- Square Enix has announced that a first Outriders Stadia update will be released soon.
- The first major update for Outriders Stadia has been delayed because of bugs on other platforms.
- Fans are rather disappointed with the Stadia version bugs and threaten with refunds.
- Square promises a second update to follow shortly after the first one.
If you’ve been playing Outriders these days and felt like having a deja vu moment, remembering what happened with the launch of Cyberpunk, you’re not the only one.
It’s been just a few days since Square Enix released a patch to fix the inventory wipe bug in their Outriders game. A major patch is expected, though, to fix more problems in the Stadia version.
When and what to expect from a big Outriders Stadia update?
Following numerous gamer complaints, the developer has announced on Reddit that they are also working on a major update for the Stadia game version.
We hope to release a patch for Stadia in the week of April 26 that will address pre-order issues. A second patch may follow soon after […].
The reason for this delayed measure is that the game development on Stadia has been different than on other platforms.
The Stadia version includes some specific features such as Stadia Stream Connect; on the other hand, this version is also less plagued by the bugs seen on other platforms.
Since the team has been focused on fixing urgent issues, the Stadia version has been neglected, the Square representative admitted.
So the first major patch should come out sometime next week, focusing on issues related to the game’s pre-order bonus.
Even with this news, fans are not overexcited, though. Some of them have literally felt neglected.
Great news, but I’m also very disappointed that the Stadia version doesn’t get the first patch until 4 weeks after release and crossplay still doesn’t work.
Some players are even threatening with refund requests, which perhaps the game developers have expected. And perhaps refund options and Outriders game alternatives will soon become a topic of discussion.
