Microsoft has teased that Outriders could be launching on Xbox Game Pass.

In one of their usual teaser emails that get posted on social media, it mentions a "mysterious signal" and a "anomaly", which matches up to what Outriders is about.

Demo

The demo is available now on Xbox platforms, PS4 & PS5, and Steam and is pretty lengthy.

You'll be able to squad up with friends and tackle a load of missions, which can last for up to three hours.

It features all three of the game's classes, which we'll get to below, but doesn't let you progress past level 7 for any character.

Nothing has been announced about whether the demo will still be available when the full Outriders game releases.

Classes

Outriders has four different classes that players can take on.

This includes the Trickster, the Pyromancer, the Devastator, and the Technomancer.

Each of these classes has a full video breakdown released directly from Square Enix. Below is the latest video covering the Pyromancer:

Campaign

Outriders will have a main story in the form of a Campaign that can be played single-player or co-op.

Players will have dialogue tree options when interacting with NPCs, but these choices won't alter the Campaign's story.

While the Outriders Campaign looks like it will be immersive and engaging, it isn't all that the game's gameplay has to offer.
