Anthem’s next update will arrive tomorrow on April 23, global community manager Andrew Johnson announced on Twitter. It will add new bug fixes, gameplay tweaks, and the much awaited new Stronghold mission called The Sunken. The update will be followed by a developer live stream later in the day.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection now has a 60 Hz tick rate thanks to the game’s April update. This puts it closer to the refresh rate of games like CS:GO and Overwatch, which helps cut down on things like rubber-banding and getting shot around corners. 343 Industries explains it in detail here.

If you’re playing Anthem you’ve probably seen this warning any time you’re more than a few seconds from your team. Today BioWare put out a 3 GB patch to fix the issue. “Players should now have more time to catch up to their Squad before seeing a countdown timer,” it reads.

Thanks to today’s Jump Force update, players can now skip the game’s hideous, frozen-faced cutscenes. The first big patch, already out on PS4 and PC and coming soon to Xbox One, also greatly improves load times and offers various battle and stability fixes. And hey, the fighting is still fine.
