Outriders Delayed Again, Free Demo Coming Next Month
Square Enix and People Can Fly have been showing off their upcoming co-op sci-fi shooter Outriders for some time now, and while fans have been excited to get their hands on it, the devs had to delay the launch until February of this year. That said, it appears more time is needed as the game has been delayed yet again, but there is a free demo coming out next month.
Taking to Twitter, the developers offered up a bit of news. “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,” they said. They followed this up by revealing that there will be a free demo released on February 25th, a few weeks after the original delayed release date. That’s when they broke the news that the game will now be arriving on April 1st.

“We will spend this extra time fine tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch,” the devs continued. As for the demo that will be arriving next month, it will offer players the opportunity to enjoy the first few hours of Outriders before release. During those few hours, all four classes can be played in both single player and co-op, and players will be able to migrate their character and progress to the full game when it launches.
Outriders is currently in development and expected to launch on April 1st for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and new-gen consoles. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
