After a series of launch-day issues for developer People Can Fly’s shooter Outriders, it seems that annoying bug that wipes players’ inventories, has made its return.
Obviously, players are not exactly thrilled with this, and have taken to social media to show their irritation with this bug. Some people who have been playing for upwards of 50 hours have lost all of their gear, while others are stating the bug is happening while matchmaking. People Can Fly and publisher Square Enix haven’t outright said what is causing inventories and accolades to get cleaned out.
Senior community manager Toby Palm told players on Reddit that while the team is working on stabilizing the servers, a fix for the inventory glitch is being considered.
“We’re still figuring out whether the best way would be a one-to-one customer support team method (which may be more accurate but would take much longer and may not be feasible if there are many cases), or whether we are able to (as previously) run a mass-one-off restoration event via our backend,” Palm said.
A post on Reddit shows what appears to be a collage of players’ inventories, all empty of clothing and weapons.
This glitch previously affected the Outriders demo. Before the game’s launch on April 1st, People Can Fly had said the inventory glitch would be resolved afterwards. However, only Legendaries would be restored.
