Play Outriders — but don’t bother playing alone


Outriders is finally here, and you can play the game just about anywhere. This highly anticipated multiplayer shooter/RPG is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S — and even Xbox Game Pass, if you’re not married to owning your copy forever. Since Outriders supports cross-play multiplayer, you can play with any of your friends, regardless of which system they play on. And, frankly, you should — the game is not nearly as much fun by yourself.

Square Enix provided Tom’s Guide with a review copy of Outriders, and I’ve been slowly but surely working my way through the story campaign for the last two days. I’ve played Outriders before, both at conventions and via online previews. But in those situations, I always had two other players by my side by default. Playing Outriders on my own PS5, multiplayer partners have been a little harder to come by.

On the one hand, this has helped me see the game’s strengths and weaknesses more clearly, as just about anything is more fun with two friends. On the other hand, it’s highlighted that Outriders really needs a full three-person party to fulfill its potential.
