Outriders will have a free playable demo available starting this Thursday, February 25. The news comes as part of the latest Outriders broadcast, titled “Into the Fray,” which aired earlier today.

Outriders Demo Gameplay

The demo has an estimated playtime of about three hours and will consist of the entire opening chapter of the Outriders campaign. Four classes will be available, including Pyromancer, Devastator, Trickster, and Technomancer. Campaign progress made in the demo will transfer over to the full game, as long as it’s on the same platform.

The Outriders demo will also feature full crossplay support, meaning players can experience the demo with friends regardless of the platform. However, crossplay will be disabled by default, so be sure to enable it in the settings menu once the demo goes live.
