The first Outriders update is on the way and it's going to fix a pretty annoying problem: some of your lost Outriders items are going to be restored, but only if they're rare enough.

Outriders is the latest game from People Can Fly and Square Enix. It's had a bit of a shaky launch; the Crossplay feature was not fully functional at launch and the servers got hammered pretty badly at launch. There were, of course, some pretty bad bugs too — and one of the most serious ones caused lost items. Thankfully, that bug (among many other things) is going to be addressed in the game's first post-launch patch!

Some Lost Outriders Items Will Get 'One-Off' Restoration

A rather annoying bug has resulted in lost Outriders items for some players. The developers have figured out a workaround, but some of your missing gear is going to be gone for good.

A restoration of the "most valuable tiers of items lost" will take place as a one-off event on an unspecified day in the future. These items will be added to your inventory rather than replacing anything; what this means is that anyone who has kept playing after losing items due to a bug will not lose anything else when the restoration hits.

Unfortunately, this restoration is only going to apply to some of the most valuable items; the developers cite Epic and Legendary items as an example of what will be restored. If you have an inventory full of blues, however, you shouldn't expect to get your stuff back. It should also be noted that your replacement items might not have the same stats as your originals, sadly.

When is the First Outriders Update Release Date?

The first Outriders update release date will be sometime next week; the developers have not yet locked in a specific time. That said, People Can Fly says that it could get potentially get it out even earlier than expected, but their foremost concern is ensuring that this first patch is stable and fixes as many bugs as it reasonably can.

You can read about the changes coming in the first Outriders patch on Reddit. If you haven't yet jumped into the game, you can buy Outriders for PC and consoles starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent via its official website.
