People Can Fly has announced that it’s aiming to release the next patch for Outriders on Tuesday. However, a release date isn’t set in stone yet as the developer is still testing things out. Regardless, the patch should be out next week.
A preview of patch notes is as follows:
Improved Matchmaking to reduce the chance of matching with an AFK player
Players that are AFK (not interacting with the game) for more than 2 minutes will be automatically removed from the matchmaking queue.
Interacting with NPCs or configuring skills, mods or builds is not considered AFK behaviour (though being inactive for 2 minutes+ while being in menus or dialogue options is).
Improved the visibility of Brood Mothers’ “Surge” AOE Attack (Blue flames)
Fixed a bug whereby Scrap Grenade would stop working after a cinematic or when re-joining a session
Resolved an issue with the Technomancers Borealis Set and changed its description to match its new behaviour
The New Description is:
The Old Description was:
Fixed a bug that could cause the Tricksters Hunt The Prey to get stuck on activating
Fixed a bug whereby Bleed status from the armor mod ‘Bloody Crush’ would not be inflicted on enemies hit with the ‘Gravity Leap’ skill
Fixed a bug whereby the Devastator’s “Blood Donation” class node wouldn’t work if the player didn’t have other active “skill life leech” nodes or mods.
Clarified the description for the Ravenous Locust Mod
Fixed a bug whereby dismantling an item might not have displayed the mod preview
Fixed an issue that would cause the “In Sync” accolade to not properly unlock for Client players
Fixed an issue that could cause players to not get the proper reward if they completed an Expedition during the final second of the reward tier.
