Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will be receiving to system updates –– one next week and another in March ahead of the Titanfall launch –– to better prepare users for the launch of the much-anticipated mech first-person shooter, according to a report today from GameSpot.

In a post to the Xbox Wire, Xbox One chief product officer Marc Whitten detailed the two Xbox One patches, which will head out on Feb. 11 and March 4.

The update next week will allow Xbox One users the ability to manage storage space in the next-gen console, which includes controlling the install lineup and download queue.

Also, the patch will give the Xbox One a battery power indicator so users can track how much power they have left in their controllers and will allow USB keyboards to be used with the console.

The March 4 update, which releases a week before Titanfall is to launch, will contain improvements specifically geared toward optimizing the Xbox One for the Microsoft exclusive title.

Perhaps most importantly, Whitten said party chat and multiplayer systems will see improvements and new features.

An online-only title, Titanfall launches for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on March 11.
