Texas Chain Saw Massacre Update Makes It Easier to Find Matches

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre game gets another update with some helpful fixes.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre got another update this week with some welcome changes that should make it easier for players to find matches. In order to shorten wait times between games, Sumo Nottingham and Gun Media made it so that matches can start with slightly fewer players instead of having to wait for a lobby that's 100% full for things to get underway. One downside to the update is that PC crossplay has been disabled in order for work to be done on anti-cheat measures, but that removal is only a temporary one.

Aside from the main matchmaking change that makes it so that lobbies can now launch into a game with only six players (though one of those six still has to be Leatherface), the other notable matchmaking change is the swapped order of menus before you start looking for a game. The "Quick Play" option has been moved up to the top to encourage players to use it to get into games quicker with Sumo Nottingham and Gun Media saying that this'll lead to fuller lobbies.
