Outriders has had a tough time after its April 1 launch, with server crashes, bugs, baffling nerfs, gadgets disappearing, and extra. It’s an extremely frustrating situation. And it appears Outriders developer People Can Fly understands this. In response, it has launched a brand new group appreciation bundle that accommodates varied goodies, together with a brand new “frustrated” emote.

Announced and released yesterday, the group appreciation bundle is an try at a make-good after months of participant frustration and disappointment. Alongside the bundle, People Can Fly additionally made some smaller game balance changes and promised extra content material and adjustments quickly.

The silliest and but most excellent reward within the bundle is a brand new “frustration emote.” Considering how usually Outriders breaks or annoys its gamers, this will probably be used quite a bit. In reality, this very group bundle, meant to appease an offended participant base, is affected by a bug itself. Players are purported to get a brand new, highly effective legendary weapon—one that you simply’ve by no means obtained earlier than through loot drops or chests. However, some gamers are reporting that they’re getting dupes of legendaries they already had. People Can Fly says it’s working on a fix for this issue. In the meantime, you should utilize that new emote to share your emotions on the state of affairs.

Outriders launched again in April to numerous problems and issues. Some of those, like inventories being wiped utterly, have principally been mounted. Other points, together with the extraordinarily annoying disconnect bug that kicks gamers in the midst of missions, are nonetheless round, inflicting complications for people nonetheless enjoying. Another downside that has developed is an absence of content material. The endgame isn’t superb, failing to supply gamers quite a lot of cause to stay round, and many people, together with myself, have bounced from the sport just a few months after launch.

Will this make-good bundle work? I’m uncertain. But taking a look at how tough issues have been over the previous couple of months, and the shortage of any thrilling content material roadmaps, I’m guessing people will probably be getting quite a lot of use out of this new frustration emote. So that’s one thing.
