"Wow, that's some bug"

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.
