This upcoming free-to-play session for Outriders is being done ahead of the upcoming Worldslayer expansion which will release this July.
Outriders: Worldslayer is described as:
Take your existing Outriders to new levels of power as you journey deeper into Enoch, or use the character boost to create a new level 30 Outrider geared up and ready to face off against the powerful Altered – Ereshkigal.
With new horrors to challenge you and new weapons, mods and gear to discover, you’ll be further developing your build through the new PAX class trees, the long-term progression Ascension System and the game changing third mod slots found only on Apocalypse Gear.
Survive the campaign and continue to push through the new Apocalypse difficulty tiers as you face even greater horrors in the Trial of Tarya Gratar, the brand new endgame.
Outriders Worldslayer will release on July 1, 2022 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, and NVIDIA GeForce NOW).
