We deeply apologize that coming back online is taking longer than expected – we are trying our best to ensure that we can safeguard against such issues in future and are therefore looking into root causes, not just symptoms.</p><p>This was followed by another message, revealing: “We are about to do the mother of all turn-it-off-and-on-again.</p><p>“This will take all servers offline for a short duration. The complete downage will allow us to rebuild and recover server infrastructure in order to bring it back into a healthy and stable state.”</p><p>And following this drastic action, there still seems to be problems with gamers connecting to the Outriders servers.</p></div><div readability=”49″><p><span>The latest update from the team within the last hour reads: “We are running checks on the restored infrastructure now to ensure it is operating as intended.</span></p><p>“While we don’t yet have a guaranteed fix or an ETA we are working on getting you back online asap. Please stay tuned!”</p><p>The good news is that this was shared a little while ago, meaning servers could return to normal before the end of the day in the UK.</p><p>However, with so many gamers looking to explore Outriders since it first launched, server problems are expected to continue during the weekend.</p><p>This could mean intermittent issues knocking players offline from time to time, depending on how many people try to access the game on Saturday and Sunday.</p></div><div readability=”47″><p>For those that haven’t kept up with the latest releases, Outriders is a new looter shooter published by Square Enix, which has been building hype in 2021.</p><p>Offering a chunky demo for those who want to try it out, Outriders has already surpassed a million peak users on Steam, with plenty having tried it on consoles too.</p><p>Not only has Outriders proven popular in its early days, but Microsoft has also added it to the Xbox Game Pass for launch week.</p><p>This means you can download and play it as part of your subscription on Xbox One and Xbox Series X… as soon as servers are back online.</p></div><p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p>Fri, 02 Apr 2021 21:20:00 +0000Gary Jones en text/html https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/1418469/Outriders-internet-connection-error-cant-sign-in-Xbox-PC-servers

Celebrities have cottoned on to the catchy TikTok viral hit, including Queen guitarist <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/latest/brian-may” target=”_blank” rel=”tag”>Brian May</a>, who’s performed the track on his Instagram page. Evans was amazed to see this, with the 73-year-old even contributing a guitar solo to his Wellerman live performance on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.</p></div><div readability=”44.631782945736″><p>One of Brian’s biggest hints on Instagram included: “Hope I get the chance to play on his album. Hmmm … I wonder if [Queen track] ‘39 would suit him ?</p><p>“Well it IS a kind of sea-faring song – written while sailing on the Milky Way, about 118 years in the future, I guess. What d’ye think ? “Don’t you hear my call…? Bri.’”</p><p>While on another occasion the music legend wrote: “I’d enjoy doing something serious with Nathan some time, if the planets aligned … Bri.”</p><p>But now Express.co.uk have caught up with both the Queen legend and rising star.

A new fresh slant – but grounded in solid history.”</p><p>After sharing these comments with Evans, he replied: “Ah nice! That’s amazing. Ah, that’s fantastic, I’ll need to get in touch with him and see if we can work something out.”</p></div></div><div readability=”48″><p>Asked if Ed has heard Wellerman, Evans replied: “As far I as I know I don’t think so, but I did see when he turned 30 he uploaded that picture of a cake, that was like a pirate cake. So I don’t know if that was a hint…but I like to tell myself it was anyway!”</p><p>The Wellerman star also shared that he intends to release his debut studio album this year, one that will have a variety of music on it.</p><p>The 26-year-old said: “I’ve been writing amid all the craziness of the charts. I’ve been recording new music and writing as well, so it’s going to be a mixture of different stuff.</p><p><span>“I’ve got some sea shanties recorded and I’ve got some proper songs that I wrote myself recorded.”</span></p></div><div readability=”45.580865603645″><p>On how his family’s finding his newfound fame, Evans said: “They’re loving it.</p><p>“They don’t treat me any different. I imagine if I was a bit younger around 18 or 19 it may be a bit different.”</p><p>Aside from an album, Evans is heading off on tour this December, performing in Dublin, Manchester, London and Glasgow, before travelling across Europe in January.</p><p><em><strong>Tickets for Nathan Evans’ debut tour are on sale now and can be purchased <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” rel=”nofollow” href=”https://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/nathan-evans-tickets?omq=nathan%20evans” target=”_blank”>here</a>.</strong></em></p></div><p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p>Fri, 02 Apr 2021 18:20:00 +0000George Simpson en text/html https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1418431/Wellerman-singer-Nathan-Evans-interview-Queen-Brian-May
