A: Outcasters is a fast-paced, competitive, and chaotic shooter for up to 8 players. It’ll test your speed, skill, and creativity if you want to win.
Q: How long is the average match? Will the game be quick to pick up and play, or require a long time investment in each match?
A: Matches can be short if you’re really good! But we want you to be able to enjoy Outcasters no matter how much time you have. You can pick up and play for a few matches, or play it for ages with your friends.
It’s why Stadia is the perfect platform for Outcasters; it’s so easy to jump in with your friends straight away.
Q: Do your characters level up at all with play, or are any drops or unlocks just cosmetics?
A: You unlock abilities over your first few levels as you learn the game, but everything else is up to you!
