PS5 console owners are slowly getting new games upgraded from the PS4, as well as brand new exclusives added regularly each month.
Some are big names, while others are indie hits waiting to make a big ripple on next-gen consoles.
And this month has seen a surprise new demo released before a full version of the game is launched on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
What makes this latest addition a little unique is that the new demo will be running until the full game hits the PlayStation Store.
And not only can fans download it now, but they can keep much of their built up experience for launch day in April.
So if you’re looking for something new to check out, it might be worth downloading Outriders on PS5.
A new IP from Square Enix, Outriders is a cover shooter that has already started to build a fanbase.
And while the new demo is by no means perfect, it does provide plenty of scope for the development team to improve things.
The past week has seen gamers put Outriders through its paces and the rules have been laid out by Square Enix.
You don’t need to pre-order Outriders or register your interest via an email address; Outriders can be found easily on the PS Store.
The Outriders Demo is set to remain available for the foreseeable future, unlike most betas that come and go before a full release date.
The Outriders Demo features the first full chapter, allowing gamers to explore much like other free episodes on the PS4 and PS5.
This includes the early story and tutorials, as well as the remaining mechanics that are introduced in the game.
And the big one for those who are enjoying themselves is that the Outriders carries over to the full game.
That means your character and progress will all be waiting for you in the main game, as well as another big freebie.
If you end up buying Outriders on PS4 and then move over to the PS5, you’ll be able to unlock the next-gen version for free.
It makes it the perfect time to check out the new PS5 demo, as the full game won’t be released until April 1, 2021.
A message from the Outriders team lays out more of the features available as part of the new demo, telling gamers this week:
“All four classes in the game – Trickster, Pyromancer, Devastator, and Technomancer – are available for you to play in the demo. We encourage you to experiment and find your perfect class.
“Will you be a fire-flinging tank capable of soaking up hits as you immolate your enemies? Or will you be a DPS-Devastator jumping into the fray to cause maximum mayhem in the mob? Mix and match abilities, give them a test-run and find what suits you.
“Eventually, you’ll find the class that speaks to you – and when you do, you can start co-op.
“Not only is this the first time you’ll be able to hop into the world of Enoch, but you can also do so with the help of your friends! Outriders supports three-player teams, letting you tackle missions, explore the world and progress through the story together.
“You can find a matchmaking terminal in your camp if you’re looking for squadmates.”
Full cross-play between all compatible platforms is enabled during the demo period, meaning you can play with your friends on different platforms for the length of the three-hour demo and beyond.
