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.

MAJOR FIXES

  • Fixed the player sometimes going through walls after teleporting
  • Players no longer die if they fall off the mission area but rather get teleported to host or checkpoint restart
  • Players can no longer join/invade games that they shouldn’t be able to get in because of the visibility or invasion settings
  • Non-host squad members no longer spam the server with invalid messages while playing invite-only missions
  • Alien cores won’t fly outside the level anymore

MINOR FIXES

  • Bug enemy is now easier to hit at
  • Flamethrower hit detection improved to take account the alien size
  • Purchasing PS Plus membership while the game is running will now be instantly recognized by the game when trying to access a feature requiring PS Plus instead of a wait time up to 20 seconds
  • Fixed an issue with clients not being able to rejoin ongoing game if host loses network connection midgame
  • Performance improvement to Artillery strike that has the splash upgraded
  • General performance improvements
  • Trophy obtaining bugs that were fixed
