The next feature update for Xbox One is available for everyone now

Sean Murray Announces XBox One Release Date

Now Hello Games seems to want to fulfill some of its original promises which will allow you to group up with friends, encounter strangers, and work together to build bases or hunt down other players. But today during an Inside Xbox livestream, Hello Games' Sean Murray confirmed that the update will usher in a feature many have been baying for since launch: fully-featured cooperative multiplayer.

Xbox Live and Discord integration: Xbox Live users can now sign into their Discord accounts. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked. Enhancements to the Xbox One dashboard have been revamped for easier link to surround sound systems. After linking, you'll notice that your Xbox Live stats will be shared on Discord, so your friends and users there can see what you're playing. Once you receive your unique code from Xbox, open the Discord app and insert the code into the Connections tab. This is double the 60Hz top end that the Xbox One supported previously. Apart from the 1440p resolution and auto low latency mode on your console, you can now turn on 120Hz support for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions if you own a supported monitor or television. The new update also includes Family Settings improvements in the form of a "Details" page that collects all the relevant family settings. Only time will tell how much of a difference this makes for the sci-fi adventure game and if its enough to get the game back in the good graces of its players.

Starting with the May Xbox One update you'll be able to trim your recent game captures and share them on Twitter from the in-game Guide.
