Yesterday People Can Fly proudly announced a patch to improve the Outriders player experience. Unfortunately, the latter has done a lot of damage to some users by simply and easily clearing their character’s inventory. Tonight, the Polish developers say they have done everything necessary to resolve these incidents and indicate how to avoid the loss of all their products.
The disappearance of stocks
The success of Outriders cannot be denied. Indeed, since its release, the last game released by Square-Enix has welcomed large numbers of gamers enough to make it one of the top 3 most played titles right now on Xbox. However, this success leads to some side effects, starting with particularly unstable servers.
For 15 days, interruptions, delays, and other returns to the title screen haven’t stopped turning players into slut. And yesterday it took an even more annoying turn, as the update rolled out during the day removed all of the characters’ gear for some players. A frustrating situation that should be resolved now.
It’s People Can Fly, the developer at Outriders, who shares the latest advances on the topic on Twitter. According to him, strengthening the infrastructure now makes it possible to drastically reduce the frequency of incidents. However, if the studio shares that you were still the victim of an inventory loss, a recovery procedure is in place.
Today we applied additional preventative measures to our servers to protect us from inventory wipes.
These reduce the occurrence of this problem, but we continue to apply additional countermeasures.

Find your things
To do this, you have to be reactive, to say the least. Once your inventory is gone, you will need to quit the game. To do this, open the Xbox manual, select Outriders and select the option “Close application” (menu button on your controller). Once this manipulation is complete, restart the game and repeat the process if necessary.
Unfortunately, if you were ever affected by the loss of your inventory before tonight, we don’t know if there is any way you can get it back. We monitor the communication around the game and will keep you informed.
Hopefully this time is right for Square-Enix and Outriders, but especially for gamers. Do not hesitate to indicate in the comments if you are concerned and if this manipulation made it possible to find your belongings. Good game for everyone!
