The PAX skills tress, a revamped endgame content, and a new ranking system. The game is coming to all platforms on June 30, but Early Access was available from June 28. However, the first launch did not go so hot. There were various complaints of server issues and other problems for the majority of players trying to log in.
With the big release just hours away, these are the problems that the developers could have really done without. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen how the actual game turns out after a few days of playing, though the signs are still good for now.
Outriders Worldslayer: Problems at the start
The issues stemmed from server issues, with so many players trying to get in at the same time in order to get their hands on the game. Therefore, the game’s servers are performing in a degraded manner ever since the update, and this led to problems with the multiplayer system and main parts of the game inside.
The Update being talked about is the 1.2.0, which was applied before Outriders Worldslayer came out for Early Access. However, players have continued to face errors while logging in, with some of them having to “initial sign in” files and “date tables.”
People Can Fly have taken note of the issue, and posted on Twitter, clarifying that they are “working closely with our infrastructure partners to identify any bottlenecks with the connectivity and resolve them.”
Nonetheless, neither People Can Fly or Square Enix have given patch notes for the latest update. However, some changes to the game are already known, which include:
- Apocalypse Tier till level 15, which will replace the old Challenge Tiers in the campaign mode as opposed to World Tiers. Therefore, you will be able to enjoy the game on a level of difficulty which matches your progression status.
- There will be a balancing table for players having the Worldslayer expansion in terms of gear and mods. You will not change your balancing, but you will have the new gear and items that are present in the Worldslayer.
- Bug fixes a-plenty.
- Better performances and network updates.
Outriders Worldslayer is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One for $39.99. If you have not pre-ordered the DLC, you will get the game on June 30.
It will not be for free for Xbox Game Pass players, but those who have Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate membership will get it for $35.99. The same applies for Steam players, and PlayStation Plus members.
