Fans waiting for that all-important Outriders 1.06 update can start downloading it today.
The entire patch notes from the development team are dedicated to the removal of one major issue, the inventory wipe glitch.
As many fans have already seen, players have been reporting their entire loadout of weapons and gear disappearing from builds and characters.
Worse problems with Outriders being completed blocked have also been reported, and it looks like that problem has not been fixed just yet.
The good news is that Legendary loot will be returning to gamers very soon, with a rotation system being put in place to bring it all back.
And blocked characters should soon become playable again, even if it might take a little while longer.
Here’s is what People Can Fly has confirmed is included in today’s Outriders update, telling fans:
“We have just released a patch on Steam, Epic, Xbox and PlayStation platforms that addresses the bug that has, since the previous update, been causing the inventories of certain players to be wiped.
“If your inventory has been impacted, please note that our efforts to restore your items are a separate process from today’s released patch.
“Restoring the inventory of affected players is still our highest priority, while today’s patch is intended to prevent the issue from continuing to occur.
“The restoration process is run via our server database and does not require a patch to be implemented. We will have news of this very soon.
“For any affected characters currently encountering a “Couldn’t Connect to Server”: these characters will have their inventories returned and they will become fully playable again as soon as our restoration process has completed.”
And here’s a list of warnings and disclaimers that comes with the latest build of Outriders, warning gamers:
With this new patch, some players may occasionally encounter multiplayer connectivity issues followed by inventory items being momentarily invisible. This is a known and only temporary behaviour that is part of our three-step inventory safeguarding measures.
Restarting your game or waiting a few minutes and then restarting your game should make your items appear again.
We aim to address the occurrence of these edge cases in a future patch.
If you do encounter a wipe that occurs after installing the patch and is not resolved following a game restart, please immediately report this in this Edge Case sub-thread.
