By Kelly Packard, 3 months ago
Friday the 13th: The Game had a rocky launch. It had an especially rocky launch on Xbox One. In fact, things were so bad that today the game received a patch that attempts to bring the Xbox One version line with the other platforms. Gun Media, the game's developer, promises they have "significantly reduced crash instances and performed a major sweep on bugs that have been persistent with the Xbox version."
