PSA; Outriders is not coming to Gamepass PC

1 : Anonymous2021/03/15 15:34 ID: m5nbgk

The marketing and deal is clearly geared to console and explicitly says Xbox Game Pass. Don’t be a bitter PC player as outside of a week ago before this was even a thought, many had no problem paying full price.

you can use it on xcloud though for people who have the bandwidth

I'm explicitly getting it on PC despite it being on game pass because now I can have it on both and play with my wife for the price of 1

4 : Anonymous2021/03/15 20:23 ID: gr1vsc2

Well I would have paid the full price anyway, seems like a good game to get together with friends for some expedition farming in the next years.

Gamepass is... good if you have the time, but in the last 3 months I was able to finish Halo 1 and play a little bit of Forza Horizon 4.

I want to know this is 100% true. I already have it preordered but I want to be very clear if I should cancel it.

If it’s not i wont cancel my preorder, I just want to know.

thrilled to announce that Outriders will be available on Console and Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) with Xbox Game Pass on day one!

It's not coming to PC. It's not even on the PC MSFT Game Store.

Maybe it could happen one day but as of now that's not the case.

Good to know. Wish they weren’t so ambiguous in most articles.

I’ll be keeping my steam preorder, I’m excited about this game.

ID: gr1v07j

It's only on Xbox game pass so keep your pre-order off it's on the pc

6 : Anonymous2021/03/15 18:11 ID: gr1dyn5

Too many lost Steam sales if they did that.

7 : Anonymous2021/03/15 21:17 ID: gr22xfy

oh well, i'll buy it on steam. wasn't impressed at all with it on series x.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/15 22:58 ID: gr2bqyz

Gods, can you imagine all the cheaters flooding everyone's cross play games if this was (relatively) free for PC? This is the right move.

ID: gr2d3t6

GamePass isn't free though...

Added clarity via parenthetical.

Why do they treat the PC game pass so bad? We're still waiting for EA Access or whatever it's called to be on the pc GP, it's been on the console one for months now

ID: gr18s7w

Prob costs them alot more.

For example, outriders on game pass for PC fks over steam (main PC market) and epic. So SE prob wants a shit ton more to put it in for PC whereas Xbox has no competitors to worry bout

ID: gr2aho8

There are millions of people paying for Ultimate on PC. So, just stop with the cost crap. It costs more on console because it's going for $70 on console while it's cheaper on PC still...

ID: gr26fa9

I've been very happy with the selection of games on PC Game pass, but I also feel that it's much less valuable with the amount of high quality third party games that is always going to the console version without a PC version.

I wish they would try harder at keeping both versions equal in terms of titles.

I'm still anxiously waiting on EA Play for PC, it's been on console for months now.

ID: gr18vup

PC is just a more fickle market. You can’t call it treating them badly. As for the EA Access, who knows what deals were behind the scenes for that.

Check out the square enix Reddit. They posted a big bit about those that want to cancel a preorder on Xbox.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/15 17:46 ID: gr1aimc

i had a problem paying full price, and now i have more of a problem... yeesh this monday, first a bug eats my first leggo after 50 hours and now this...

ID: gr1p977

You don’t have to buy it.

ID: gr1pm1y

Are you complaining about loot in a game you aren’t willing to buy? Doesn’t matter if you don’t have game dude.

ID: gr27hms

im complaining about loot in a game i would like to buy but its too damn expensive

13 : Anonymous2021/03/15 17:36 ID: gr19447

Clunky Xbox app on pc, paying customer, less service. I’m not bitter but they treat their pc player base like crap. EA play December? Lol! The optics suck here.

Not getting your moneys worth ? Then dont subscribe....

Gamepass is Gamepass. No matter the platform. The reality is PC GP users get an inferior product, yet pay the same price, that’s my issue.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/15 20:10 ID: gr1tz6e

I mean, there is a bright side though to it not being on PC Game Pass; The Microsoft Store sucks ass.

ID: gr29iv7

MS store could definitely be better but I don't have the pure hatred of it that many gamers seem to.

