Microsoft has split the first big Xbox One system update into two smaller packages, the first of which has now been announced for February 11. This system update will include a better system for Xbox One owners to manage their storage space, a battery indicator on-screen for controllers, as well as USB keyboard support on the console. That's in addition to general stability and product updates, as well as behind the scenes stuff for developers. Not altogether too exciting, right?
Following the February 11 update will be what Microsoft describes as their "Countdown to Titanfall" patch. This one will be released on March 4 and will include, hopefully, many of the features and fixes that gamers have been pining for. While Microsoft wasn't specific with the patch's content, they do clearly state plans for features and improvements for the Xbox One's party and multiplayer systems.
While having the March 4 update ASAP would certainly be preferable for gamers who could care less about the February 11 update's content, it's good to hear Microsoft's team is going to ensure the patch hits before Titanfall launches. It simply wouldn't do to have tone of the biggest multiplayer releases of 2014 be bogged down by multiplayer and party issues caused by the platform, as opposed to the game itself.
In the mean time, hopefully February 11's update solves some secondary issues players have been having. Storage space fixes probably aren't at the top of many Xbox One owners' priority list, but some fixes are better than no fixes, right?
