If you’re still not sure why Outpost: Infinity Siege is worth keeping an eye on, we’ve listed 4 ways Outpost could shake up the co-op FPS genre. From what we’ve seen, there are many exciting features that you’ll want to explore.
Lots of customization options
While playing in the first person perspective, it seems like you have a lot of customization options for aspects of your gear. From the trailer we see interchangeable armor and weapon pieces that mess up the way you take on enemies on foot, but also provide benefits through the Protoslag system.
The Protoslag system looks like it will allow you to inject modifiers into your weapons of various rarities that provide combat benefits that either significantly change the type of projectiles you shoot or provide buffs to the player during combat . By intelligently managing your perks and upgrades, you can create a fine-tuned build that suits your playstyle.
In addition, we also see the outpost that you will build and protect in Outpost: Infinity Siege! From the trailer it’s clear that you can construct it the way you want it, placing massive weapons in key locations and setting up defenses to your liking.
Eventually we assume you’ll be able to construct a truly formidable outpost, packed with gigantic cannons or anti-aircraft guns, as well as additional upgrades for players fighting waves on the ground, all aimed at increasing the action during a Improve the game of Outpost: Infinite Siege.
It looks like Outpost: Infinity Siege has customization at its core in each of its main aspects. So if you’re a fan of survival FPS and want to take total control of your game, there’s a lot to be excited about.
Who doesn’t love a grappling hook? In Outpost: Infinity Siege, it looks like you can use your trusty grappling hook to traverse the map as well as the beautifully constructed outpost you’ve built from scratch. That means swinging around like you’ve been bitten by a radiant spider – something that’s scientifically proven every FPS game does better…probably.
But upon closer inspection of the trailer, it seems like there’s more to the grappling hook than just traversing. It seems you can use your grappling hook to snatch weapons lying around on the ground. We can only imagine that if you’re ever in a bind, some quick reactions and quick thinking can put a weapon upgrade right in your hands, ready for action.
Exploration seems to be an important part of Outpost: Infinity Siege, as you have to search nearby ruins and wilderness to find resources. These appear to be hugely important to your overall survivability as they appear to be used to improve your combat abilities through various upgrades.
Apparently, once you’ve got a basic outpost up and running, you can use resources to craft new gear for players as well as facilities for your outpost.
These resources seem limited, so you’d have to choose your upgrades and purchases carefully before more enemies come and try to wipe you out. However, if you make wise decisions and use your resources efficiently, you should be able to build yourself a powerful outpost to be reckoned with.
Above the FPS gameplay on the ground and even the outpost you build to tower above you, there appears to be a commander mode that allows a player to manage every aspect of their outpost from a management perspective and seemingly select, what enemies your engineered weapons should focus fire on, and what equipment to send out onto the battlefield for other players to use in battle.
That way, even if your shooting skills aren’t as good as your friends in the game, you can still be useful by taking good care of them and focusing the pressure on enemies that need it.
That wraps up our article on 4 ways Outpost is shaking up co-op FPS! The game is slated for release on PC in Q3 2023, and you can wishlist it on Steam here.
