The Outriders Worldslayer DLC for People Can Fly’s sci-fi shooter game will be released this summer, giving fans a lot to look forward to.
Worldslayer will not only introduce a new story campaign to the post-apocalyptic world of Outriders, but it will also make significant changes to the game’s loot, difficulty, and gear upgrades.
It is a paid expansion that will be available as a digital upgrade for existing Outriders players who have purchased the game’s original version in digital format. Meanwhile, new players will be able to purchase a single package that contains both the base game and the new content.
You will be capable of carrying over your existing characters or creating new ones and level them all the way up to level 30. In any case, you’ll face a slew of tough opponents before meeting the new big bad, a powerful ‘Altered’ named Ereshkigal. We have a feeling she won’t go quietly.
So, when will the Outriders Worldslayer DLC be released, and what else should you know about it? Continue reading, and we’ll break it all down for you, as well as tell you how we got on with an early Worldslayer demo.

Outriders Worldlayer Gameplay Impressions
That’s a lot of information to process, and you’d be wondering how it all translates into a playable experience. Simply put, is Worldslayer enjoyable, but should it be enough to entice you back into Outriders?
We had the chance to play an early build of Worldslayer for an hour or so on PC here at thecurrent-online.com, so we’re in a good position to say to see if this DLC is worth a look. In a nutshell, we believe it is.
Jumping into the Worldslayer content is similar to putting on a favorite piece of clothing that you had thought you’d misplaced for a while. You’re surprised to discover that it still fits perfectly and that it looks and feels a lot better than you remember.
Playing Worldslayer online with one other player, we quickly created a Trickster character and jumped right into the action of the game’s opening moments. We’re immediately thrown into a fight against a massive furry creature in a snowy section of Enoch.
The encounter is reminiscent of the Luke vs. Wampa fight from The Empire Strikes Back, and with a lot more die-hard action – we’re dodging strong attacks, dishing out our own supernatural trickery, and battling zombie-like alien foot-soldiers while fighting their big furry friend.
It’s a strong start, reminding us how much fun it was to be in the thick of an Outriders battle when the game first came out (way back in April 2021, if you were wondering). We’re glad the creators didn’t let this game die quietly. It’s back with a bang and feeling very revitalized.
It’s not long after we finish the snow battle that we find ourselves following a new story led into a waterside dock area. We’ve worked our way up to Apocalypse Tier 3 and Ascension Level 3, and things are getting pretty difficult – just as you’d expect from a DLC, Worldslayer definitely ups the ante in terms of opponent strength (and the sheer volume of enemies) to keep even the most seasoned players on their toes.
Down by the water, a real challenge awaits a terrifying new foe known as the Fisherman, who resembles Mr. X from Resident Evil dressed in Stephen King’s IT’s yellow raincoat. We won’t go into his backstory here, but suffice it to say that he makes an intimidating silhouette.
This large foe wields two massive swords, and it takes us several attempts – a lot of dodging and a lot of attacking from a distance – to bring this mac-wearing menace down. To be honest, this boss battle is thrilling and even a little scary. We don’t remember the original Outriders campaign feeling quite this erratic and exciting.
With the Fisherman defeated, our demo came to a close, leaving us eager to play more Worldslayer. This feels like the tip of the iceberg, and it certainly piqued our interest. We didn’t have much time to test out how useful the third mod slot could be, but we believe it has the potential to be extremely useful as the difficulty level increases.
When the Outriders Worldslayer DLC is released on June 30th, we’ll definitely be leaping in to try out the new gear and other gameplay upgrades, as well as see where the story goes. We’d recommend doing the same if you liked Outriders in the first place.
