Aliens: Colonial Marines is verre van een goede game en Gearbox Software is sinds de lancering druk bezig met het patchen van de game om de speelervaring toch wat aangenamer te maken. Begin deze week lieten we je al weten dat in ieder geval het grafische aspect opgepoetst zal gaan worden. Dit is inmiddels bij de PC versie al doorgevoerd, maar de PS3 versie zal hier nog even op moeten wachten.

In de tussentijd is er al wel een nieuwe patch verschenen en deze brengt weer een hoop fixes met zich mee. Hieronder de volledige changelog.


  • Added additional safeguards to better protect save data.
  • Resolved an issue where a player’s level could sometimes appear incorrect when backing out of a party.
  • Addressed several scenarios under which players could spawn without a weapon.
  • Changes to better prevent audio from sometimes cutting out during end of mission cinematics.
  • Fixed issue where Xeno death animation was not properly calculating momentum of the killing blow.
  • Smart Gun animation now properly tracks targets.
  • Addressed some instances where Xenos would display erratic animations.
  • Increased light radius for player’s shoulder lamp.
