Square Enix has revealed Outriders, the mysterious sci-fi game it's been teasing on Twitter. It's the next shooter from Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly, which pits up to three buddies against an alien world seemingly determined to eradicate what could be the last of mankind. Cheery stuff! A loud, red trailer accompanied the announcement, teasing some of the world's bigger threats. Give it a watch above.

 With Earth on its last legs, adventurous humans have taken to the stars to find a new home on the alien world of Enoch. Through Square Enix's teases, we know that the ship was damaged before it reached Enoch, and as the trailer reveals, it's not the sort of place where you can just build a colony and sit back.   You can explore Outriders' "dark and desperate" sci-fi universe on your own or with up to two friends through drop-in drop-out co-op, attempting to investigate a strange signal. People Can Fly say there's a strong narrative propelling it forwards, but it looks like you'll be doing plenty of murdering on your way to unravelling the secrets of the planet.
