Second Aliens: Colonial Marines Patch Released

By Michelle Balsan, 3 years ago
For the majority of gamers, Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines was something of a disappointment. Sure, it had some highlights, but it was plagued by enough issues that the reviews for the title, including our own, generally included more critique than praise.

Gearbox is taking those critiques to heart, however, and has been busily working to patch parts of the game. The first patch was released last month. Today, we have details to share with you about Title Update 2.
