play single-player or co-op with up to two friends as you combine skill and speed in a frenetic attempt to survive a savage future in this aggressive third-person perspective RPG-Shooter. And don’t forget it’s fully cross-play – explore Enoch with any of your friends on any other platform!
Outriders will be available for Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on April 1, 2021. An expansive Outriders demo is now available to download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Just Die Already - Curve Digital's old people mayhem sandbox game is coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC on Steam and Epic Games Store. Check out the brand new trailer!
Just Die Already, the next game from Goat Simulator designer Armin Ibrisagic, is the perfect old age pensioner playground for those into breaking a leg and the Odd Frail Neck. The game takes place in the near future at a time where population growth has stalled to zero, presumably because having to wear a mask at all times somewhat hinders any amorous encounters. As a result, nobody is being born, nobody is paying into the pension pot, and nobody is covering your living costs.
To make things worse, you’ve just been kicked out of your retirement home, and your only option now is to perform dangerous challenges to qualify for free care. Players can either take on Just Die Already alone or compete in four-player online multiplayer, ticking off dangerous challenges that put your life - and, indeed, every single bone in your body - in pure peril.
You’ll get hit by cars, you’ll lose the odd limb or two, and you’ll smash into the ground after launching yourself from a catapult, all in the process of earning that spot at a prized retirement home.
Let's take a look at the official trailer:
Developed by DoubleMoose and published by Curve Digital, Just Die Already will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch as well as PC on Steam and Epic Games Store.
