Friday the 13th: The Game has received an update on the Playstation 4 version of the game that addresses a couple of memory leaks and exploits used by players. According to the game’s official Twitter account, an update for the Xbox One version of the game will arrive next. As for Steam, these fixes already arrive with the last patch.
On the biggest highlight of the patch is a fix for the ‘crouch glitch’ used by many players. The glitch basically revolves around getting on the roofs and within hidden areas. According to Gun Media, the studio received over 5,000 reports this past weekend that caused them to work on the issue as soon as possible:
The ‘crouch glitch’ that has been used by players to get on roofs and within hidden areas is patched out and should no longer be occurring to players. Other areas have also been looked at and patched up as to prevent users from getting into spots where Jason cannot go.
We received over 5,000 reports this weekend due to the exploit issue which prompted us to take action as quickly as possible. Bans have been issued and will continue to be issued to those exploiting to harass/abuse other users.
As mentioned earlier, the fixes already launched on Steam, are now available on PS4, and will shortly arrive on Xbox One.
