No Full Game In February, How About A Free Demo
The release of Outriders, from People Can Fly and Square Enix has been delayed, to the unfortunate date of April 1st but there is also some good news for those waiting for it. Instead of offering early access to those that have pre-purchased the game or a closed beta offered to a few people there will be a free demo for you to try on February 25th. This has received mixed reactions from fans, as one might expect.
The demo will have a few hours of campaign play for you to try on your own or with up to two other friends to give you an idea of the current state of the game. There will be four different classes for you to try out as well as a look at the weapons crafting features available to you. The trailer over at Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN features a lot of cut scenes and pre-rendered footage but the few glimpses of gameplay do show a quite attractive looking game. The demo will give us a much better idea of what it actually looks like.
When the game does finally arrive, you will be able to get it via Steam and Epic for PC, and it will also be available on PlayStations, Xbox boxes, and Stadia, with users of all platforms able to play with each other.
They’ve announced a new date now, a bit later than the February mark they’d previously mentioned. The good news is that they’ll be putting a free demo in players’ hands in February instead and launch will happen not too long after in April.
