Ahead of Xbox One’s second spring update Microsoft is inviting a handful of gamers to test the patch’s mutiplayer features. As Major Nelson tells it, the invite process starts today and if picked, you’ll be first in line to try future updates as well. Lucky users will be notified via a Live message containing a download token within the next week; all Redmond asks in return is that you offer feedback about the new bells and whistles on a private forum. Microsoft has a storied history of letting users test its firmware updates.
The team is working hard to deliver some exciting updates in March that will make Xbox One even better. But in order to ensure our customers have the best experience on Xbox One and Xbox Live, we need the help of our passionate community. Beginning today, Xbox is inviting select Xbox Live members to preview new features coming to Xbox One in a March system update and future system updates as they become available, asking them to provide valuable feedback before the updates are implemented worldwide. Selected participants will receive an Xbox Live message with a token to register. The next system update will begin rolling out next week to those who will preview the new features. Once registered, participants will be able to test the early features included in the update and provide feedback on a private forum and can opt out of future waves.
