Xbox and Square Enix have announced that sci-fi RPG shooter Outriders will be available on Xbox Game Pass for PC and Microsoft Store today.
The game, which originally launched back in April, includes full Cross Play support. This means you can squad up with players on the other versions on console and PC. The companies have even confirmed via the Xbox Wire that you’ll be able to transfer progress between the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S version and this Windows version. However, you are unable to transfer progress to any other PC or PlayStation version.
All being said, Josh wasn’t a huge fan of the game when it first launched. He said in his review that “Outriders is at its most fun—flighty bursts of action, in between the lulls of loading screens (usually after a server drop) and minutes spent fumbling with loot before the next fight.” Has time, and a multitude of patches since then improved things? It’s at least a lot less expensive a risk for PC players to find out now.
Outriders is available via the Microsoft Store and for Xbox Game Pass for PC and Ultimate subscribers from today. Interestingly enough, the Xbox Wire post also teases “exciting updates” on the game soon, so keep an eye out for more.
