It's official! After being heavily teased late last week, it's now been confirmed that Square Enix's co-op shooter Outriders will launch as part of Xbox Game Pass on April 1st for console and Android. Don't you just love Game Pass?

For those who are unaware, Outriders is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe, combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets. The game is developed by People Can Fly of Gears of War: Judgement and Bulletstorm fame.

If you fancy trying it before April 1st rolls around, you can get access to a free Outriders demo right now on Xbox, which allows you to try out a good few hours of the game in multiplayer - and your progress will carry over!

As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet.

With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal.
