Outriders Dev Provides Update On Inventory Wipe Issue, Temporary Workaround

While Outriders has enjoyed a fairly successful launch, that hasn’t stopped the Square Enix-published title from experiencing its share of crashes, bugs, and overall stability issues. The first post-launch patch for Outriders helped resolve some of these problems, though players are still coming across a particularly troublesome issue that is causing inventory wipes. Now, developer People Can Fly has issued a statement addressing its latest efforts to combat the bug while also offering a temporary workaround.

Outriders developer People Can Fly took to Twitter today to address the ongoing inventory wipe issue currently plaguing the player base. The statement begins with the developer announcing that “additional preventative measures” have been applied to the servers in order to help guard against inventory wipes. Unfortunately, said measures have only reduced the occurrence of the issue, though the team is looking to “lock in additional countermeasures.”

The good news is that there is now a temporary workaround for those experiencing the inventory wipe issue, though it is admittedly a rather ham-fisted one. If players notice that their gear has disappeared, the developer suggests that the Outriders game be immediately force closed, then rebooted. This ‘fix’ is presumably done to revert a character to the most recent autosave, though the developer doesn’t provide any additional info. Those that need to report that they’ve encountered the bug can do so right here.

Outriders is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
