Alienation Patch Lets you Form a Squad

Still no local co-op

Patch 1.01 for Alienation dropped on the PlayStation 4 on Monday. Much of this patch involves some bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, but it also adds a couple of new features, like being able to remove cores from your guns (previously you had to scrap the thing to get them back) and forming a squad of players before heading into a mission.

Though it's not a part of the update, the local co-op feature is still in the works. In fact, the developer even made note of this in their blog post about the patch and that they would provide an ETA for it as soon as possible. Here's a full list of all the updates and additions in the patch.

  • 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
    • 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
