Dumber Together! I am so happy to play with you again.



Yeah, this beta is going to explain everything we need to know. If it sucks, then suspicions confirmed. If it has bug city, suspicions confirmed. Etc.

I hope itís good! I just really want a super fun multiplayer game to chase down those old feelings of goons playing fun stuff together! Thereís a number of games this works for...just give me a fresh one!

And I hear you allóI am the harbinger of death with this poo poo. I own it

But I would like for one of these games, FOR ONCE, to just be good. Just be good. Please just be good!

I like People Can Fly and I hope they know what theyíre doing in 2021.

Check my posts in the cursed thread.

It was the worst thing I found all week and someone made it my avatar.

It's a dude turning his cat inside out from the rear end in a top hat and birthing a cat girl baby and then kissing it.

Looking at it makes me want to die.

I got this one my friends in arms. I got this.

I would currently, going with what we know:

Destiny 2>>Division 2>>>>>>Avengers/Outriders>>>>>>>>>>>>>Anthem

Right now, I think Outriders compares heavily to Avengers. The demo will shine more light on where things really are.

Of course, I hope this game is good. And while thereís some pros, Iím very weary of a lot of cons. And itís scary.

February 25th will probably tell us everything we need to know. The devs themselves are riding heavy on this demo being promising to the players. I havenít seen much in confidence from devs when they talk about it though.

Long story short, for what we know currently and based on video and similarities, this is closer to Marvelís Avengers.

Content related to Outriders coming riiiight after this:

Just real quick, I love you all. Seriously! Even the handful of you who really loving hate how I champion some of these types of games and donít like me for it (I have a thing for loot games of any genre just FYI), itís all good.

Lots of friendships here. And even the ribs I get from yíall, theyíre ok! I completely get it and letís face it, itís just part of living. I can take the jokes and I can take the heat too if itís like that. No worries on my end!

Before I digress because this ainít about me, itís about the game (and maybe making some new friends and goon pals along the way for ALL of us?), so letís do the drat thing.

Content in Prep for Demo

Few bullet points Iím going to highlight from some leisure reading, video watching and catching up on the People Can Flyís Outriders discord:

1) The endgame content is basically Strikes from Destiny. You can max out at lvl 30 but enemies in the final world tier go up to 50+. Lootsplosion for reaching the end and itís very Diablo Baal run-esque, The Division Amherst Apartment runs and etc for those who ran Challenging diff in that repeatedly, endlessly running strikes in Destiny 2 as if they were your endgame content.

A) Itís basically kill all the enemies in the map and get to the end from what we know. You heal on kills and if you die, itís a wrap unless you get revived.

B) For the demoís sake, your progress WILL transfer to final game. They do have a level cap for the 25th, and not all loot will be unlocked, obviously.

C) High world tiers (14-15) will not be soloable unless you got the best of the best gear, according to the devs. My reply: PCF, have you seen my friends who have the uncanny ability to never log off and farm the best gear in a couple days?!?

2) Story + Side Quests has been quoted at about 40 hours to fully complete. I usually chop this in half with gaming today and Iíll say, expect 20 hours before itís expedition time.

3) PCF (People Can Fly) have let people demo the game early dating back to last year and told them to put out and say whatever they want about the game, which I do find interesting at least. The piece I have seen them gush about the most since I started following last year is LOOT. They feel strongly about the loot variety and excitement around it. Iíll just comment, aesthetically, I do really like it.

4) Lastly, for now, we havenít heard about a preload. Or what platforms this will be on. Speculation from posts Iíve seen say itíll pop up on all platforms and go from there. You do gotta have a Square Enix account. We donít know how long the demo will go for.

Oh, hereís some gear stuff:

I know a couple people with Stadia and have tried it out on a decent internet connection, and the technology really is kinda there for more casual players if you have decent internet.

If Stadia worked like Netflix or GamePass where you subscribe to a catalogue I think it'd be doing a lot better, it's a huge lovely joke because of their atrocious business decisions.

Except Anthem is better than Avengers. Not that Anthem is good, just that Avengers is that bad. So probably a safe bet that Outriders will be on the Avengers tier.

