The demo of Outriders will be available shortly. What you can expect, Square Enix and People Can Fly announced today in a tweet recently.
Square Enix and People Can Fly have revealed a lot of new information about the Outriders demo. It will start next week on February 25, 2021. The two companies explicitly state that this is a demo and not a beta.
The file size of the Outriders demo is 22 GB in the case of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. The PC version has 24 GB. A preload phase is not planned. However, cross-play, which is still in a kind of beta phase, can be activated manually. Square Enix and People Can Fly indicate that the demo will remain available even after the game launches.
The demo of Outriders takes place at the beginning of the game and runs until your showdown with Gauss. Should you defeat him, some side missions will be unlocked. The game’s four classes called Technomancer, Devastator, Pyromancer, and Trickster are available, as are all six character slots.
The level cap of the demo is at level 7, so you can unlock the fourth ability for each class and advance to world level 5. The resources will also be limited up to a certain amount, so that you cannot produce equipment that is too high and transfer these save files to the main game. The demo will not contain any trophies or achievements. But your in-game awards will be carried over to the full version along with your regular progress.
The free demo of Outriders was announced back in January, together with the news that the game has been postponed again – this time to April 1st, 2021.
