More On: Friday The 13th: The Game

To say that Friday the 13th had a rocky start would be an understatement. There was cause to believe that the Xbox One version of the game was actually just the beta client, but apparently this was caused by a delay with the day one patch.

Now, that patch has been released, and the game seems to be functioning much better. While it still isn't perfect, with Reddit users still consistently reporting errors, it's certainly a major step in the right direction.

It remains to be seen if it's too little, too late, however, because the game's reputation has certainly taken a hit.

The patch notes, which can be found on the game's Facebook, are listed below.
