Square Enix has announced that the new RPG Shooter from People Can Fly (who previously worked on Gears of War Judgment and Bulletstorm) and Square Enix External Studios (the minds behind Sleeping Dogs and Just Cause) will be available on February 2nd 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X with a Google Stadia version later in the year.
The game will support cross-platform compatibility across all platforms. Players who pick up the current-gen version of the game, either PS4 or Xbox One, will benefit from a free upgrade to next-gen.
Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios, said:
“We’re very happy to announce that we can offer full cross-play support and a free next-gen upgrade plan for Outriders players. The great thing about this system is that even if you’re not picking up your PS5 or XSX quite yet, we’ve got you covered and there’s no need to wait. If you buy the current-gen version of *OUTRIDERS*, we’ll give you the next-gen version for free“
Lee Singleton, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios, added:
“We’re taking a little bit longer to ensure players have the best possible experience with Outriders, we’re also including new features like Cross-Play which will make our game much more accessible on all platforms.”
