Since its launch last week, Friday the 13th: The Game has suffered a number of technical issues across all platforms. Even though the game has had problems on all systems it’s available on, the Xbox One version seems to have been neglected more than others, missing the day one patch that the PC and PS4 versions enjoyed. Illfonic and Gun Media have since released a significant patch for the game on Xbox One that addresses a long list of issues.
Perhaps the most notable change to the Xbox One version of Friday the 13th: The Game in its latest update is its improvements to matchmaking. According to the patch notes, players should be able to find online matches faster than they were able to before. Those that have been frustrated by Friday the 13th: The Game‘s matchmaking issues on Xbox One should rest assured that there are plans to continue improving on it in the future as well, with Illfonic partnering with Microsoft to speed up the matchmaking process even further.
Along with the improvements to matchmaking, the latest update for Friday the 13th: The Game on Xbox One addresses many glitches and other problems with the game. Among other things, the patch fixes issues with the repair mini-game, boat physics, weapons not firing, characters getting stuck in objects, and more.
Besides these improvements to the game’s performance, the latest patch also adds some things to Friday the 13th: The Game. For example, female characters have movable hair now and Tommy Jarvis has a new cinematic introduction when he spawns. These additions to Friday the 13th: The Game along with the bug fixes make this update rather substantial for the Xbox One version and should go a long way in bringing it closer to other versions of the game.
Having said that, it’s clear that Friday the 13th: The Game still has a long way to go. Hopefully Illfonic and Gun Media continue to support it with patches and updates for the Kickstarter backers that helped make it a reality and the fans that have purchased it since launch.
Friday the 13th: The Game is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
