The minute the gaming community was introduced to Outriders, they knew this was it. The game introduced us to a whole new world with elements that we never knew could exist in gameplay. The cinematic environment and the connection that the players have to their character were unparalleled. It set new highs for the gaming industry and broke a few records on the way. No, there is not a game that could replace Outriders, but we give you a list of games similar to Outriders.
List of 10 games similar to Outriders
Far Cry 6
Far Cry 6 is the sixth installment of the Far Cry Series by Ubisoft which is a long-awaited game worldwide. It is a first-person shooter game whose popularity rose after the third installment due to its initial villain Vaas Montenegro. The game takes place on Yara, a fictional Caribbean island. It is nder the dictatorship of Antón Castillo who is portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito. He is raising his son Diego to follow in his footsteps and take his legacy ahead. This installation seems to emphasize Castillo’s relationship with his son Diego. The fans are excited to see Esposito as the villain after seeing his ability to play negative roles since Breaking Bad.
Exploring Yara would take the players to a tropical paradise that is frozen in the 1960s even tho the game is set in the present day. The 60s vibes indicate the presence of vintage cars, weapons, and gadgets that would add to the charismatic setting of the game. The players take the role of Dani Rojas, a guerrilla fighter whose gender can be customized like the 5th installation at the start. The aim is to override Castillo’s regime and Fangs for Hire is making a comeback that will allow players to recruit animals for assistance in fights. The game has some of the most amazing relationships, betrayals, and a sense of survival which we find similar to Outriders. It is releasing on Amazon Luna, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village is the 8th installment in the Resident Evil franchise published by Capcom, launching as a sequel to the Resident Evil 7:Biohazard. From a first-person perspective, the publishers have also launched an online 6 player mode as Resident Evil RE: Verse. The game takes place a few years after the horrifying events in the 7th installment with the return of our favorite protagonist Ethan Winters. His return not only gives a personal touch but also a wide perspective making it one of the best installments according to the publishers. Lady Dimitrecu, the main antagonist has already caught our attention and widely positive feedback from the masses.
The beauty of this installment is that new players can quickly catch up without playing the previous games. With some unrealistically real graphics and a sense of excitement on every corner of the game, the game gives the prime focus on the location where the game is held – ‘the village’ and is attempting to induce it in the story as a character rather a location. This is a huge similarity that we see, the location has played a big part in the story of both Outriders and Resident Evil Village. The fans have already begun pre-ordering and the game has been already seen as a huge success even before the launch. It is releasing on Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Halo Infinite is the 6th main installation of the Halo franchise developed by 343, a first-person shooter game. The 2020 gameplay reveal had very poor feedback from the fans which made the publishers push the release date further in 2021. The developers seem to revamp the game which makes it much more awaited now as this installation is expected to bounce back the entire franchise after a negative review. We get to see a more open world than the previous halo games with a day and night cycle in place.
The cycle and even more detailed environment promises players an experience that has never been felt before. The game changes its tone and mood depending on the location and the time cycle. The story revolves around a damaged Halo ring with the antagonists being banished. We also see some design comebacks of the Master Chief’s Mjolnir from halo 2 and 3. This game is easily the most-awaited release in 2021, just like Outriders was. Xbox Game Studios is releasing it for Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Cyberpunk is an open-world game and as the name suggests, set in 2077. The players take on the character of a mercenary who goes by the name V. A highly customizable character with cybernetic enhancements that goes up against the big corporations, the game gives you three paths of life to choose from. First of all, the Keanu Reeves features in the game. Do we need to say more?
Apart from that, the game is like soul food. It may have its bugs at the start but there have been a number of patch fixes. The combination of a rogue punk mercenary and the futuristic technology fit like two peas in a pod which is surprising. This is where the game meets the Outriders theme. The game looks like a high-end movie with advanced tech weapons and skills. Though the plot is rebellious, the players cannot help but wish to live in a world like this game offers. The game is available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
Biomutant is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. This game features a world filled with mutated mammals and the story revolved around a bleeding tree of life and divided tribes. The game has an open world environment. Everything in the game is open to high customization from your character to its armor and even the weapons.
The players can get creative with these endless customization options and explore the game in different aspects. The gameplay allows players to design their own story and a unique end making it a favorite of a large scale of players. The theme of mutated creatures and saving their own kind matches the plot of Outriders and can be considered similar on many levels.

They are on the mysterious island of Blackreef, stuck in a cycle of an endless time loop. Each new loop allows the player to adapt and learn.

The players can be switched between the two assassins and the time loop give the players an adrenaline rush. The environment gives the players a 60s retro-future vibe with realistic graphics and endless twists and turns. The reason we say this game is like Outriders because the game features elements of gameplay that are completely new and have experimented on several different things. It releasing on PlayStation 5 and PC.

Godfall is a Looter slasher, which is based on the looter shooter concept of Outriders. The game is high fantasy with heavenly and hellish environments, both equally beautiful.

Players can choose from 5 character classes depending upon their taste in the gameplay. The game is very aesthetically pleasing and invokes a sense of responsibility within the players automatically.

From human clones to transhumans and from unnatural morphed beings to techno monsters, the game developers let their creative juices flow.
