Heads up, horror multiplayer fans! Illfonic has released the Friday the 13th The Game update 1.38 August 6 patch for the PS4 and PC and it’s out now. The Xbox One and Nintendo Switch patches are in process but aren’t out just yet. It seems this patch is primarily for servers, and matchmaking than anything else.
Friday the 13th The Game Update 1.38 August 6 patch notes:
Here’s the forum post by Ilffonic on this patch’s status:
Recent attacks on our servers causing instability have been under investigation by the team. Working with our development partners, we have a patch candidate that is working through the process of going live on all platforms. However, due to the urgency of this patch we will be rolling it out as it is ready on a platform by platform basis as opposed to holding the patch until every platform is ready.
We aim to have the patch out on PC and PS4 by the weekend. We will update this thread when those builds go out. Xbox and Switch will be trailing, but we plan to deliver those as soon as possible.
While this sounds like players on specific platforms will see improvements before players on the trailing platforms, due to how our backend is structured, the patch landing on other platforms means we should see an overall improvement in matchmaking for every platform, building as we reach parity.
The staged approach is going to make incremental improvements as it rolls out on different platforms and ultimately, once the last platform is updated, alleviate the issue for the community.
I’ll be back to update this thread as the patch rolls out.
Thank you for your patience, gang.
That’s basically it. If there are any gameplay-related updates, we’ll make sure to update the post.
