It’s been a rocky road for Square Enix and People Can Fly, but cross-play in Outriders is finally working as intended across all platforms.
Though People Can Fly pushed out the games’ latest update on Friday (April 9), the game still hasn’t quite been playing ball over the weekend.
PC, PS4, and PS5 players have been able to play with each other for the last few days, but as of today (April 12), the Xbox servers are working properly, too, and cross-play is now once again fully operational.
“We’re a little bit delayed on the Xbox version of this patch, but the Xbox team are being incredibly supportive in helping us get it ready as soon as we can,” the official Outriders account noted last week. “[…] Crossplay between Consoles and PC will be fully restored once the Xbox patch has gone live,” the Twitter thread concluded.
That 600MB patch is now live on Xbox consoles, and cross-play is operational.
“We are continuing to monitor performance and feedback,” Outriders goes on to say on its Twitter account. “Following this update, we will be providing news on further steps as soon as we can.”
If you’ve been affected by the game’s less-than-ideal launch, at least you get something back for your woes: all players who played between March 31 and April 11 are eligible for the appreciation package. Players that suffered an inventory wipe can also get the pack, too.
Recently, PC players have noted that the game can create a huge crash file dump (that can reach up to 22GB in size!) if left unchecked on their platform.
All of the above issues are irritating, sure, but if you can overlook them and actually get the game working, Outriders can be a really fun game.
