Outriders Demo Content
All four Classes will be available for players to choose from in the Demo, these classes are Trickster, Devastator, Pyromancer, and Technomancer. And there will be 6 available character slots that you can use to create more characters, allowing you to try out all of the classes.
Single-Player or Multiplayer
Before you start the game and choose to play via Multiplayer, you must choose your Class. From there, you can start the game via Single-Player or Multiplayer. At any time, you can switch between the two, and if you are playing co-op mode, you can invite two more players to form a team of three members. Just take note that when you are playing in co-op, the difficulty gets higher, but at the same time, the loot you acquire is better.
Players can progress up to World Tier 5. World Tier is the dynamic difficulty system of the game. At level 5, your chance for higher rarity gear is increased, but the drop chance for Legendary Gear is still extremely low. Learn more about World Tier by checking our World Tier page.
Skills & Character Level
Your Character levels are capped to Level 7. This will allow you to earn your chosen class's 4th ability and be able to mix and match your active skills in the demo. This will also allow you to earn 2 Class Points that you can apply to your Traits.
The demo supports a Crossplay experience in its beta feature, meaning the game allows you to play with your friends and matchmake with other players who are playing the demo on a different platform. By default, when you start the demo, the crossplay function will be toggled off, so if you want to enable crossplay, head over to the Options > Gameplay > and toggle on "Enable Crossplay". You can play with other players who are on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Series X.
The Outriders Demo features the Prologue and Opening Chapter of the game for the main campaign, and apart from that, there will be Side Quests that are replayable. The demo runs up until the showdown with Gauss, the first rival Altered who may be even more dangerous than you. Some side missions unlock after defeating Gauss so you will be able to go back and explore the world.
The demo features character customization where you can create the look of your character and alter it at any given time when you are at your camp. Choose various hairstyles, make-up, and cosmetics such as piercings, markings, hair color, war paints, and more.
