A recent update to People Can Fly’s co-op RPG shooter Outriders is reportedly buggy, it’s causing some players to lose valuable assets acquired after countless hours of playtime.
The new looter shooter has had a rough start following its launch. Drawing mostly from technical issues, the game suffers from instability problems that are causing players erratic experiences during play. Game crashes and disconnections being commonplace issues. Worse still, and adding to the problem, are those who were not able to play the game at all. The issue was then going so far as to be aggravated following cross-play implementation between consoles and PC. Consequently, raising the chances of someone getting unceremoniously cut out of the game’s loop.
An earlier announced game update inevitably evoked hope that the game’s fundamental issue be fixed. Which had been a welcome thought to those who grew fond of the game from a fresh release. But instead of a complete solution, the patch seems to also add a major headache to it. As it appears, many players have been reporting about having their inventories wiped out, simply after getting the update.
Outriders’ developer People Can Fly has already sent out an apology and promised to address the issue among those affected.
