So I hit level 12, and went to go assign my skill points, but they were greyed out and I couldn't click on them. Thinking maybe it was because I was in a combat zone, I left the planet. Still couldn't. I have since leveled up, stripped naked, etc in game, reloaded the save, and I still can't assign skill points. Worse, I tried respeccing thinking that would help. I now have 120 skill points I can't assign. So basically, my character has become unplayable :(

Same issue here. I'm at level 4, and I can assign my perk point but not my 10 skill points (I can choose where to put the points, but the 'E' key to accept does not work). Interestingly, I had no problem assigning skill points at earlier levels, and 'E' works just fine elsewhere, e.g. looting corpses. Very annoying. I've tried restarting twice. Respeccing had the same result for me as for AspenScythe -- I was left with all of my skill points which I could not assign. Thanks.

Same issue, hit level 8 after leaving the first planet and all skills are greyed out, not able to assign any of the available points. Game is essentially unplayable and I'm definitely not going to repeat the 10 or so hours I have already played to get around a bug. No excuse for releasing something with game-breaking bugs.

Just started playing The Outer Worlds last night and I encounter this bug (or similar) very early on -- my character had just hit level 2 and was on Hawthorne's ship and got the notice that I could spend 10 skill points and 1 perk point.

 

I navigated to the correct tab(s) and chose the skills (and perk) that I wanted and when I hit the X button (on xbox one controller) nothing happens. Hitting Y or holding Y down works (clears a single skill/perk chosen ; clears all skills/perks chosen). B works taking you out of the skill/perk window, but X just will not save your choices.

 

If you move around the various tabs and windows, you eventually get a warning that leaving Skills/Perks windows will result in your choices being lost, and it gives you the option to go back (B) or continue and leave the window, thus losing everything.

 

I eventually got the 10 skill points to save, but I have no idea what I did to get it to save, but the Perks situation is ongoing -- I have yet to be able to get that one pesky perk to save by hitting the X button.

I've just hit level 21 and its doing it to me now, I cannot spend any Skill Points as they are 'greyed out' I started a new game and they are 'greyed out' from the beginning. Even completely purged all evidence of the game from my system and re-installed. No help there as it's still happening. Anyone know if this is being worked on?I've just hit level 21 and its doing it to me now, I cannot spend any Skill Points as they are 'greyed out' I started a new game and they are 'greyed out' from the beginning.

Hey Everyone,

Sorry for this issue with the leveling system.  What platform are you all using to play The Outer Worlds?  From what I've been able to see so far it seems like it's mostly an Xbox One issue but I want to be sure to help us narrow this down.

Unfortunately the delay on this has been that we have yet to get a reproduction in-house to be able to see what is happening to the game in the background so we can fix it, but we are still looking into this.

Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience this has been causing.

I am also playing "The Outer Worlds" on a PlayStation 4.  I just reached level 2 while on Hawthorne's ship and am unable to save either skill points or perk points.

I'm playing on the PC, I bought the game from the EPIC Store, the game is in version: Rell.2.0.418 and I'm having the same problem. I played for 14 hours and I'm at Lv 15, but I can't distribute 25 skill points on my character. Any patches to fix this?

Hello again everyone,

We are still looking into this issue but are having a bit of trouble getting a reproduction case so that the programmers can see what is causing the issue.  From what I've seen in other threads online, some players have been able to bypass this by tapping the assigned input commands quickly.  It's not a fix, but I'm hoping it'll help some of you so you can continue your adventure while we try to sort this out.  If anyone is also able to get a video of what is happening here, that would be amazing as well.

Thanks again for letting us know about this issue and for helping us get to the bottom of it!

I have a save game I can offer - at level 11, less than a minute before hitting level 12 - at which point skill points cannot be assigned - but it's over the filesize limit

 

Mine was also the case where I've come back to the game after a long break... though I guess it will be an even longer break if this doesn't get fixed.

 

I've also loaded back to levels 10->11 and I have the exact same problem so this whole character is useless

same here, level 5 after a newly installed game, no "Apply" option at the bottom of the Skills UI, and 30 skills points available but none of them can be assigned. PLEASE FIX THIS, this is not a minor issue.

Hi, I got the same issue, 10 monthes after the first report, I can't assign skill points. What about fixing game breaking issues ? Just the worst game dev support I've ever seen.
