The first big note too Outriders will be available next week, revealed developer People Can Fly in a blog posts Today. If you have been waiting for general repairs regarding connection and drying systems, you still have to wait. But hey, at least the coolest class gets some serious nerfs.
Yes, Trickster, the cunning class that performs space magic in time and can teleport around the battlefields as if it were a walk in the park, takes a hit to power. The base cooling for Twisted Rounds, the ammunition ability that causes bullets to deal with exponential damage, will jump from 16 to 25 seconds. Some abilities that can increase Twisted Rounds’ power will also hit: Three nodes on Trickster’s solid wood – Disruptive Firepower, Scion of Power and Outrider Executioner – will have the power reduced from 50 percent to 35 percent.
People Can Fly is not just the nervous Trickster. Technomancer will now deal 15 percent extra damage to poisoned enemies (the figure was previously 30 percent). At the same time, Pyromancer’s Trial of Ashes hero tree node will be reduced by the same amount.
In the meantime, you will no longer be able to receive legendary weapons from repeatedly earning historian, bounty hunting and monster hunting missions.
“Although we understand the satisfaction this type of power can provide, it is currently hugely exceeding our wildest expectations, and we must therefore bring it down a notch,” the developer wrote.
People can fly too sier there are no plans to include a player-to-player mode in Outriders.
Today’s blog post addressed the insidious problem of fixture napkins, where some players log in only to find all their hard earned equipment missing. The good news: A solution is actually incoming, and it’s likely to be a “one-time event”, so you do not have to go through a one-on-one session with a customer service representative. The bad news: People Can Fly says that it will probably only be able to recover epic and legendary weapons, and that some weapons may return from the dead with other statistics – date TBA when this solution will expire.
A remarkable absence in today’s notes: the problem of cross games on the PC console. During the demo, players across platforms could team up, even if it wasn’t exactly slippery. You can get into sessions, but the players were often dropped, and sessions sometimes spit out completely. Square Enix told Kotaku at that time it Outriders Will have a 1.0 release version of [the] crossplay system at launch. ”
After a launch weekend plagued by instability, People Can Fly struck a chord between PC gamers and console gamers. (Xbox and PlayStation players can still merge with minimal turbulence.) On Tuesday, people can fly so in a tweet that a cross-console solution on PC console will be bound with “the general updates that we are currently making and running through testing.” It is unclear when it will be turned on again.
Representatives of Square Enix, the game’s publisher, did not respond to a request for comment from Kotaku in time for publication.
Launch of Outriders has undoubtedly been rocky, with a weekend of connectivity issues to the point where players could not log in to the game (despite be playable simply playing). As a means, People Can Fly offers a legendary weapon and a bit of titanium, the high team resource, to anyone who has played the game between March 31 and April 11. (If you play outside of that time frame but suffer from drought, you are also eligible.) These players will also be able to claim the “Frustration” mode.
