With the Outriders Worldslayer DLC launching very soon worldwide, it seems likely that players new and old will flock to the game’s online servers to check out the new content.
Given that early reactions seem to be mostly positive, including our own five-star Outriders Worldslayer review, there’s every chance that the Outriders servers will see a lot more people than usual tonight.
By now players know the signs when a game’s servers go down: you might not be able to load the game at all, or you might find yourself unable to match with other players line. Or maybe you’ll experience stuttering, lag, dropouts, or other telltale signs that something is wrong behind the scenes.
Anticipating our fears, the developers of Outriders posted the morning before launch, saying this on Twitter: “Our online infrastructure has been running in the green for 18 hours with fast connections and stable connections.”
The developers added, “We appreciate you had some long connections yesterday, but we don’t anticipate this issue tonight. We look forward to welcoming you back to Enoch Outriders!”
Sounds promising, doesn’t it? But of course, everything can change when the masses crowd onto the servers at the same time. If you’re reading this and worried about the Outriders servers, read on to find out the key details and how to check if Outriders is down.
Is Outriders down?
At the time of writing, Outriders is not down.
The official Outriders status webpage said “all systems operational” last time we checked.
We’re writing this shortly before the Outriders Worldslayer DLC launches, so we don’t know if the servers will experience any issues later today. Keep reading for some tips if you’re having trouble getting into the game.
How to Check Outriders Server Status
To check if the Outriders servers are down, the best place to check is the official Outriders status webpage. Click that link and you’ll see if the developers have recently logged any crashes or known issues.
If you think the Outriders servers might be offline, it’s also worth checking out Down Detector, a community-driven website where players can log their issues in real time. You should be able to see on this website if other players are having the same issues as you.
Another place to check for updates would be the official Outriders Twitter account, which has been known to post server status information in the past. Take a look at these three places and you should be able to spot if there are any issues with the Outriders servers right now.
If there are indeed some issues that you can see, it might be best to go play something else for a little while (or at least go make yourself a cup of tea), and come back later. to see if things have improved.
