Outriders outlines the Mantras of Survival at The Game Awards

In a new trailer revealed during The Game Awards, Outriders is teaching its players the Mantras of Survival.


Outriders is inching closer to release. Square Enix and People Can Fly offered the latest update on their co-op shooter during The Game Awards on Thursday, showing off some all-new gameplay footage.

Players got a first look at the Mantras of Survival, which is basically the rules of how to survive on this hostile world. What exactly does that entail?

  • Powers on Tap: Surviving means more than relying on your firearms. You have powers, so make sure to use them. After all, cooldowns are short.
  • Kill to Heal: You cannot regenerated health or recover with medkits in Outriders. The only way to heal is by successfully killing, so make sure to shoot whatever moves.
  • Cover's for Cowards: You can take cover in Outriders. It's not recommended, but you can.
  • Think Aggressive: I mean, didn't I just go over all of that in the last three mantras. Don't be afraid of conflict. Embrace it!

Outriders is almost here. It's set to release on February 2, 2021 on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It'll come to Google Stadia at a later date. We've covered Outriders before here at Shacknews, so be sure to check out our hands-on preview.
