Outriders Update 1.05 April 9 Rolled Out for Loads of Fixes (Update #2)

Outriders Update 1.05 April 9

Following yesterday’s server-side update for Outriders, People Can Fly has released the Outriders update 1.05 April 9 patch that’s live now on PlayStation and PC! Xbox gamers will be getting it at a later date, which we touched on below in the patch notes.

Update #1(April 9, 5:00pm CT): The PS5 patch has yet to be released, but People Can Fly did say (see details below) its coming. Sadly this means that players on that console won’t be able to crossplay for the meantime.

Update #2 (April 9, 5:50pm CT): The PS5 patch has been delayed, see below details.

Outriders Update 1.05 April 9 Patch Notes:

PC & Console Platforms:

  • Once platforms have been updated to the same patch version, cross-play across platforms will become viable again
    • EDIT: 09.04.21 – 19:05 UTC
      • With the release of this patch, Crossplay between PlayStation and PC is now possible.
      • Crossplay between Xbox and PC/PlayStation has been temporarily disabled until the Xbox patch has released.
      • Crossplay between consoles and PC will be fully restored once the Xbox patch has gone live.

  • Overall stability improvements for the matchmaking service
  • Crash Fixes
    • Will Fix a multiplayer crash that could result in client players having their inventory wiped
    • Will fix the crash when completing the “A Bad Day” side quest.
    • Will fix the crash that occurs in No Man’s Land when your language is set to Spanish (Yes, we know. Video game code is a magical thing).
    • Will fix crash on launch issues
    • Will include many more “random” crash fixes
      • We are confident that these fixes will address the majority of crashes reported, as there are only a handful of root causes but the crashes they generate appear in a number of places.
  • Will fix the HUD disappearing in certain cases
  • Will fix bugs that interfere with players re-spawning in multiplayer Expeditions
  • Will fix bugs with players getting stuck on geometry (including when using Gravity Leap) or falling out of the world.
  • Will change the default matchmaking setting from “Open” to “Closed”.
    • You will still be able to manually change this setting to “Open” through your game settings
    • This change will prevent players from joining games where the host didn’t intend to play in multiplayer. It will also cut down on AFK lobbies
    • This will also help improve matchmaking times, as the queues will be less likely to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of constant matchmaking requests generated by “open” games.
  • Many other minor fixes and improvements

PC Specific:

  • Will Fix a performance issue where GPU is not being fully utilized. This should help with stuttering and DX11/12 issues

For crossplay functionality, PlayStation and PC crossplay seems to be back, though Xbox to PC is still unavailable for now. Read up on that and more below.

Hopefully, Xbox gamers get the patch soon as well.

Stay tuned to our Outriders review hitting the site soon.
