That means anyone can download the game and jump into its Battle Royale-style action without paying a cent!

Microsoft is bringing a few new features to Xbox One with a system update today that includes FastStart and grouping games.

According to Microsoft, games that utilize the feature will half the amount of time it takes from when a download begins to the moment you're actually able to play it. The July Update (version 1806) is part of the Redstone 4 development branch, which is analogous to the April 2018 Update on the Windows 10 PC side of things. It does this by identifying and prioritising the files that are needed to get stuck into a game sharpish, ensuring they are downloaded first. It's that simple. What's more, it's now enabled for select English language titles in our Xbox Game Pass catalog, and will expand to more games in more languages over time.

Microsoft has launched its Rewards app for Xbox One, which was previously in testing for certain Xbox Insiders, and it's available for you to check and see how many rewards you've accumulated, what you can spend the points on, and a way for you to join the program if you've not yet done so.

Microsoft is also introducing the ability to group games and apps, which essentially allows you to make collections or folders of your games to make your collection more organized and easier to search.

The game has been undergoing some big changes since it left the Xbox Preview Program, including the addition of Duo mode, invite a friend options, private matches, the Glider tool, skill-based matchmaking, and five new Show Director powers.

It's also possible that if your connection slows down while FastStart is still downloading a game in the background, you'll need to wait for the download speed to pick back up before you can continue playing.
