Bulletstorm devs are making a Destiny-style shooter, and it’s pretty good

Hands-on with People Can Fly’s next-gen debut, Outriders

InIn the not-so-distant future, a dying Earth has caused its inhabitants to look for a new planet to call home. After decades of space travel that leave its passengers suspended in time, the bold group given this monumental task sets foot on a new world.
