Outriders patch notes: crossplay, bug fixes, and more

The latest Outriders patch notes are in, and after the massive patch notes that dropped last week, these are fairly short - but important. That's because Outriders crossplay is finally working across all platforms, after disconnects between PC and consoles plagued the game since day one.

As a result, People Can Fly disabled automatic matchmaking between PC and consoles, urging players to wait to play across platforms until all versions of the game were patched. Well, that's finally happened with the latest April 9 and 10 patch notes, so get ready to get your crossplay on.

Aside from fixing the crossplay issues, the latest Outriders patch notes offer a series of bug and crash fixes (including the dreaded launch crash that made my Outriders review a bit of a headache). Here are the complete Outriders patch notes:

  • Crossplay re-enabled across PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S
  • Overall stability improvements for the matchmaking service

Crash Fixes

  • Fixes a multiplayer crash that could result in client players having their inventory wiped
  • Fixes the crash when completing the "A Bad Day" side quest.
  • Fixes the crash that occurs in No Man's Land when your language is set to Spanish (Yes, we know. Video game code is a magical thing).
  • Fixes crash on launch issues
  • Includes many more "random" crash fixes
  • Fixes the HUD disappearing in certain cases
  • Fixes bugs that interfere with players re-spawning in multiplayer Expeditions
  • Fixes bugs with players getting stuck on geometry (including when using Gravity Leap) or falling out of the world.
  • Changes the default matchmaking setting from "Open" to "Closed".
  • Many other minor fixes and improvements
  • PC specific: Fixes a performance issue where GPU is not being fully utilized. This should help with stuttering and DX11/12 issues 

That's all that's included in the latest Outriders patch notes, and while they're not as huge as the first update, they'll certainly make a big difference.
