Outpost’s the title—blowing your eyebrows off with high-octane motion appears to be the sport. Revealed through the Steam Enter the Dragon showcase, which highlights upcoming titles from China, the trailer begins with a bang and by no means lets up. By the top you are undecided if that is going to be the most effective sport ever, or simply top-of-the-line.
The above video is timestamped to the trailer (which may also be seen on the game’s Steam page), however that is so good it wants a play-by-play.
The trailer begins with a Crimson Alert-style notification voice saying ‘Warning: Hostile sign detected’—basic. We instantly see somebody leaping off a roof firing a rocket launcher, earlier than a fast lower to another person taking pictures at what appear to be incoming comets.
We’re not even ten seconds in but. Now a personality flips open a missile case, lifts out a large missile, and tosses it up within the air. We lower to a different participant’s perspective because the missile flies up, they catch it, and slam it into a large gun. We then see an enormous gun, presumably this one, firing into the gap.
Then somebody’s taking pictures zombie-type foes in a snowfield—up to now, so regular—when a screen-filling obelisk factor crashes out of the sky into the enemy ranks.
Then we see a base which, and that is most likely my favorite a part of the entire thing, zooming out to an RTS view, then displaying off some RTS fight and chopping straight to an FPS view of a participant taking pictures a large rock monster, quick-cut as soon as extra to a touchdown craft being assailed by zombies—outdoors view then one from inside, child!
A dude turns as much as give a heroic speech during which he says the phrase “outpost” twice earlier than we hear “the outpost is underneath assault!” We see a large outpost that’s, certainly, underneath assault from a whole bunch of glowy dangerous issues.
Then there’s, like, three battleship platforms stacked atop each other firing, earlier than a mech lands and the character reloads their gun with a large golden ball.
Truly I lied earlier, that is my favorite bit. The display fades to black, briefly, earlier than a dude sighs and says: “We’ve envisioned the collapse of human society in some ways, nevertheless it got here quietly, from the creation that we’re most happy with”, after which there is a scene from the Matrix Revolutions, principally. Then some taking pictures into stated scene, and growth: that was 80 seconds of insanity.
Who is aware of if Outpost is the following massive factor, full schlock, or an over-ambitious challenge we’ll by no means hear of once more. It is being printed by Lightning Video games and, because the trailer suggests, is a multiplayer co-op shooter the place you acquire assets, and construct and enhance outposts and varied characters. An intriguing factor within the transient description is that battles are “full of random components”—although that is a kind of issues that may very well be a game-changer, or has little impact in follow.
Outpost does not have a launch date but however, if it comes with one other trailer like this, we’ll absolutely be reporting on it.
