The developer acknowledges that there’s been some issues with the game’s online functions.
Last week saw the launch of Outriders after a couple of delays, and all signs point to the game having potentially done pretty well for Square Enix and People Can Fly. The looter shooter has a surprisingly addictive gameplay loot and many people seem to be enjoying it pretty well. Having said that, it seems as if there have been a lot of issues, and ones the developer hopes to get specific about down the road.
There have been lots of reports of players being unable to connect to the servers, or having to log in multiple times to do so. Since the game is required to be online, even if you’re playing solo, this has caused a lot of grief over the course of the week of the game post-launch. In a post from the official Twitter account, the developers acknowledged there were issues and said they hope to get more specific down the line about what caused the bulk of these issues as well as what they’re doing to address the problem. It’s unclear what that means, obviously, but it will be interesting to see if they have pinpointed what the core problem is.
Outriders is available now on most major platforms. For the game’s possible post-launch plans of full expansions, you can read through here.
We're still continually working through it all, but we're hoping to in the near future share more specific details about whats going on and what we've been doing about it. https://t.co/MWf8IHIf5L
