Alienation Patch Out Now, Local Co-Op Arriving June (Ish)

Housemarque have got in touch to say a new patch for Alienation is out with a number of bug fixes and tweaks, including additional language support. The patch does not include local co-op but the team say they are working hard on that. They don’t have an exact ETA but “as a general indication, we’re targeting next month (June). ”

Here are the patch notes:



  • 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


  • 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


  • Antti’s memorial area added to fort Itaipu
  • Respawn beacon activation now creates shield around the beacon and the previously activated respawn beacon explodes
  • Possibility to create a squad from battles menu screen prior to entering a mission
  • Extra statistics shown in character and bestiary menu screens
  • Support for Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages
  • Cores can be removed from weapons


  • Mothership enemy level no longer scales with player level in World State 1. The enemy level will be locked to the level player was on when he first entered the Mothership
  • Font tweaks mainly for the asian fonts. This might cause layout changes in some places
  • Revolver has new particle effects
  • Mothership enemies in World State are now 2 levels weaker

  1. Nice list. Have only discovered one bug in the game and I’ve been hammering it.

    The best news (for me) is this – cores can be removed from weapons. That’s great news as cores become very precious the more you pour through them.
