Just recently, the development studio People Can Fly released a demo of the third-person shooter Outriders. With their help, fans should have the opportunity to take a closer look at what's going on in the game before the release. The rush was apparently great: As the team at Reddit.com has announced, the demo already has more than two million downloads.
To get the trial version of Outriders (buy now € 57.94 ) To improve further, the developers plan to release several updates in the near future. Among other things, these are intended to solve the connection problems that some players are currently struggling with. Matchmaking should also take place much faster in the future, which should result in shorter waiting times.

These changes are especially important with regard to the release of the release version on April 1, 2021 on the PC and consoles. By then at the latest, the team wants to have solved the biggest technical problems. Here is an excerpt of the planned changes:
Changes to the demo
- A backend update to the demo will be done during short maintenance on Friday, March 5th at 3pm GMT. This will affect all platforms.
- This change should be quite seamless and will not require you to download a patch. We are pre-announcing it now in order to give your advance notice of the changes.
- Some of these changes, specifically those related to enemies, are in response to feedback we've seen coming in from players as well as what our own backend metrics are showing us.
- Other changes are intended to only affect the demo, and may not be implemented in the full launch build.
- We would like to issue an explanatory note of caution before getting into the changes: While we have balanced the main game with a certain progression system, this progression may be impacted by heavy farming of gear and / or mods in the demo. As some players are front-loading a lot of that progression (such as by trying to fill their mod library or acquire multiple legendaries) within the demo content already, their experience of parts of the main game may well be impacted.
- Of course, it's every player's decision how to play the game for themselves and we do not want to prevent people from farming the demo for gear if they enjoy it. However, we would like to ensure that this process is not overly simplistic, easy, or prone to exploitation.
