Just over a year ago, Outriders charged onto the scene. A looter-shooter by People Can Fly, Outriders tries to straddle the line between an always-online non-live-service title and a traditional multiplayer shooter. With Worldslayer, Outriders brings more loot, new story content, and more. But the question remains: is it worth your money?
When Outriders released just over a year ago, players all over the world were introduced to the dangerous land of Enoch, and their unique brand of God-like beings known as the Altered. Now, People Can Fly has a new paid expansion on the way, and if our short preview of Worldslayer is any indication of what's to come, you better prepare yourselves for a whole 'lotta slaying.
There's a brand new update for Outriders coming tomorrow, and it will make multiple major changes to the game. New Horizon changes Expeditions, makes legendary items less grindy to acquire, balances skills, and improves multiplayer.
The folks at People Can Fly, the developers behind Outriders, claimed through an investor note they haven't been paid royalties from publisher Square Enix, pointing to lack of profitability.
Outriders finally received its patch last week which brought about improved matchmaking which now ignores AFKs, an improved sign-in process on Xbox, and more.
The latest Outrider's patch, originally set to release yesterday, has been delayed to Thursday. The team at People Can Fly provided additional information on the delay.
It's nice to be appreciated, but in Outriders, some players were a little unhappy that the appreciation package given to them by developer People Can Fly, came with a Legendary Item they already had, or in some cases, no Legendary Item at all. This past week PCF has remedied the situation by re-releasing the Appreciation Package, but this time, players should see a Unique Legendary.
If you're still playing Outriders, you'll know one of the longest standing issues of contention within the community has been Legendary drop rates. Well, a new patch is on the way and will effectively double Legendary drop rates.
A recent update for Outriders has brought about region-based matchmaking to improve connections, plus several other updates. Read on for more details.
Outriders, amidst its myriad issues, saw over 3.5 million players jump into the new IP within its first month of launch, according to Square Enix.
Outriders development team, People Can Fly, addressed an issue that has troubled the player base at large for weeks. Players have been complaining that damage-mitigation from armor, stops working. Some players have found that unequipping your armor and requipping it will remedy the issue temporarily, but results have been mixed. PCF, in a recent tweet, noted that they are hot on the trail of this bug, and hope to have it fixed very soon.
