Gearbox has released a further update for Aliens: Colonial Marines, with the aim of making a pretty crappy game slightly less crappy.

A quick glance at some of the problems the patch addresses gives you a decent idea of the state of the game. Stuff like “players could walk or fall outside of maps” is not an insignificant issue.

But hey, now it’s fixed! At least they haven’t just left it to die, eh? You’ll find the full patch list below, courtesy of Gearbox.
