Anyone who initially purchases the title for the PS4 or Xbox One can look forward to the opportunity to upgrade their copy to the corresponding next-gen version free of charge.
In recent news, it was confirmed that the title won’t have any kind of microtransactions and neither it will have Denuvo DRM.
Outriders takes place in a dark science fiction world and is officially described as a “brutal and bloody combat combines frenetic gunplay, violent powers and deep RPG systems to create a true genre hybrid. Play single-player or join up to two friends in drop-in drop-out co-op as you tackle the horrors of a hyper-evolved planet.”
