Microsoft has released the first of two reported updates for the Xbox One after a short delay, less than a month before the launch of the much-anticipated mech first-person shooter Titanfall, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

According to the report, the update, confirmed earlier this week by Microsoft, allows for Xbox One owners to manage storage space and control the install and download queue.

Also, two indicators have been established –– one showing how much battery power is left for the controllers and the other indicating the progress of downloads, which Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb said has been added to “better track updates while they load.”

The second of the two updates, which has been reported to be heading out on March 4, is supposed to address issues specifically geared toward optimizing the Xbox One for Titanfall before it’s release on March 11.

Improvements will be made to the party and multiplayer features of the next-gen console.
