Outriders is set to be released this week, with players on all platforms gearing up to play the third-person co-op shooter.

PC players need to know what the requirements are to play Outriders and, as it turns out, there's a way to play without a high-end PC.

The official Twitter account for Outriders posted a tweet addressing the problem for players who may not have a high-end PC. Their answer is the use of NVIDIA Geforce Now.

Geforce Now is a membership-based streaming platform that uses cloud gaming. It allows users to stream cloud-based games to other devices, even if it's a phone or a low-end PC. According to their site, the platforms that are supported include PC laptops, desktops, Mac, SHIELD TV, and Android devices. Users can connect to their game libraries and utilize cloud saves to pick up where they left off on any platform.

In this case, the cloud-based streaming is the answer to playing Outriders without a high-end PC. There are free membership options with more limited access, especially to time. However, the priority membership with more access is $9.99 per month, and it would allow users to play Outriders without a high-end PC.
