In addition to the announcement of February release date, Square Enix also made their next-gen plans official for Outriders. The publisher is offering a free upgrade from PlayStation 4 versions to PlayStation 5. They’ll be doing the same for Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S via Smart Delivery.

As an added bonus, Square Enix also revealed that Outriders will be feature cross-play across all platforms, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, XSX/S, Stadia and PC.

“We’re very happy to announce that we can offer full cross-play support and a free next-gen upgrade plan for OUTRIDERS players. The great thing about this system is that even if you’re not picking up your PS5 or XSX quite yet, we’ve got you covered and there’s no need to wait. If you buy the current-gen version of OUTRIDERS, we’ll give you the next-gen version for free,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.

“We’re taking a little bit longer to ensure players have the best possible experience with OUTRIDERS, we’re also including new features like Cross-Play which will make our game much more accessible on all platforms,” added Lee Singleton, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios.

Outriders will officially launch on February 2, 2021 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Stadia.
