On the occasion of the fifth “transmission” of Outriders, Square Enix presented all the details of the demo that will be available for download as of this Thursday, February 25th. The cooperative RPG action developed by People Can Fly will then be released on April 1st.
The Outriders demo will allow you to discover the entire opening chapter, with not only the main campaign but also replayable side quests. This represents three hours of gameplay according to Square Enix, with the possibility to try out the four classes of the game (Tellurist, Pyromage, Technomage, and Illusionist) and to play cooperatively with up to three players.
Also note that cross-play is supported between Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series in this demo (Stadia and Epic Games Store will be added to the list at the official launch of the game). You will have to go through the game’s options to activate it. Finally, it will be possible to transfer your progress to the full game, scheduled for April 1st.
The replay of the fifth broadcast of Outriders can be found on YouTube, and the part dedicated to the demo is viewable below:
