Titanfall: Microsoft Update to Fix Xbox One Controller Twitching
Titanfall has been hyped through the roof and a lot of hopes are riding on the game to smash through expected sales figures. The game though seems to be having some minor issues with the Xbox One and developer Respawn Entertainment is now making sure it’s taken cared of by release date.
Microsoft is going to be tweaking its multiplayer a bit, as well as adding a new headset adapter for the Xbox One. A bigger problem though is with the Xbox One controller which according to the developer as a nasty ‘twitch’. An upcoming software patch will look to fix that and make the analog sticks more precise than before.
“It’s just fixing the controller input, really,” lead designer Justin Hendry told The Verge. “It wasn’t really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls. Now it’s fixed. We’re happy with it.”
Hendry also added that they worked with Microsoft for this solution and it will apply not only to Titanfall but to all Xbox One games. That’s pretty bizarre since Microsoft is reported to has had invested $100 million in developing the new controller.
Respawn also revealed that it’s working with Microsoft on a new version of the console’s upscaler; which will help to convert games rendered at sub-1080p resolutions up to the full HDTV standard.
Titanfall releases next month, with its beta starting this Friday. The launch needs to be perfect but as it is with EA titles, they usually come out in a shoe box.
