Outriders – solving technical problems

No interface, can’t connect to server, Unreal Engine error, anti-cheat issue and other Outriders bugs and issues

The Outriders demo was released at the end of February and was technically quite stable. But the release of the main game was not without its problems. Many players could not connect to the servers for many hours, and after completing the prologue, various bugs appeared. We’ve put together proven solutions for all common Outriders technical issues.

What computer do Outriders need (system requirements)

We studied independent tests of the game on various hardware and came to the conclusion that the official information is close to the truth, but only if you focus on a resolution of no higher than 1080p (1920×1080). Therefore, based on the tests studied, we have added recommendations for playing at 1440p (2560×1440) and 4K (3840×2160) at high graphics settings.

  • Operating system:Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor:Intel Core i5-3470 / AMD FX-8350.
