Developers from the People Can Fly studio has presented a small guide that will help users overcome the error that prevents Outriders from starting. The instructions were posted on Twitter.
If you are stuck at the stage of the logging screen, you can just wait. The maximum download lasts about ten minutes. Here are the steps:
- Full cache clear
- On Consoles, Turn off the device and unplug the power cord for a few minutes.
- If the download does not move beyond 80% or the game logo appears and does not disappear, then in the lobby, instead of “Continue”, click “Select starting point”.
According to the devs on the night of April 4-5, Outriders was at its maximum online since its release. At the same time, the servers worked stably under such a load. In the future, People Can Fly and Square Enix plan to publish a detailed breakdown of the problematic release of the game.
The release of the cooperative shooter Outriders took place on April 2. The game is #1 on the weekly Steam chart and has also set the highest online record for Square Enix. Despite this, due to problems with the servers, which do not allow playing even in single-player mode left many players unhappy.
