Alienation patch 1.01 is now available!

2016 Housemarque

Hi there,
the first Alienation patch, focusing on bug fixing and improvements to the core product, is finally available.  Find below the detailed list of changes.

Warning: this patch does not enable local co-op, as we’re still working on it. A precise ETA for the second patch, including local co-op and more new features developed after listening to community feedback will be communicated as soon as possible.

We’d also like to remind you that the Alienation Soundtrack, composed by Ari Pulkkinen (Resogun, Dead Nation, Outland), is available on PSN store and can be purchased for $9.99/4.99€/£3.99.
