Over the past week or so, some Outriders players have been running into a troublesome bug that could potentially wipe out their entire inventory, leaving them with none of the loot that they may have accrued while playing. People Can Fly and Square Enix promised fans that a fix for this problem was on its way in the near future and previously said that a solution would roll out at some point this week. Well, as of this morning, that new patch has now arrived.
A new update for Outriders just launched across all platforms not long ago that should finally kill off this inventory bug. That means that if you haven't run into this problem for yourself just yet, you shouldn't have to live in fear any longer. However, for those that have already had their inventories get nuked, a separate tweak will arrive today as well. "If your inventory has been impacted, please note that our efforts to restore your items are a separate process from today’s released patch," a representative from Square Enix explained. 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."
