Despite the delay, there is good news in the announcement. If you’re looking forward to Square Enix’s action game, then there’s a chance you’ll get your hands on Outriders a little earlier than expected, as a free demo of the game will be released on all platforms on February 25.
The demo will cover the first hours of the game, both in single-player and multiplayer modes. Plus, you’ll be able to experiment with the four classes available in the Outriders demo, perfect for getting familiar with all four classes before the full game launches at the end of the year.
If you are not familiar with Outriders, it is basically a massive cooperative PvE game where human players take on enigmatic alien creatures in a post-apocalyptic world. However, it is an RPG at its core, featuring a variety of skill trees for all four playable classes, as well as customizable loot-shaped weapons and equipment.
Outriders will launch in just under three months from now, on April 1, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S, with a free update path on PlayStation platforms. To see what we made of our time with Square Enix’s new game, head over to our Outriders preview to learn more.
