There is a limited time offer for Outriders on Steam

Outriders, Square Enix's foray into the looter-shooter genre, is free to play on Steam this week. Although Outriders has always been available as a free demo, this limited-time free play event allows players to take the game as far as they can.

Square Enix published Outriders in April 2021, created by Polish developer People Can Fly. People Can Fly is best known for games such as Painkiller and Bulletstorm, as well as collaborations with Epic Games on Fortnite and Gears of War.

As a looter-shooter in the same vein as Destiny and Borderlands, Outriders allows players to choose one of four classes with a variety of abilities and skill trees to customize their playstyle and battle increasingly difficult content. Despite bugs and some poor design choices, the game received average reviews, with players enjoying the gunplay and loot.

Outriders will be free on Steam from June 20 to June 23. According to reports, players have been able to complete the campaign in approximately 12 hours, although it will likely take closer to 30 hours if players explore and complete side content such as side quests, bounties, and hunts.

Furthermore, a three-day window to play the game without limits should allow players to experience much of the game's content beyond the free demo. Outriders demo can be played for as long as you like, but the content is limited to the prologue and first chapter. It takes around three hours to reach level 7 in the demo.

As part of this free play period, Outriders is promoting the upcoming Worldslayer DLC. Worldslayer will introduce a standalone campaign along with new enemies and environments.

New Legendary Armor sets will be introduced in Worldslayer, some of which will be available to all four classes. The new PAX tree system in Worldslayer lets players create separate skill trees for each class. Players can use PAX points to activate nodes from two branches, allowing them to come up with hybrid builds or further specialize their character.
