To get it to work, the owner begins by launching their chosen game, then invites their chums to play using Steam's Friends List.

Developer People Can Fly's co-operative sci-fi looter-shooter Outriders is set to launch on 1st April this year, and those eager to learn more ahead of its full release will have the opportunity to put the early game through its paces next week, courtesy of a new demo. Outriders' demo - People Can Fly emphasises it's a demo, rather than a beta, meaning it's completely free, doesn't require a pre-order or pre-purchase, and isn't limited-time - will launch for PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam & streaming with Nvidia GeForce Now) next Friday, 26th February, at 5pm in the UK. Console owners will be looking at a minimum download of 22GB, while the PC demo weighs in at a slightly beefier 24GB, and once installed, players can access all four of Outriders' classes, which can be taken for a test run across its prologue and opening chapter - meaning gear and enemies will be early game variants, rather than their more exotic later-game counterparts.
