It’s so easy to carry the progress from the Outriders demo to the whole game

After delay and a month-long demo period, looter-shooter Outriders is out today for pretty much all platforms except Switch. If you played the demo, you can advance to the main game if you are on the same platform, something developer People Can Fly made clear from the jump. But it’s amazing how seamless the transfer process is. It just … happens.

Actually. It’s that simple.

Once you have downloaded the entire game and logged in, you will see all the characters (up to six) you created during the demo. You keep all your equipment and currency in the game. You want to be right where you were, historically. On PlayStation 5, I was even able to use the snazzy activity card feature to jump directly into the story “Talk to Jakub to go to the First City”, where the demo ends.

However, there is a limitation on the PC. You will not be able to continue your progress from a demo on Steam to a complete game on the Epic Games Store. And it’s worth making clear progress related to your platform, rather than your account – you can’t continue the progress of a PS5 demo if you grab the game via Xbox’s Game Pass.

That People Can Fly has allowed a simple data transfer is refreshing. Such ease is not always the case. You expect beta progress to be wiped out for the entire game (see: Avengers), but that does not mean that the same principle applies to a solid demo. Smooth continuation like this is a pretty good selling point, and should make it more likely that more players will pay to pick up the game where the demo ends.

As far as demos go, is Outriders one offers a pretty decent portion of the game, including the cutscene-heavy prologue and the entire first chapter, complete with all side quests and a labor-intensive social hub. The prologue is admittedly banal, but when you get your strength at the beginning of chapter one, the game opens and Outriders becomes one of those no-holds-barred games – unless you know you have to, because it’s a demo. (After completing the prologue for the first time, you will be able to create a new character at the beginning of chapter one.)

Outriders is currently available on Game Pass for Xbox consoles. It is not included in the Game Pass PC library. We will have more thoughts about the whole game in the next few days.
