New Outriders Update Previewed, Out Next Week With Key Bug Fixes

People Can Fly has offered a preview of the next Outriders update, which will feature a range of key bug fixes when it launches next week.

Right now the patch is in the certification process at Sony and Microsoft, and the studio is hoping to have it released on July 13. There’s always chance it could be delayed depending on how long certification takes.

For now, here’s a preview of the new Outriders update.

  • 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
