The First Descendant Gets First Xbox Update, Here Are The Patch Notes

The First Descendant has been proving extremely popular since its free-to-play release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S earlier this week, and it's just received its very first update - albeit just a small hotfix.

Probably the most notable thing here from an Xbox perspective is an issue that caused AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution technology to be "malfunctioning". Also, the logo screen volume when starting the game has been reduced.

When we mentioned The First Descendant back on Wednesday, it had found its way into the top five "free" games on Xbox, and now it's sitting in the #1 spot! No surprises there - it's been a fantastic start for this new looter shooter.

We'll throw the full patch notes for The First Descendant update 1.01 down below.
