Finally, At Long Last, ‘Friday The 13th’ Gets An Xbox Patch

After all the complaints, all the issues, all the stories, and all the social media about it, Friday The 13th: The Game has finally received a patch to fix many of the problems Xbox One users have been having. IllFonic and Gun Media released the details on the Friday The 13th Facebook page, giving a heartfelt apology for the delay as they have been working to resolve every issue in a single patch rather than releasing multiple patches that would only solve portions of the problem. Check out the full list below, and please, if you’re an Xbox One player, we’d love to hear if any of this truly got fixed.
