Aliens: Colonial Marines Gets Another Console Patch

Hopeless botch job Aliens: Colonial Marines has received another major patch on PS3 and Xbox 360, which promises to "better protect save data," fix "some" of the erratic Alien animations and generally polish the turd a little bit more.

If you're interested, patch notes are after the break (courtesy of a Gearbox community update).


  • 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.
  • Adjusted aim assist to better reflect player input.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.


  • Tweaked enemy and friendly AI to be more aggressive and responsive.
  • Modified campaign difficulty to account for improved AI responsiveness.
  • Improved enemy collision detection regarding doors and Power Loader.
  • Players will no longer bleed out immediately when downed in a Power Loader.


  • Increased duration of Lurker Pounce Challenge “Cat-Like Reflexes” from 10 to 20 seconds.
  • Fixed issue where certain multiplayer challenges would not unlock properly for all characters.
  • Crusher pick-ups now correctly appear as highlighted for clients.

The PC version received a massive texture patch earlier this week.
