Outriders is getting a “colossal” free content update on November 16. Called New Horizon, the update will bring a reworked expedition loot reward system, brand-new expeditions to explore, and new customisation options for your characters.
The New Horizon update marks the first major post-launch content drop for Outriders, and a key feature is the rework to expeditions – the endgame missions available after you’ve wrapped the main campaign. Before the New Horizon update, players had to complete these expeditions as quickly as possible to get the best loot; however, this is no longer the case. The reworked expeditions do away with any time-based rewards, instead offering more rewards based on how long it should generally take to complete that expedition. There’s still an option to turn on timers for expeditions for those who want the challenge, but this is just for bragging rights – you won’t get any extra goodies for doing so.
The biggest effect of this change is that it’ll take as long to complete a single long expedition as multiple runs of shorter expeditions to get the same loot. It should also give players the freedom to go into an expedition without pigeonholing themselves into a specific Outriders build designed to get through expeditions as quickly as possible. This update works in tandem with previous updates that increase legendary loot drop rates and the system that reduces the chance of picking up duplicates of legendary loot you already have.
