Important Patch Release Info

As mentioned this Tuesday, while testing this patch we came across a couple of crashes. Community discussions indicate that these issues appear, for the most part, to already be present in the game.

We are therefore releasing this patch in the knowledge that these issues exist and the belief that this patch will not introduce them.

There is a risk, however, that this patch may increase the frequency of one or both of these issues, but this is something we will only be able to determine with data analysis after the patch releases. Please do also be sure to let us know if you experience any increased crashing following this patch.

Fixes for these issues are already being worked on to be implemented at the next available opportunity.Patch Notes

  • Improved and faster Xbox Sign in Process
    • Please let us know if your experience signing in on Xbox has improved!
  • Improved Matchmaking to reduce the chance of matching with an AFK player
    • Players that are AFK (not interacting with the game) for more than 2 minutes will be automatically removed from the matchmaking queue.
    • Interacting with NPCs or configuring skills, mods or builds is not considered AFK behaviour (though being inactive for 2 minutes+ while being in menus or dialogue options is).
  • Improved the visibility of Brood Mothers’ “Surge” AOE Attack (Blue flames)
  • Fixed a bug whereby Scrap Grenade would stop working after a cinematic or when re-joining a session
  • Resolved an issue with the Technomancers Borealis Set and changed its description to match its new behaviour
    • The New Description is:
      • Increase damage on Frozen enemies by 90%. Also, Critical Hit Damage is increased by 10% for all party members for 8 seconds after Cold Snap usage.
    • The Old Description was:
      • Increase Weapon Damage on Frozen enemies by 90%. Also, Critical Hit Damage is increased by 10% for all party members for 8 seconds after Cold Snap usage.
    • IMPORTANT: While we have resolved one problematic aspect of this set, we very recently discovered a second underlying issue that can still cause the full 90% set bonus to stop working when in combat. Un-equipping and re-equipping the set can help temporarily resolve this. We apologize for this confusion and are already working on a resolution to this second issue.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Tricksters Hunt The Prey to get stuck on activating
  • Fixed a bug whereby Bleed status from the armor mod ‘Bloody Crush’ would not be inflicted on enemies hit with the ‘Gravity Leap’ skill
  • Fixed a bug whereby the Devastator’s “Blood Donation” class node wouldn’t work if the player didn’t have other active “skill life leech” nodes or mods.
  • Clarified the description for the Ravenous Locust Mod
  • Fixed a bug whereby dismantling an item might not have displayed the mod preview
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the “In Sync” accolade to not properly unlock for Client players
  • Fixed an issue that could cause players to not get the proper reward if they completed an Expedition during the final second of the reward tier.
  • Other bug and crash Fixes

This patch will also include the below tweak which can be considered a small rebalance. Please note that this is just a small tweak that required code work and was already ready to be rolled into this patch. Our next patch after this one is intended to have more buffs for all classes.

  • [REBALANCE] Changed the Pyromancers Healthy Lifesyle Mod and changed it’s description to match it’s new behaviour.
    • This change should improve survivabilty while channeling this skill
    • The New Description is:
      • F.A.S.E.R Beam: Boosts your Health Regeneration X for the skill duration.
    • The Old Description was
      • F.A.S.E.R Beam: Boosts your Health Regeneration by X for Y seconds after the skill ends.

Demo Update:

  • The Outriders Demo has been updated so that its fix list and improvements are now in line with our 22nd of June patch.
  • Important: The Demo no longer requires Square Enix Membership registration in order to play, so if you know anyone who was holding off the demo due to this reason, please do let them know.

Ongoing list of currently tracked issues:

Note 1: This is not an exhaustive list of things being worked upon. This is also not a list of patch notes for the next patch. Upcoming patches will address issues that may not be listed here.

Note 2: “Investigated” means that we have been able to successfully reproduce an issue on our dev environment and are currently looking at the root causes of said issue. If we have not yet been able to reproduce a specific issue, it may not be listed here, but that doesn’t mean we’re unaware of it.

  • State of Stadia
    • Stadia still needs to be brought in line with other platforms with regards to fixes, bug resolutions and crossplay support.
    • We are continuing to do this work on aligning all platforms, but do not yet have a definite date for when this will be possible.
    • We appreciate that this work is taking longer than expected and do apologize for this.
  • Stuck at 99% Accolade Progress
    • Issue being investigated
      • UPDATE: While our investigation is ongoing, we will attempt to manually trigger the missing accolades for all users who previously helped us investigate this matter.
  • Technomancers Borealis Set 90% bonus can stop working in combat
    • As mentioned in the patch notes, there is an additional underlying issue with this set that was only recently discovered. We are already re-investigating this matter in order to ensure that the set will be made fully operational again asap.
  • Matchmaking privacy settings may set themselves to Open without input from the player
    • Issue being investigated
  • Xbox problems related to signing in
    • This is one of our top priorities and something we are continuing to investigate. This patch may well help with the issue, but we are continuing to monitor it.
  • Certain enemies, especially Alphas, may break out of Frozen CC as soon as they are damaged
    • Issue being investigated
  • Game stutters when multiple Crawlers are on screen, in particular during certain Expeditions
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Certain Mods not working, in particular when you’re the client during multiplayer sessions
    • Issue under review following multiplayer improvements
  • Players dying while a shield is active
    • Issue currently being investigated. Rather than shields not properly mitigating damage, this issue may be caused by (either) the UI not catching up properly or it may be a case of certain shield mods continuing to proc their shield after death has occurred under certain edge cases.
    • Example: A player continually generates shields and their death prevention mechanics are already on cooldown. They are then hit by enemy damage waves that deplete both shields and health at a greater/faster rate than the shield can regenerate in that window, leading to cases of player HP reaching 0 for a split-second before another chunk of shield is added.
  • Trickster’s Hunt the Prey does not turn player towards an enemy’s back if aiming down sights immediately after activation
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Trickster’s Venathors Knife may target a wrong enemy
    • Issue currently being investigated. This appears to be due to a delay when the skill changes targets.
  • Devastator skills may have inconsistent damage output, particularly when using Bleed & Moaning Winds combo.
    • Issue currently being investigated and may be resolved with the next patch.
  • Devastator Armour mod “Despair” doesn’t increase Anomaly Damage consistenyl.
    • Issue currently being investigated and may be resolved with the next patch.
  • Devastators Statue Set bonus ends after 8 seconds (which is not stated in the description)
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Journal entries/pick ups not appearing on secondary characters
    • Issue being reinvestigated
  • “Damage Blocked” Stat on Expeditions results screen occasionally appears inconsistently or abnormally low
    • Issue currently being investigated
  • A cutscene during the “The Mentor” Questline may not trigger, meaning players cannot progress past this point
    • Issue currently being investigated
    • Temporary Workaround: In your lobby, change your story checkpoint to an earlier one, then re-attempt this quest.

Outriders is now out for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam & Epic), and Google Stadia platforms. If you’d like to read more game updates and news, check out our Patch Notes section.
