Happy New Year. We think it’s important for players to experience a new license like this Outrider So you can decide for yourself whether you want to pre-order, buy or play the title.
Because of this, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be making a free demo available on February 25, 2021, which will give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the early hours of the game in all four classes – solo or co-op – as well experience ‘seamless transfer of your character and progress to full game.
Speaking of which, we’ve decided to move the release date ofOutrider by April 1, 2021 (this is no joke!). We will use this extra time to improve the game and focus on delivering a great gaming experience at launch.
This is a laudable decision by the developers. They want both of them to have more time to deliver a quality experience and give the players a taste before going through the buy box. As a reminder, the adventure will take place on a hostile planet called Enoch, with difficult climatic conditions and an aggressive population. You will be on the lookout for a mysterious signal in the hope of finding a new home when the earth is no longer habitable.
I’ll see you in a little less than three months to find out what one of People Can Fly’s three ongoing productions has in store for us.
