Outriders developer People Can Fly has detailed how it intends to compensate players for items lost due to an inventory wipe bug. Players will receive items back but with “god roll” values attached.
In a new post over on the Outriders subreddit, People Can Fly says that players who fell victim to the bug will be granted items that “have the same attribute combinations but with God Roll values.” This means that restored items will be “at least the same if not better quality than the originally lost items.”
“Items will be granted at the character’s highest available equip level taking World Tiers and Challenge Tiers into consideration,” the post continues.
Since launch, players have reported losing tens of hours (some close to 100 hours) of progress thanks to a bug that wiped their entire inventories. Square Enix and People Can Fly say they have now fixed that issue, but are yet to restore missing items to players.
Unfortunately, a date still has not been given for when the item restoration will occur, but People Can Fly is working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
The Outriders Community Appreciation Package, which contains some free legendary gear, will still be given to all players affected by the bug and who suffered connectivity issues at launch. You can expect the freebie sometime after People Can Fly completes the inventory restoration process.
