Mere hours ago, Gun Media, the developer of Friday the 13th: The Game, announced via the social media that a new hotfix patch for PS4 was released. A patch for the Xbox One version is also expected to be launched soon.
The new patch addresses some serious issues such as the memory leaks that cause the game to crash. Crash bugs with Slate rendering are also fixed now. Players will no longer be able to use the glitch to get onto roofs and enter hidden areas. Previously, some players used to take an unfair advantage of the crouch glitch and access parts of the map that are supposed to be off-limits. The new patch also handles some other spots preventing users from accessing places Jason is unable to access.
The Gun Media post reads that during the weekend, a great number of players informed them about the exploit, which has led to the prompt patch release. The developer has recently declared war to cheaters. Those who violate the established rules or attempt to cheat get a permanent ban.
The PS4 patch is now available on Steam. As for the Xbox One patch, Gun Media said the team was working hard towards minimizing the game crashes but the entire process was pretty challenging. Still, the testing was going well and Gun Media representatives remained confident that the upcoming patch will completely eliminate the crashing issues on the Xbox One console.
As a matter of fact, Friday the 13th: The Game has managed to capture the attention of more players than developer expected. As a result, the game did not have the smoothest launch. Players and Gun Media team encountered major multiplayer server issues and bugs. To apologize for the rocky launch, Gun Media awarded Friday the 13th: The Game fans with free in-game content.
Although the developer has been releasing updates, it seems there is still work to be done. Nevertheless, if the patch achieves its purpose and ends the massive wave of exploiters, Gun Media developers should be able to focus on ironing out all bugs and refining game’s content.
