Co-op shooting game Outriders will be released soon. Players who have pre-ordered the game can now download the game on almost all platforms through pre-loading.
When does preloading start? If you have already purchased Outriders, you may have already downloaded the game. Today, March 30, 2021, preloading begins on almost all platforms where you can play the game.
Preloading has been available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X for a long time. You can already load it there.
The preload was released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on March 30th. The player reports that the download has started (via Reddit).
Now, preload is also available on Steam. This was announced on the Outriders official Twitter channel at 6:00 PM CET on March 30th.
According to the current state, there will be no pre-loading in the Epic Games Store.
Besides, the minimum recommended and perfect system requirements for PC games were announced in the tweet. For example, it is recommended to use the following to get a 1080p and 60 FPS gaming experience:
Operating system: Windows 10
Processor: Intel i7-7700 / AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
Memory: 16 GB
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB / AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8 GB
Storage space: 70 GB
You can find other settings in the developer’s tweet.
If you still don’t know if this game is suitable for you, please look at this demo. The Outriders demo will run for some time, and all progress will be reflected in the purchased game.
Download size and release time
How big is the download? If you want to start preloading, you might create a little space if the hard drive is entire. Depending on the platform (via MP1st), the download size should be as follows:
PS4: Approximately 67 GB
PS5: about 46 GB
Xbox Series X | S: Approximately 48 GB
Xbox One: Approximately 61 GB
PC: Approximately 70 GB
Therefore, the NextGen console with a smaller download size has some advantages here. This should satisfy everyone who is slowly running out of storage space.
When will Outriders be released? The official release time of the cooperative shooting game is April 1, 2021. The specific time varies by platform:
You can play it on Xbox and PlayStation consoles from 00:00 on April 1st.
On PC, it can start at 6:00 pm on April 1st.
