New Outriders Patch Fixes Bugs and AFK-related Matchmaking Issue

Outriders, the co-op third-person action-adventure role-playing experience developed by People Can Fly, has received a brand new update that helps the active players a lot. One of the cruelest and most important changes obscures the Matchmaking algorithm, which should no longer match you with an AFK player. Furthermore, this update fixes a lot of bugs and issues.

The patch was deployed today after a short delay caused by testing the patch itself. The developers have come across a couple of crashes, which have further delayed the update release. The developer has also noted that the release of this patch might cause some additional crash issues. If such, committing a report would be beneficial for the developers.
