People Can Fly has announced that the Outriders release date has been pushed to April 1, 2021, but to compensate, the studio is releasing a free demo for the game on February 25. Here’s the full message posted to Twitter:
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 25th 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 1st 2021 (no joke!). We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.
So there you have it, folks. Outriders is now coming out for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on April 1.
