KEY POINTS

  • "Outriders" is the latest RPG title from People Can Fly and Square Enix
  • The game has suffered server issues since its launch
  • Its developers recently announced how they are making up for the issues

All "Outriders" players will get an appreciation package from the game developers as a way of making up for the server issues that affected the game during its launch and the days after. The said free goodies include a Legendary weapon. For players wondering how they can check the game's server status, this article might come in handy.

Appreciation Package

Square Enix recently made the announcement about the "Outriders" appreciation package on Reddit, Gamesradar said in a report. In the said post, the devs thanked fans and assured them that the team continues to work to improve the game.

"Beyond just saying it, however, we would like to confirm that we are working on a small 'appreciation package' for our launch window players," the devs added.

The said package will be given to all "Outriders" players who will get their hands on the game between March 31 and April 11. In other words, those who haven't tried the game yet can still have the chance to qualify for the free goodies. 

What does this package contain? According to the devs, it would include a level-appropriate Legendary weapon alongside a Titanium bundle and an emote called Frustration.

As of writing, the specifics of the package are still unclear and its contents might still change before it launches. Also, the devs did not specify when players would get these freebies.

How To Check The Game Servers

The surge of players simultaneously playing the game since its launch has led to server problems, causing irregular downtime. Thankfully, players who want to check the status of the servers can do it easily, thanks to a new dedicated page created by the devs.

The page allows players to get the latest information about the servers straight from the devs handling them. All they have to do is visit the official status page of the site. On the page, players will learn if the game, as well as the Square Enix Membership service, are online.

Additionally, by clicking on the box next to "Outriders," they will see the current status of the game's multiplayer and core components.
