If you've been affected by the inventory wipe bug in Outriders since its release into Xbox Game Pass earlier this year, then you'll be happy to know that the restoration fix is beginning to slowly be rolled out to players.
Developer People Can Fly revealed the news in an update post, stating that the restoration process is underway for the first group of players. Those under Group A are first, and are the ones who have "encountered a wipe and are no longer able to login at this point in time". Once the team is happy this group is sorted, Group B is up next, which is "those players who lost items but were able to continue playing."
For those in Group A, the developer has advised to keep checking your affected character throughout the day:
Please check your affected characters throughout the day also making sure to log out and in again if you are in game at the time. If your character has not yet been restored, please be patient a little while longer as it may take a little time for the process to propagate across all affected characters.
It's also been highlighted what players in Group A can expect to find once their inventory is restored. It was previously revealed that those affected may receive gear that was better than what they lost, so hopefully that is still the case.
Group A Restoration:
- All items, regardless of rarity, that were equipped at the time of your inventory wipe will be restored.
- All legendary items that were in your inventory.
- For non-Legendary items: 20 previously acquired items that were in your inventory, with first prioritization based on rarity (descending from Epic rarity) and second prioritization based on date acquired.
- All fully completed Accolades will be restored if you previously reached the final tier of said Accolade.
- Interim tiers and progress towards any tier of an Accolade cannot be recovered.
Please keep in mind that we may not able to restore every single lost item with 100% accuracy, but we are doing our best to make sure the most valuable items are accounted for.
If your inventory is already full, restored items will be held server side until there is space in your inventory and you have logged out and back in again.
It's unclear how long it will be until Group B's restoration will commence. The team previously stated that it required a bit more time to differentiate those in Group B with players who haven't been affected by the bug. It seems the developer has begun getting a handle on the situation, so we hope it won't be long until everyone is sorted and back in the action.
If you've been affected, we do recommend checking out the full extensive post, which will allow you to also pose any questions to the team you may have.
Despite this, it seems the game can't catch a break, as a new glitch has been discovered which sees players killed in an instant hit. The issue stems from the latest update and the team has already acknowledged it's working on a fix. It's been a rocky start for Outriders, but it seems to slowly be ironing out all the bugs.
