Aliens: Colonial Marines Xbox 360 patched, PC and PS3 to follow

Friday, 8th March 2013 00:50 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Gearbox Software has issued an update for Aliens: Colonial Marines, packed to the brim with bug fixes.

The patch is out for Xbox 360 players, and Gearbox’s Twitter said PC and PlayStation 3 versions are “on the way”.

Full patch notes are available on the Gearbox forum, but the latest update applies a number of important fixes to the Xbox 360 version of the shooter.

In the campaign co-operative mode, Gearbox believes it has fixed the unreliable revive and spawn problems. It’s plugged up gaps in the maps players could walk through, and squashed an exploit which made marines invincible.

The ever-burning flamethrower has been extinguished, and achievements should unlock correctly now. NPCs should be better at navigation, and One Bullet has been tweaked so, uh, you don’t have access to more bullets than that.

Also, a new Xeno appearance customization has been added to Versus mode.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    @2

    you don’t get it… you have no option to back up this patch on the ps3. so when its gone in about 5-10 years. your left with the disc and it is broken. its not like i ever gonna play this more than once but its the principles, when i buy something i want to have it working. this release broken unfinished game, then patch it after your customers have played the game attitude, is utter shit…
