If you were one of the many who played Outriders during it’s first week of release, then you probably noticed that the game suffered some seriously downtime as servers went offline, matchmaking times, and even some account wipes. Well, seems that People Can Fly will be offering some compensation as they have announced details for an appreciation gift for Outriders players.
In a lengthy Reddit post, People Can Fly took to thanking the community for sticking with them, despite all the launch related issues (some still happening).
After working on Outriders for more than five years, we were as disappointed as you that the launch weekend did not go as planned. We ran into connectivity issues, which we have explained in full here.
Throughout all of this we really appreciated all your messages of support and encouragement and they helped us power through and improve the situation.
We would like to thank each and every one of you. Beyond just saying it, however, we would like to confirm that we are working on a small “appreciation package” for our launch window players.
Final details on the appreciation packages are still being worked on, but people can fly did confirm the who’s eligible and what they should expect to see from it.
Who Are Eligible for the Outriders Appreciation Package?
All players who played between March 31st and April 11th (UTC timezones) are eligible
Any players outside the above window, but for whom we will have performed an automatic inventory wipe restoration are also eligible
Your highest leveled character will receive:
A level appropriate Legendary Weapon
A level appropriate amount of Titanium
The emote “Frustration”, which is otherwise unobtainable at this moment in time. The irony here was not intentional but is fitting.
Once People Can Fly announces a release date and the full details on the Outriders appreciation package, we’ll be sure to issue a new post. In the meantime, continue on enjoying the game Outriders!
