Square Enix is back with another dev update regarding inventory restoration in Outriders. Unfortunately, the team is still working to recover lost items following the inventory wipe glitch from a few weeks ago. However, Square Enix has assured that it will restore “as many lost items and accolades as possible” in the coming days. The developers even plan to return the lost items in better condition than they were before.
According to the Outriders inventory restoration thread, players will receive their lost items with “God Roll values,” meaning that “these items will be at least the same if not better quality than the originally lost items.” The devs will also return the items at “the character’s highest available equip level.”
Square Enix will give priority to players with unplayable characters and unusable inventories. Many of these users have struggled to connect to the Outriders servers ever since a previous inventory wipe patch. After this group, the studio will restore inventories for playable characters who previously lost items.
Unfortunately, Square Enix’s update provided all of the details except a timeframe. Players won’t see inventory restorations today, but the team is running on an “ASAP schedule” to resolves this issue. In the meantime, Square Enix has assured that Outriders players will no longer encounter the inventory wipe glitch.
A thanks to Outriders fans
Thanks to last week’s inventory wipe prevention patch, the developers can focus on restoring those lost items. As a thanks to Outriders players for their patience, Square Enix teased that it will send out “community appreciation packages” after item restoration is complete. The packages will go to anyone who played the game between March 31 and April 16. Plus, those who lost inventories will receive the gift. At the moment, Square Enix plans to give players Titanium, a Legendary Weapon, and the “Frustration” emote. How appropriate.
