Outriders Demo: Here’s What You Need to Know


Square Enix and People Can Fly are getting ready to unleash the Outriders demo and we’ve got all the details you need to know in order to play. First off the bat, however, we want to clarify (as have the devs several times) that this is a demo version of the game, not a beta experience. It is a free-to-play demo that will be available for PC via Steam and Nvidia GeForce NOW.

Here are the facts:

The demo launches on Thursday, February 25th. You can check your particular time zone below:
