Publisher Square Enix and developer People Can Fly need a little bit more time to finish up their brand-new third-person shooter IP Outriders.
Outriders was set to launch in less than a month on February 2 but has now been moved to April 1. Players will get to go hands-on with the game next month still when a free demo launches on February 25 that will let you play the first few hours of the game.
Outriders will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC when it launches on April 1. A free upgrade will also be available for anyone who buys it on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
Happy New Year. We believe it’s important that players get to experience a new IP like Outriders before release, so that you can decide for yourselves whether the game is something you wish to pre-order, purchase or play.
For this reason we’re excited to announce that on February 25, 2021 we will be publishing a free demo, giving everyone the chance to play the first few hours of the game with all four classes—in both single-player and co-op—along with seamless migration of your character and progress to the full game.
Speaking of which, we have decided to move the release date of Outriders to April 1, 2021 (no joke!). We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.
Thanks for hanging tight a little longer—we appreciate your patience!
—The Outriders Team
