Today Square Enix and People Can Fly announced the release date and more details about the cross-gen game Outriders.
The game will launch on Feb. 2 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
It will feature full cross-play among all platforms and free upgrades to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be offered to those who purchase the PS4 and Xbox One versions respectively.
A new trailer was also released, and you can watch it below.
The press release included a comment by Jon Brooke, co-head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.
“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.”
The other co-head, Lee Singleton, also commented.
“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.”

Here’s how the developers describe the game:
“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.”