Granted, I haven't used it a ton, but I've played a handful of titles on it (Forza Horizon 3+4, at least two Gears of War games, Bloodstained, Sea of Thieves, Outer Worlds, and probably a few other things I'm forgetting) and never had any problems with it.

The one glaring exception was the debacle that was Phantasy Star Online 2, where any patch to the game could straight-up break the client and cause it to bury itself on my hard drive, forcing a format and reinstall for that drive. But I don't even blame that on MS Store so much as I blame Microsoft for forcing the MS store environment upon a hack-job of an 8-year-old online service game that was never originally designed with that store in mind.

It can easily be found for 30-35 euros for pc on shady key sites anyway, which i think is the fair price for this game if the demo was anything to go by

ID: gr28dxt

Don't support key resellers. Usually end up costing the devs money having to deal with key issues on their own dime.

ID: gr28rz4

When you try to sell 30 euros games at 60, you only get bought on a key site or on 50% sales, sorry.

ID: gr2772h

Have a link? Can't find it for less than ~40€ atm, if you add all the bullshit service fees they add to the price. I think it was cheaper a couple days ago?

ID: gr2djcb

It can be bought for $46 from a legit 3rd party seller like GreenManGaming as well. Best of both worlds. You save some money and still support the devs, without the risk of supporting criminals that comes with buying from key resellers.

How is bitter to want this 100% confirmed...

It's not coming to PC. It's not even on the PC MSFT Game Store.

ID: gr1015z

Its been confirmed in the Square Enix post dude.... your just fighting whats been clearly stated many times to you. .people tried to help you gave you the information but you keep fighting them, are you expecting a rep to respond to your post? As that likely won't happen as they have alrdy made it clear

17 : Anonymous2021/03/15 21:48 ID: gr25qn6

Don't be bitter? So, don't be bitter that PC players who're paying for a service are getting screwed out of this deal... Makes sense.
Another reason for me not to get this game.

ID: gr267om

Pc players dont have to pay for gamepass so I don't see how they are getting screwed.

ID: gr2e46r

Nobody is paying for GamePass specifically for this game. If they were then they were doing so on speculation, not official information. If you don't think GamePass is worth your money then don't subscribe.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/15 19:22 ID: gr1ngdh

that ok, the game pass for PC is garbage, that launcher and social system is 20 years behind the times.

ID: gr1uypk

ahaha +1

19 : Anonymous2021/03/15 20:21 ID: gr1vkii

It's unfortunate it's not coming to PC gamepass, inhad a few friends who were going to hop on board for it. PC controls are much better, I have an Xbox but I don't think I'll play it with a controller

20 : Anonymous2021/03/15 22:20 ID: gr285gt

I can be bitter, as I have no intention of picking up the game at full $60. I don't believe it is worth that much, that said, I still do plan to pick it up once it goes down in price on sale. So they will just have to wait longer to get money out of my pocket.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/15 23:53 ID: gr2grpd

I feel like it's well within my right to be excited about saving $50 bucks. I'm bummed for sure. But fine, I'll buy it when I can

When ever a game has cover ups for anything at all, you know something is up.

History repeats its self over and over with games. We never learn and over and over and over we have fierce keyboard wars where those expressing doubts are attacked by the paladins of the blind order.

I have no idea how this game is going to be once its out but the red light are on and the alarms are on. Remember Steam has a refund option for any time over 2 hours. If you doubt at ALL during those hours get a refund and wait for more info.

Anthem, Cyberpunk, Fallout 76, Star wars BF2, Aliens CO, NmS and on and on and on. What did all these games have in commen? Sketchy PR, sketchy presentations and weird beta/demo pre-release that should have been enough to warn us. When a game sounds sketchy there is a reason to it. Be warned.

ID: gr1vg6b

You are not entirely wrong but this is not really a red flag. Outriders is kind of indie game. Even the demo's purpose is mostly marketing. They are just trying to reach more people. Not everyone knows about Outriders and i think it's a very good game. How many post we saw this week saying ''i didn't heard this before and played the demo today. this is amazing''

ID: gr1h1fv

Lmao if anything this is to dissuade red flags as now you can try it while subscribing to gamepass.

Valve doesn't do deals..
