Outriders Demo Progress

If you’ve been playing the Outriders demo, you’ll be happy to know your progress does transfer to the full game. While there is no update for the demo, you will need to download the full game, and you can pick up where you left off.

There have been some improvements made since the demo, as developer People Can Fly have shared they have fixed bugs for weapons, enemies and also tweaked the loot drops. Crossplay is on by default.

What to Expect from Outriders

Outriders in case you have missed it, is a co-op shooter RPG that takes players to the planet of Enoch as a “last chance”, where humanity plans to colonise after Earth becomes inhabitable. It offers four different classes to play which are PyromancerTricksterDevastator, and Technomancer.  Each have their own sets of Skills that are based on the character’s Anomaly Power and can inflict Enemies with Status effects. There are eight status effects in total, Ash, Bleed, Burn, Vulnerable, Freeze, Toxic, Weakness, and Slow.

You can kit out your character with a number of weapons, armor and mods. Mods add additional effects/buffs to your weapons and gear. While mods are easy to slot, Rare equipment only has one slot, while Epic or Legendary have two. You can check out more about Mods on our Outriders wiki.
