This patch addresses the inventory wipe bug that has been happening to some players since Patch 1.05. Read below for the official patch notes from the developers, which includes a workaround in case you have your inventory wiped after installing the update.

Highlights

  • Inventory wipe bug has been fixed.

General Patch Notes

We have just released a patch on Steam, Epic, Xbox and PlayStation platforms that addresses the bug that has, since the previous update, been causing the inventories of certain players to be wiped.

If your inventory has been impacted, please note that our efforts to restore your items are a separate process from today’s released patch. 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.

IMPORTANT:
● With this new patch, some players may occasionally encounter multiplayer connectivity issues followed by inventory items being momentarily invisible. This is a known and only temporary behaviour that is part of our three-step inventory safeguarding measures. (Restarting your game or waiting a few minutes and then restarting your game should make your items appear again)
● We aim to address the occurrence of these edge cases in a future patch.
● If you do encounter a wipe that occurs after installing the patch and is not resolved following a game restart, please immediately report this in this Edge Case sub-thread. While we are confident that the patch will prevent inventory wipes in future, we do want to use the weekend to continue monitoring the situation and ensure that no more players are encountering any related issues before we move onto the restoration process.

As soon as we are satisfied by the patch’s effectiveness, we will share extra details including timelines of our upcoming Inventory Restoration process.

While our teams have mainly focused on preventing any further inventory wipes, we have also continued to look at ways of improving our restoration process. We will update you with these final details as soon as we have tested it and confirmed what is possible.

For any affected characters currently encountering a “Couldn’t Connect to Server”: these characters will have their inventories returned and they will become fully playable again as soon as our restoration process has completed.

Inventory Restoration Roll Out

To those affected by the Inventory Wipe Bug, the developers have rolled out a fix to restore everyone's items.

According to an official Reddit post, the Restoration will be rolled out in three batches: Group A, Group B, and Group C.

Below are details that distinguish each group:

  • Group A - These characters lost gear and were no longer playable (“Couldn’t Connect to Server” error when logging in). Most affected players will be in this group.
  • Group B - These characters lost gear but were still playable. Players may have continued playing on these characters since the wipe. These cases are far more difficult to conclusively identify en-masse but are fewer in number.
  • Group C - These are essentially all other players in the Outriders gaming population who did not encounter an inventory wipe. This is important to note as we want to ensure that our restoration efforts do not inadvertently impact them as well.

As of this writing, the developers have confirmed that most, if not all, in Group A have already had their items restored.

Restoration for Groups B and C are still underway and is expected to be complete over the next few days.

We will update this section of the page once the developers have shared any developments regarding the situation. For now, you can head to the link below for more details!
