'Outriders' (ALL) Launches With Broken PC/Console Cross-Play, Hotfix In the Works

by Rainier on April 1, 2021 @ 10:01 a.m. PDT

Outriders is a 1-3 player, drop-in-drop-out, co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe.

As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across a hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and deserts in pursuit of a mysterious signal.

In the 30 years that have passed since the Human colonists’ arrival, the once peaceful wildlife and environments of Enoch have hyper-evolved from exposure to the Anomaly, turning nearly every living creature into something designed to kill.

The untamed frontiers of Enoch are filled with dangers that will test the Outriders fortitude to the limit.

Outriders is out today but according to a reddit thread by Square Enix, cross-play between PC and consoles is broken.

KNOWN CROSSPLAY DISCONNECTS BETWEEN PC AND CONSOLE

  • In preparing the Day 1 builds for PC and Consoles, we discovered a desynchronization between the PC and Console code. This results in a backend mismatch which causes players to be kicked out of a multiplayer game that includes both Console and PC players.
  • We are treating this issue with the highest priority and we are working on patches that will synchronize all platform code, which will resolve these issues.
  • Steam & Epic can successfully play together.
  • PlayStation and Xbox players can successfully play together.

WORKAROUND:

  • We have temporarily turned off automatic matchmaking between PC and Consoles. Steam & Epic players can still Crossplay together, either by invite or via matchmaking.
  • Should you invite a Console player into your PC game via an invite code (or vice versa), the game will initially connect, but one player will eventually be kicked out of the game. We highly recommend against doing this until we have patched all versions of the game.

Combining intense gunplay with violent powers, along with an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets and a compelling, personal story, Outriders offers countless hours of gameplay from one of the finest shooter studios in the industry.

Outriders is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC (Steam), with Google Stadia to follow later in 2021.
