After a launch filled with server issues, the developers of Outriders are awarding anyone who has tried the game in their first two weeks a Community Appreciation Package.
Developers say they’re still working on the package, but the plan is to make the rewards available to anyone who played Outriders between March 31 and April 11.

The gift includes a legendary weapon and an amount of titanium corresponding to the player’s highest character. Additionally, players will receive the “Frustration” emote. The emote may correspond to some of the emotions that players experience when launching the game, but the developers say the irony is appropriate, but not intentional.
The Outriders’ servers had to be taken down last weekend so that the developers can “bring it back to a healthy and stable state”. The team also noted that they were working on a long-term fix, rather than just temporarily fixing server issues. In addition to working on improving multiplayer stability, the team is also rebalancing some of the game’s skills.
The game has seen a huge player base since its initial launch, with over 100,000 people playing on Steam at its peak. To find out more, you can consult our Outriders review in progress, where we say, “the action itself is always great – especially when played with friends.”
