SEGA has pulled Alien: Isolation’s problematic PlayStation 4 patch, following reports that it rendered the release, well, unplayable. Writing on the title’s official forum, a representative for The Creative Assembly explained that it’s working with Sony on an updated version, and will issue that as soon as possible. For now, though, it recommends rolling back your game if you did happen to download and install it.
To do this, you’ll need to delete the title from your console – ensuring to hold on to your save data – and reinstall it. This is fine if you own the disc version, but is a bit of a headache if you’ve got the digital release, as you’ll need to download the entire title again. Not exactly great news, then, but things could be worse – after all, you could be stuck on an abandoned space station with nothing but a hungry Xenomorph for company.

what is it with this month and games not working?
@FullbringIchigo Haha, I know! Crazy coincidence...
I feel bad for people with 50GB data caps :/ I know how they feel.
Haven't any issues since the patch. Does this effect everyone or just the unlucky few.
I didn't have any issue after the patch but only played an hour or so and then saved...no idea if that save worked or not. I'll likely just not play again until the issue is sorted.
I ahvent tried it it since the patch auto installed... I might just copy me save to a usb stick and have a go. If it screws up I'll reinstall then.
Way to go Sega, screw up what was one of the better working games. What do these f'ing idiots do all day that sh*t like this is allowed to get through in the first place?
