A demo for Outriders was released in February 2020, giving players the chance to play the Prologue of the game, as well as some more content after it.

Overall, there is about three hours worth of content and any progress that is made will be carried over to the full game, meaning you won't need to replay the Prologue again and can jump straight into where you left off once the game launches on April 1.

Players who try out the demo will receive a free 'Slick and Smooth' emote to use in-game.