Yo, some shizz about the demo dropped today. Hereís the shizz

DEMO DETAILS ARE HERE. THIS DEMO IS FREE. PLAY IT SO WE CAN TALK ABOOT IT February 25th.



quote:

Hey everyone,

With just one week from the launch of the demo, we wanted to share more details about it with you as promised.

Without further ado, here we go:


This will be a Demo, NOT a Beta.

It is entirely free. No purchase or pre-order required.

The demo is available in Germany on PlayStation, Xbox and PC (Steam). To download the demo for free on PlayStation you need a PS+ subscription.

If you do not have PS+ in Germany, the demo is also available but you will have to undergo the usual age verification process.

The Demo will release at these SINGLE GLOBAL RELEASE times: (see pic above)

The demo will be available on the following Platforms:
PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (Steam & streaming with NVIDIA GeForce NOW)

The download size for the demo will be:
PC: Minimum 24GB (possibly more after decompression)

Consoles: Minimum 22GB (possibly more after decompression)

Pre-loading is not currently planned to be available.

Crossplay will be available in the demo, but it will be in beta form and will need to be manually enabled via your settings.

There is no time limit, either for playing or for accessing it prior to launch. The demo is also planned to remain live beyond launch.

The demo includes the gameís prologue & opening chapter. This means that gear & enemies that you come across will be the early game variants. The further you get in the full Outriders story, the more twisted, exotic and powerful both gear & enemies will become

The demo runs up until the showdown with Gauss, the first rival Altered who may be even more dangerous than you.

Some side missions unlock after defeating Gauss so you will be able to go back and explore the world.

The demo includes all 4 classes and 6 character slots.

This means you can try out every class without needing to delete any characters.

Your Character levels are capped to Level 7

This will allow you to earn your classes 4th ability and be able to to mix and match your active skills in the demo.

This will also allow you to earn 2 skill points that you can apply to your skill tree.

You can progress up to World Tier 5.

World Tiers are our dynamic difficulty system. At level 5, your chance for higher rarity gear is increased, but the drop chance for Legendary Gear is still extremely low.

Resources will be capped at a certain (generous) amount in order to safeguard balancing for when you go into the main game.

Resources are mainly used within our extensive crafting system but can also be traded for better gear from the armorers in the game. The crafting system unlocks in the full game once youíre at a point beyond the demo content, but you can save your resources for use with that system.

You will be able to transfer your progress if you play the main game on the same platform account (Platforms are PlayStation / Xbox / Steam).

Progress will not transfer between the Demo on Steam and the Full Game on the Epic Store.

The demo will not include any trophies or achievements, but your in-game accolades will transfer along with your regular progress.

You are free to stream any part of the the Demo. No restrictions.

Please note that there is a trailer that plays at the end of the demo. As this trailer contains licensed music, we would recommend caution when streaming this section.

Any more questions? Let us know!

Adding an edit: The demo is live from February 25th even past April 1st for launch. Once the demo goes live next week, itís live for good. So if you are in Texas (Iím thinking of you all and sending good vibes and trying to help a friend I have there who needs it), and the 25th or even the following week sucks for you, you can play this thing in March.

Second edit: Iím gonna dog on this game until demo because thereís so many red flags. But Iíll say something positive because I like to be happy: Itís refreshing to see the devs really proud of their work and doing something different to release this demo and leave it up for good. Not trying to hide any problems or flaws. They feel good about this. Iím starting to get a bit more JAZZED UP on this demo next week.

If nothing else, the conditions of the Demo seem like it'll let everybody give it a fair shake, so good for them in being confident in their product.

I'll most likely give it a shot, because why not?

That seems unlikely until the 25th at the earliest when people start being able to record their own stuff. We're not miracle workers, you know.

I said to myself, ďThis game looks neat. Not GaaS, from a studio I like, and it has an ending. Sounds neat. ď

Then I saw dear friend ICR felt the same.

Now I wonder: I have followed them into battle in Marvel Heroes, in Anthem, in Avengers. Do I get hurt again?

You drat right (probably) because I have more money than sense lately but we will see how I feel after the demo. I mean I bought Destiny 1 after the demo going ďwell surely this is just a demo of the MoonĒ when it totally wasnít.
