Star Trek Online just uploaded a major upgrade for its Xbox Series X|S users. Cryptic said in a press release that the patch will specifically improve the performance and features for these console players. The upgrade includes an FPS boost, HDR support, faster loading, crossplay support with Xbox One users, and a better patch delivery system. This comes just weeks after the studio published its Refractions update for all console editions.
It also comes as the game is struggling with login issues that have persisted across all of Cryptic’s MMOs since yesterday. (It even derailed our planned stream yesterday!) As of this afternoon, the studio says it’s still working on the problem.
Hey gang – don't want to send too many "we have no update" updates, but just to keep you informed, the team is still working hard on trying to pinpoint the best way to fix this issue, which is affecting all Cryptic games right now. Hopefully some good news today.
