The Outriders demo is out for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, and PC. And you don’t have to worry about where you play–Outriders supports cross-play between all its platforms, allowing you to connect with your friends wherever they decide to play. That said, you will have to complete a few steps in order to do cross-play multiplayer. Don’t worry; it’s not too hard to do.
First off, you can’t even engage in any form of multiplayer until you complete the prologue. The prologue concludes with the mission in which your character becomes fully Altered, allowing you to pick a class. Upon the completion of this mission, you’ll unlock the first hub area of Outriders, Rift Town. It’s here where you can start teaming up with other players.
You can either summon players to your game or join someone else’s. To do either, you need to access the matchmaking terminal in Rift Town’s garage or click on the “Join A Random Team” or “Play With Friends” buttons from the Lobby. On default settings, you will be limited to only teaming up with others on your platform.
