Square Enix has announced today that Outriders will be releasing on February 2nd, 2021 on PS4, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Google’s Stadia. What’s more is that players on any platform will be able to play with others, regardless of what platform they are on. Cross-gen, and cross-play, then.
If you buy the game on PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to upgrade to the next-gen PS5 or Xbox Series X|S version at no additional cost.
“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.
