According to the official changelog, the latest Outriders update added various quality of life changes, tweaks, changes, and more.
Recently, the game was released with positive reviews. Unfortunately, since the release, players are experiencing several issues with the game.
PC & Console Platforms:
Once platforms have been updated to the same patch version, cross-play across platforms will become viable again
EDIT: 09.04.21 – 19:05 UTC
With the release of this patch, Crossplay between PlayStation and PC is now possible.
Crossplay between Xbox and PC/PlayStation has been temporarily disabled until the Xbox patch has released.
Crossplay between consoles and PC will be fully restored once the Xbox patch has gone live.
Overall stability improvements for the matchmaking service
Will Fix a multiplayer crash that could result in client players having their inventory wiped
Will fix the crash when completing the “A Bad Day” side quest.
Will fix the crash that occurs in No Man’s Land when your language is set to Spanish (Yes, we know. Video game code is a magical thing).
Will fix crash on launch issues
Will include many more “random” crash fixes
We are confident that these fixes will address the majority of crashes reported, as there are only a handful of root causes but the crashes they generate appear in a number of places.
Will fix the HUD disappearing in certain cases
Will fix bugs that interfere with players re-spawning in multiplayer Expeditions
Will fix bugs with players getting stuck on geometry (including when using Gravity Leap) or falling out of the world.
Will change the default matchmaking setting from “Open” to “Closed”.
You will still be able to manually change this setting to “Open” through your game settings
This change will prevent players from joining games where the host didn’t intend to play in multiplayer. It will also cut down on AFK lobbies
This will also help improve matchmaking times, as the queues will be less likely to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of constant matchmaking requests generated by “open” games.
Many other minor fixes and improvements
Will Fix a performance issue where GPU is not being fully utilized. This should help with stuttering and DX11/12 issues
More Outriders patch details are coming.
