The moment many of us have been waiting for is here- the Xbox One patch for Friday the 13th: The Game is LIVE! As a fan of the game who happens to play on Xbox One, I can relate all too well to the pain and rage gamers have been feeling as they deal with endless crashes and bugs. Friday the 13th: The Game has been running much better on PC and PlayStation 4, which has only rubbed salt in the wound. Today’s announcement should turn all of that around.
From the game’s Facebook page:
“The team has significantly reduced crash instances and performed a major sweep on bugs that have been persistent with the Xbox version. Our sincere apologies for the time that this has taken to arrive, but we will be monitoring the patch and are already working on additional fixes. We believe this patch will greatly increase playability and bring the game in line with other platforms. Again, we thank you for your patience and our team cannot wait to bring in more content that will be coming!”
