Republished on Wednesday, 15th February, 2023: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of February 2023's PS Plus Extra and Premium lineup. The original text follows. You know what? Outriders is pretty good. Torn apart during
All the details you need
What time does the Outriders demo start? What's included in the Outriders demo? Does progress carry over into the full game? Square Enix will finally lift the lid on its looter shooter title from developer People Can Fly this week with a full demo of Outriders. It's set to contain a lot of content, so you might be wondering...

Riding on the edge
Square Enix hasn't had a great time with its Western arm, has it? Following years of the publisher stating that its Western-developed titles, like Tomb Raider and Deus Ex, had underperformed commercially, it only went and sold off a bunch of studios and corresponding properties to Embracer Group earlier this week, for a relatively...
New campaign, gear, and endgame
Square Enix's looter shooter Outriders is being treated to a huge expansion named Worldslayer that introduces a new campaign, tons of new gear, a level cap increase, and more endgame content on 30th June 2022. This content will be delivered as a paid upgrade for current PlayStation 5, PS4 owners, while new players can...
Full expansion arrives in 2022
Be real for just a second before we go over the details of this update: did you forget that Outriders released this year? Because we sure did! The looter-shooter launched for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on the 1st April, 2021 (cue April Fools jokes), and quite frankly, we've heard bugger all about the title...
3.5 million unique players in the first month
Square Enix is pitching Outriders as its "next big franchise" as the publisher reveals that more than 3.5 million unique players gave the looter shooter a go during its first month on the market. While the statistic doesn't reflect sales, there seems to be enough confidence in the IP and developer People...
Plus balance tweaks
Outriders has enjoyed a largely positive launch on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, but the experience hasn't always been smooth for the new looter shooter. The game currently suffers from a number of issues on Sony's systems, ranging from minor bugs to full-on crashes. Fortunately, Outriders' first big update is set to launch...
Outriders has proven more popular than perhaps we expected, moving over 50 per cent of its physical copies on PlayStation 5 in the UK – and setting some impressive concurrent records on Steam. It would seem, perhaps, that not even Polish developer People Can Fly accounted for this kind of success, as its servers have been up and down...
Plus other severe punishments
Developer People Can Fly shall be clamping down hard on cheaters in Outriders when it launches next week, but not by immediately banning them. Those identified as having cheated will have a "discreet but visible watermark" placed on their HUD at all times, meaning any gameplay they share online can immediately be...
Back on the grind
While its chances of posting impressive sales numbers on PlayStation platforms are now somewhat slim, Square Enix's Outriders will still have hardcore players placing the game's Platinum Trophy in their sights. Like other looter shooters, however, it'll require some grinding to unlock the 43 other trinkets that build up to that...
Full price versus subscription fee
Ah, good ol’ Outriders: a PlayStation 5 and PS4 shooter that we, well, didn’t like when we played the demo earlier this month. Our resident looter shooter boffin Robert Ramsey suggested that the release is in for a “rough launch” when it deploys on 1st April – well, as far as PlayStation platforms go, how...
Developer reflects on demo learnings
The Outriders demo has been out for nearly two weeks now, meaning PlayStation players have had the chance to get a good grasp of what this looter shooter will have to offer and form a solid opinion based on that experience. Some users have loved it, while others aren't so excited about what they played. We happen...
OUTRIDERS is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe.
As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet.
With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal.
Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, OUTRIDERS offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter developers in the industry – People Can Fly.
