People Can Fly continue to address the inventory wipe issue experienced by many players in Outriders. This latest update aims to be a more permanent solution to the issue.

People Can Fly have previously tackled this issue over the weekend and outlined a gear restoration plan. They also pushed a workaround safeguard of sorts earlier this week. However, it looks like the developers have pushed out a patch to resolve the issue.

The patch has been released to Steam, Epic, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms, so pretty much every platform experiencing this issue should have this fix. The team did publish some important information you should know going into the patch,

  • 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.

The Outriders devs note that they will continue to monitor the situation throughout the weekend. If you happen to run into any more issues, be sure to contact them. As such, this may not be the last communication and action taken to deal with the issue. Stay tuned.
