Outriders Inventory Wipe Finally Fixed?

Outriders Inventory Wipe Finally Fixed?

Outriders continues to have problems and bugs addressed by People Can Fly. The more glaring and obviously scary and frustrating bug was the chance of having all of your inventory wiped due to a crash. This is obviously concerning for two reasons: First, crashes continue to happen and make gameplay with others a challenge, and Second, losing all of your inventory is probably the worst thing that could happen in a game like Outriders. People Can Fly has deployed another patch that they hope will be another step toward it no longer happening and restoration of lost loot is still TBD.

What did they say?

“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.”

Good to see response but also concerned for those who are waiting to have their inventories restored. How long will people wait before they start a new character or give up?

How will it work?

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.

What about restoration?

“While we are confident that the patch will prevent inventory wipes in future, we do want to use the weekend to continue monitoring the situation and ensure that no more players are encountering any related issues before we move onto the restoration process.

As soon as we are satisfied by the patch’s effectiveness, we will share extra details including timelines of our upcoming Inventory Restoration process.”

It’s great to see a commitment to restoring inventory, but it’s getting long in the tooth for many players and may end up landing as a “too little too late” sort of situation.
