Square Enix announced that the People Can Fly-developed co-op shooter Outriders, is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC on February 2, 2021.
The publisher also confirmed that users on all platforms will be able to play together regardless of what platform they are on using the games’ cross-play features. Additionally, those who purchase the game on current-gen consoles will be able to upgrade from PS4 to PS5 for free and Xbox One to Xbox Series X.
“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,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.
“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,” added Lee Singleton, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.
Outriders is an RPG shooter set in a sci-fi universe. Players will need to create their own character known as “Outrider” to embark on a journey across a hostile planet. The story takes players through a diverse world where they’ll find themselves exploring slums, forest areas, and mountain ranges in pursuit of a mysterious signal. However, during their travels, they will meet intense combat situations and powerful enemies.
