You can now enjoy the definitive version of Outriders, the new multiplayer shooter from Square Enix and People Can Fly; In addition, it is also available on Xbox Game Pass.
Updated: The launch of Outriders has been a success. According to independent analyst @BenjiSales, Outriders is the biggest launch ever for Square Enix on Steam. It has surpassed 100,000 simultaneous players in its first hours, the best figure for a paid Square Enix game (not counting games that had free trial sessions days in a weekend and the like).
To give you an idea, it triples the figures of Marvel’s Avengers, which at its absolute peak of simultaneous players on Steam had 31,165 players.
Original news: Announced in 2019, Outriders was one of the first next-gen games to be introduced to the gaming community, boasting a top-tier multiplayer experience on PC and consoles. After a free demo and numerous trailers, the game is now available on multiple platforms.
Developed by People Can Fly and distribute by Square Enix, Outriders is a cooperative multiplayer experience reminiscent of titles like Destiny 2, but with a model far removed from games-as-a-service. It’s available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Play.
Set on the hostile planet Enoch, Outriders presents us with intense games focused on cooperation for 3 players, although it can also be enjoyed alone. As is usual in-hero shooter, we can choose between four different classes, each based on a different element of the scenario.

Of course, it should be noted that Outriders is not a PvP game. This means that it does not consist of games that face players, but rather that you will have to cooperate to defeat waves and creatures controlled by the AI, although of course there is enough variety and some charming cinematic sequences ( here we explain why these are ).
Its creators, People Can Fly (Bulletstorm, Gears of War Judgment) promise that Outriders is also a great experience on PS4 and Xbox One, not just on next-gen consoles. Players can already enjoy it, and there will also be updates and DLC quite frequently.
Outriders is out now (starting today) for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. And remember, if you are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass, you can play this new hero shooter from today and at no additional cost. Prepare your weapons.
